With all of the Facebook changes recently, it’s hard to keep up and it can cause major headaches for photographers. Facebook’s most recent change is the “Timeline.”  If you do not have it yet, you will soon.   Use our new FREE Facebook Timeline Cover Templates and you will never struggle with what to place at the top.

We’ve created seven unique, fully-customizable Photoshop Timeline Cover Templates. Photographers can use these templates to display pictures on their personal page, blog, or elsewhere on the web.

They are easy to use.  Just pick your picture(s), adjust the size and BAM! You have a timeline cover that all your friends will envy.  In addition to learning how to use them, our video tutorial teaches you how to make your own Timeline Cover Templates, using the included blank template.

* Our standard terms of use apply.  Please read these prior to downloading from our cart.
** Disclaimer: When you upload a cover to Facebook, it will not be as crisp as in Photoshop. Facebook heavily compresses all Timeline Covers, not just ours,  in an unfavorable way. If we find a way to avoid this, we will make sure to let you know.

    Oooh I really like these. Can’t wait to use one of them. My friends are going to be so jealous. I just might have to keep this one a secret. LOL

  7. Celeste on January 30, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    First, I have really enjoyed your blog since I found it. It’s very helpful. I tried to download the templates, however, and I cannot upload them into photoshop. Do you have instructions on how to do that? I have no problem loading actions, I just can’t figure out templates. Thanks!

  8. Ryan Jaime on January 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    sweet! I already made one for myself, but these are awesome too!

  9. Amy on January 30, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    I just got the filmstrip timeline up on my FB page. Thank you so much Jodi! These are awesome!

  10. AMiller on January 30, 2012 at 9:43 pm

  11. PancakeNinja on February 2, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    There’s something about the filmstrip that I just really like.

  12. Hot teach on February 3, 2012 at 8:58 am

    Important information thanks.

  13. DonnaC on February 5, 2012 at 12:30 am

    Thank you so much for these templates, I didn’t have a clue how to use them until I watched your awesome tutorial ~ thank you for that too = )

  14. jkay on February 5, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    Thanks for the free templates. I’m a newbie to PSE9, so thanks also for the video tutorial.

  15. Melissa on February 25, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    Thank you for this. I am new to photoshop elements, so this will help me know how to make custom templates using the info from the video. I love storyboards — now I feel like I can do it.

  16. Sarah C on February 26, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Thank you!

  17. madisoncary on March 1, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    hi there! thank you so much for the easy tutorial! however, for my logo as my cover photo, i am having difficulties with the colors showing up correctly on facebook…. :-/ i’ve tried web-safe colors and it still won’t look right… any tips on solving this would be much appreciated! thanks!

      Unfortunately that is all facebook – you can smile and thank them. As long as you are in sRGB, from there, you can thank them for the color issues and pixelation of your images and graphics. I wish they would not compress so much.

  18. Mark C on March 5, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    Do we just download these and store them as psd’s or do they need to be placed in like actions or plugins? this one wasn’t clear or I just missed it in may haste?

  19. Kristin on March 9, 2012 at 12:48 am

    I downloaded your files to make my timeline but I cannot open them in my CS5. It says the file is not a valid photoshop document. Am I doing this wrong?

  20. How to on March 12, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    thanks for your advice I will do facebook timeline cover with my idea.

  21. Angel on March 13, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    If you are a poor designer and just got a Gimp or Paint.NET you can grab premade template from my blog. Sure the PSD file is also included.

  22. Clipping Path on March 14, 2012 at 5:02 am

    Fantastic post i really like your post very much. I’ll visit your blog again.

  23. John on March 29, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    Facebook now says your cover image may not include contact information, and may not be primarily text based… I wonder if your “Jodi” cover image would be allowed?Cover images must be at least 399 pixels wide and may not contain:ä_æ Price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it at our website”ä_æ Contact information, such as web address, email, mailing address or other information intended for your Page’s About sectionä_æ References to user interface elements, such as Like or Share, or any other Facebook site featuresä_æ Calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends”

    • Jodi Friedman, MCP Actions on March 29, 2012 at 8:00 pm

      The one I have up does not have much text at all. Just my name and images for personal one and MCP and pictures and a little text (none that does what you describe above).They do not want your cover being a big ad.

  24. Rae Higgins on April 29, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Thanks!!

  25. tawnya on August 15, 2012 at 9:20 am

    I was able to download and open up the filmstrip FB template, but I cannot get pictures into it! Soooo frustrated. When I do “file,” then “place” it wants to stay in the PSD format and my pics of course are all jpegs. HELP!!!

  26. Charlene on August 28, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    I’ll be giving these a try thanks.

  27. Tonya on October 7, 2012 at 2:49 pm

    any plans for a similar thing for lightroom?

  28. Anuraag on May 21, 2013 at 2:48 am

    Simply Good Jodi. Just downloaded the templates and will do some changes and upload it on my Facebook. Thanks for such amazing things. Will be back soon

    If you want to obtain a good deal from this article then you have to apply these strategies to your won webpage.

  30. Jaime on February 21, 2014 at 12:16 am

    Thank you! Needed a new facelift on my Facebook!

  31. Heather on March 17, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    Sorry, reposting to explain further. When I use “place” and try to get the photo to match the size of the boxes it makes them all distorted and smushy looking…am I doing something wrong?
