Facebook Timeline Template With Downloadable Template

Your Facebook cover photo is like a billboard for your business page. Yet some businesses select images that are the wrong size, or that don’t represent the business properly for its fans. Attempting to use an image that is too small will result in the cover photo becoming pixelated, and could result in people leaving your Facebook page before even checking out your content.  Since the cover photo is one of the first things your potential fans will see on the page, it is very important to make sure the image is clear and tells some kind of story.

This is a great example of a header photo from Good Pop because you can tell at a glance exactly what they do. The welcome message serves as both an invitation and a delicious pun. It gives the viewer a clear idea of what kind of information they may find on this Facebook page, as well as what kind of products they sell. (It’s also worth noting that it is no longer against Facebook’s Terms and Agreements to include a “Like This Page” instruction in your cover photo.)

After your cover photo, your fans are likely to notice your profile photo. This should ideally be your logo or another image that helps to brand your company, since the profile photo appears in your fans’ newsfeed and will be the image that they most associate with your business. When you create your profile photo, make sure you once again choose a photo of the correct size so that it doesn’t appear to be pixelated or have important elements cut off.

With these two elements in place, you are ready to produce some kick-ass content for your fans. Eventually you may be interested in custom apps to engage your fans and your friends on your Facebook page. Custom apps can also be loaded with custom images for the app button on Facebook’s timeline.

Above you see two images of custom apps with the wrong image dimensions. If your Facebook app image is larger or smaller than the correct size it will display like this, with the left and right sides cut off to form a border. When you size the image correctly, as in the two custom app images below, you can get a much cleaner and more professional look.

In this Facebook timeline template, everything is already correctly sized. All you have to do is overlay your image, re-size or crop it to match the replaceable layer’s size, and save it for the web.  I have also listed the most commonly used Facebook images and their dimensions below.
