I have been trying to re size my cover photos so all of it can be seen.  Haven’t been able to do this,  Any hints?

Thank you

If you use Picasa – here’s a video specifically on creating a collage for a Facebook cover photo … and sizing it properly:

  1. Using a Collage as Facebook Cover Photo

Even if you don’t use Picasa, this video should help give you the details of the sizing.

Let me know if this helps.

I tried that, no go.  The photos are all 4X6 and that, I guess, is a wrong size for the cover.  Oh well, so be it.  :(

How about putting several 4X6 photos together in a collage?  Then you can make it be the right dimensions.  And, you can always crop to the Facebook cover dimensions (Cover photos are 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall)
