The Timeline is an interesting addition to Facebook, wherein you can add a profile and cover photo to share your memorable and candid moments. You can either simply add two photos, or get a bit creative by adding one seamless photo. The second option is where you essentially add two different pictures to the profile and cover sections, but they are so seamless that they appear to be one big photo. While it may sound something only professionals can do, it is rather simple thanks to these third-party apps and services. Let’s take a look at how you can create an integrated profile and cover photo without any hassle. Also Read - WhatsApp delays privacy policy update; you now have time until May 15 to accept

Android App – Cover Cam for Fb

One of the advantages of owning an Android smartphone is that there are plenty of apps available on the Google Play Store. Cover Cam for FB is one such free app that lets you create amazing Facebook cover and profile photos. It’s an easy to use app with a clutter-free design and simple functionality.

seamless-FB-profile-photo-androidThe app allows you to capture Profile and Cover pictures in one shot, ultimately making it look like a single image. Once the photo is clicked, it automatically crops images into required size and saves them in your smartphone’s photo gallery. You can then upload these photos to your Facebook timeline to create a seamless effect.

In addition to the aforementioned app and service, there are other sites as well, such as the TimelineSlicer where you can upload an image, and then crop it to fit the profile and cover sections. Unlike Timelinecoverbanner, this website doesn’t let you tweak brightness, contrast, nor does it let you add text and shapes.

InstaCover is another interesting service that lets you add your Instagram photos to create a photo collage for your cover photo. You can either sign-in with your Instagram ID to fetch photos uploaded by you, or you can select a category, such as Pets, Cars, Nature, and Flowers among others to create photo collage. These services are free, easy to use and do not require any special skills. So, go ahead; make the most of these services and show off your creativity.
