Facebook fan pages offer terrific opportunities to promote your business and grow your audience. The great big header at the top of each fanpage is often times under utilized space to market what it is you have to offer. PicMonkey is a tool you need to use to help use that space more effectively. There’s a really cool online photo editing tool called PicMonkey.com. It’s free to use and packed full of features that will allow you to create great images to use on your blogs and websites. It’s easy to use and even has a neat option specific to the sizing needed to make a photo collage for Facebook cover. You can create a image easily that’s just as unique as your business. I mentioned it was free, right? There’s no registration either – Yay!
Before you start – stop worrying, you don’t have to be a Graphic Designer to use this software. I promise, it’s really easy!
The first thing you want to do is choose “Create a Collage”. Once in the photo editing area, you’ll be able to choose a variety of options for your photo collage including uploading your own photos, choosing the collage layout and things like spacing, rounded corners and background color.
Once you’ve made your selections, you can upload your photos and add them to the image spaces in the editor by dragging them where you want them. The best part is, you can create your own layout by dragging edges of the images in the collage to resize that space. Add in more photos to create a unique format and even move the photos around in each box to highlight a specific area.Make a photo collage with PicMonkey online photo editor
