Where to Find Unique Facebook Cover Photos?

facebookFacebook first announced the Timeline layout more than a year ago. It was met with lots of resistance at first, but with the passage of time more and more Facebook users are warming up to the new design. Now that Timeline is the default Facebook layout, a new market for unique cover photos have started to appear. Over the last few months several of these wallpaper-like sites have sprung up and their numbers will continue to grow, until the next Facebook redesign.

You should know that it’s possible to create your own Cover Photos using any image editor that allows cropping or image resizing. The dimensions to keep in mind are: 851 pixels in width and 315 pixels in height. If you upload an image that's smaller than these dimensions, it will get stretched. The same way, if you upload a larger image, it will be squeezed to fit. To prevent distortion upload a JPG file that's exactly 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall, and to get the fastest load times for your Page, make sure the file size is less than 100 kilobytes. Use Paint.Net to crop and resize the images and then use RIOT to drastically reduce the size of the image file without any noticeable loss in quality.
