How to Create Facebook Cover Images in Photoshop Elements 15
Creating Facebook Covers has been around for awhile in the Create Panel in the Organizer; however, the first efforts by Adobe were limiting and a bit clumsy. You had to struggle with a limited set of templates to simply add a background photo and a profile picture without any default text.
Now in Elements 15 Adobe has provided you with several new templates to help you create just the right Facebook Cover you want. A new list of templates appears in the Template Category.
To create a Facebook cover and upload the file(s) to your Facebook account, follow these steps:
- Select photos in the Organizer.
The Facebook cover option appears only in the Organizer’s Create panel; hence; you need to select your images in the Organizer first.
- Open the Create Panel and choose Facebook Cover. The Facebook Cover window opens.
The minute you choose Facebook Cover in the Organizer you are switched to the Photo Editor.
- Choose a theme.
The Facebook Cover Wizard opens. Click a theme and decide whether you want to use a single photo or multiple photos by clicking the corresponding theme category.
- Edit the images for position and size.
Click the green check mark when you have the image(s) sized to your liking.
- If you want, click the Save button to save the file as a .pse file that you can reopen and rework if you change your mind.
- Click the Upload button when finished.
You arrive at the Upload Photos to Facebook window. The window shows you a preview of how your new cover will appear. If you like what you see, click the Next button and follow the steps to upload the images to your Facebook account.
