How to Change Your Facebook Timeline Cover Photo
Your Facebook timeline cover photo is the large photo that serves as a background to your Profile. People often choose visually striking photos or images that really speak to who they are and what they love —you’ll see a lot of nature shots. To change your cover photo, follow these steps:
Hover over your existing cover photo.
A Change Cover button appears in the bottom right corner of the photo.
Click the Change Cover button.
This opens the Change Cover menu, which has four options: Choose from Photos, Upload Photo, Reposition, and Remove.
Click Choose from Photos to select a cover photo from photos you’ve already added to Facebook.
This opens the Choose from Your Photos window. By default, it shows Recent Uploads. You can get to a full list of your photos by clicking View Albums in the upper right corner.
Alternatively, you can choose Upload Photo to select a cover photo from your computer. This opens a window for navigating your computer’s files.
Select your cover photo by clicking your desired album and then the desired photo within that album.
This brings you back to your timeline, where you should see the new cover photo in place with an overlaid message, Drag to Reposition Cover.
Alternatively, you can select the photo file you want as your cover and click Open. This brings you back to your timeline, where you should see the new cover photo in place with an overlaid message: Drag to Reposition Cover.
Click and drag your cover photo to position it correctly within the frame of the screen and click Save Changes.
Your new cover photo is now in place.
If you don’t like the way your cover photo is positioned, you can use the same Change Cover Photo to either reposition or remove your cover photo. You can change your cover as often as you want.
