Changing your Facebook cover photo is a great way to personalize your profile and showcase your creativity or interests. Here’s how you can change your Facebook cover photo:
1. Login to Facebook: Open the Facebook app or visit the Facebook website and log in using your username or email address and password.
2. Go to Your Profile: Once you’re logged in, click on your name or profile picture in the top navigation bar to navigate to your profile page.
3. Click on the Cover Photo: On your profile page, hover your mouse cursor over the cover photo area at the top of the page or the existing cover photo. You should see a “Change Cover” or camera icon appear on the photo.
4. Choose a Source for your New Cover Photo: Click on the “Change Cover” button or camera icon, and a dropdown menu will appear with different options for selecting a new cover photo.
5. Upload Photo: Select “Upload Photo” to choose a photo from your computer or device’s storage. You can browse through your files and select the image you want to use for your cover photo. Once you’ve selected the photo, click “Open” or “Choose” to upload it.
6. Choose from Photos: If you have previously uploaded photos to Facebook, you can select “Choose from Photos” to browse through your existing Facebook albums and photos. Select the album or photo you want to use as your cover photo.
7. Reposition: If the photo you selected doesn’t fit perfectly within the cover photo frame, you can click on the “Reposition” option to adjust the positioning of the photo within the frame.
8. Remove: If you want to remove your current cover photo and not replace it with a new one, you can select the “Remove” option. This will remove the existing cover photo from your profile.
9. Adjust and Save: Once you’ve selected a photo or uploaded a new one, you can adjust its position and dimensions within the cover photo frame. Drag the photo to position it as desired or use the resizing handles to adjust its size. Once you’re satisfied with the cover photo, click “Save Changes” to apply it to your profile.
Your new cover photo will now be visible on your Facebook profile. The dimensions for Facebook cover photos are typically 820 pixels wide by 312 pixels tall, but Facebook may resize or crop the photo to fit the space.
Note: Cover photos can be a way to express yourself, but make sure to comply with Facebook’s Community Standards and guidelines regarding appropriate content.
