Adding a Cover Image to Your Profile Page
By default, your profile picture appears against a blue tinted background on your Profile page. You can, however, select a banner image (called a cover) to appear on the top of the page (see Figure 3). It’s a nice way to personalize what visitors to your Profile page see.

To add a cover image, click the Add a Cover button at the top of your Profile page. (To change an existing cover image, hover over the image and click the Change Cover button.) A pop-up menu now appears with two options: Choose from My Photos and Upload a Photo.
To select a cover image from those photos you’ve uploaded to Facebook, click Choose from My Photos. When the Choose from Your Photos dialog box appears, select one of the photos of you, or click View Albums to select a photo from one of your photo albums.
To select a photo from your computer, click the Upload a Photo option. When the Choose File to Upload or Open dialog box appears, navigate to and select the picture you want to use, and then click the Open button.
You’re now prompted to drag to reposition the cover image. Use your mouse to position the image appropriately, then click the Save Changes button.
That’s it. Your Profile page now has a new banner image at the top.
