Adaptation of Facebook Timeline cover and avatar with a template
For Facebook, there are already some so-called hacks: Album hack, profile hack and now there is the Timeline hack...
With these "hacks" you change look of your Facebook profiles/pages/etc by individual images that are seen in the whole as a single image.
Therefore I created a Photoshop template, which allows you a quick and simple preparation.
The dimensions of the Timeline header image is 851 x 315 pixels (wxh) and the avatar image 180x180 pixels, but is reduced from Facebook automatically to 125x125 160x160 pixels.
Timeline Hack Step by Step
- After the download unzip the file and open fb_timeline_template.psd
- In the layers folder "personalization" do your personalisation
- Then hide the layer "overlay" and create two separate pictures (use the guides or the layers "avatar" and "header" for the sizes of the pictures) - you dont need this step if you use the supplied action set!
- Upload them and choose it as avatar and title picture.
Update Facebook Timeline Template v1.1
Paul I. has send me a revised version. Thank you Paul!
Now its bigger to avoid facebook errors with the files and I added a Photoshop action (double-click on the Facebook_timeline_hack.atn Photoshop action to add) In the action pallet you can run the action and it automatically creates the two needed pictures for you.
