Creating Your Facebook Timeline

My NEW Facebook Timeline.
I've been wanting to do this for a while now and I finally got around to it today! It's so easy!

Steps To Create Your Facebook Timeline:

Step 1) Go to the florabella collection website and click on Facebook Freebies at the bottom.  You will then be redirected to their Facebook Page where you can download the Facebook Timeline Templates to your computer.  There are several different designs to choose from.  (There are also other sites that provide free Facebook Timeline Templates, but this was the one I used.)

Step 2) After downloading the templates, open it in Pixlr Express.  (You can also use other programs like Photoshop.)

Step 3) I chose one of the Collage Templates which works better with Pixlr.  Open the Collage Template in Pixlr by clicking on Browse and opening the Florabella saved file to your computer. 

Step 4) Click on Adjustment, then Add Image.  My images appeared very large so I had to make the size smaller by dragging the dot on the line at the bottom of the image.  Follow this step again to fill in all the boxes in your Collage Template.  Make sure your photos are lined up correctly.  Add Text if you like.

Step 5) Click Save on the upper left corner of the screen.  

Step 6) Open your Facebook Page and hover over the Facebook Timeline Image on the lower right.  You will see Change Cover which you can click on and open your saved Facebook Timeline Image! Done! Wasn't that easy?!

Look what I created with the FREE program Pixlr?!
Want to know how I did it?

I have been using Picnik, but they announced they were shutting down so I had to hurry up and find a comparable program.  In my research, I stumbled upon Pixlr.  It's awesome!

Step 1) Go to: http://pixlr.com/express. {This program is comparable to Picnik & Photoshop Elements.}

Step 2) Upload a photo from your computer.

Step 3) I used "Focal Blur" in the circle shape and centered it on my son's face so his face would not be blurry.

Step 4) I used "Effect, Default, Aladin" to give my photo its effect.

Step 5) I used "Border, Default, Flowery" to add the black border around the photo.

Step 6) I used "Text, Grunge, Boycott" for the Bible verse I added.

I really like how it turned out! I look forward to trying out many more photo editing tricks too! I could seriously do this all day I enjoy it so much! Anyways, I hope this simple mini tutorial helps you!
