How to Make Your Facebook Profile Smokin’ Hot with a LomoWall

With the new timeline format being rolled out all over facebook there are lots of grumbles and groans as people get used to the changes. Leap ahead of the crowd and use your cover photo to show off your very best LomoWalls in three easy steps, then sit back and enjoy the compliments from your 10,000 friends!

1. Go to your LomoHome and make a frickin awesome lomowall! Take a screengrab (On a PC Ctrl+printscreen then paste onto a blank document, on a mac Apple key ⌘ + Shift + 3 then find the file named ‘picture…’ on your desktop)

2. Open the screengrab in photo editing software, crop off the excess so that you just have your lovely LomoWall, save this as a jpeg

3. On your new facebook profile page, click ‘change cover’, upload your LomoWall, and enjoy!

    Great idea. When I switch over to the timeline format, i'll probably do this.

    Make it fit nicely by ensuring your saved image has the following dimensions:

    Width: 850px
    Height: 315px

    There are also some photoshop templates out there, which will allow you to set your profile pic so that it appears to be a cut out of the cover photo, which can display as a really nice effect:

    For example:
