How to use the Facebook Timeline Cover Photoshop Action… whew, that’s a mouthful! What this does is allow you to create cool looking photo collage Facebook timeline covers faster than if you were to try to do it all by hand. The Photoshop action actually will run from Adobe Bridge or even Lightroom… Just select 24 photos (or however many are needed for the template) and run the action and it will open each photo individually in Photoshop allowing you to crop each how you like it, one after the other. Then just click distribute and all of the photos are distributed neatly across your canvas. It saves quite a bit of time if you think about it. That’s the beauty of Photoshop Actions.
These special Photoshop actions were created in Photoshop version CS5.5. They should work fine in version CS3+, but unfortunately I don’t believe the actions work with Photoshop Elements at this time.
If you like this video please let me know. I’m working on adding a lot more video and appreciate any feedback you have. Let me know!
Btw, these actions are currently only available here and nowhere else, online or off. Pretty exclusive!
Here are some examples of Facebook timeline covers created using the Photoshop actions I created.
