I recently created a “Page” on Facebook for anyone that wanted to follow my health & fitness coaching business: Katie Wheeler. I post quotes, articles and information on what I’m doing almost everyday just to be more accessible and transparent.
I change the cover image for the group based on what I have going on that month so people can easily see what challenge group I’m promoting and learn more if they want to. Today I thought I’d show you all how I put together these covers in case you ever wanted to create something similar.
Step 1: Collect your images! I choose 3-4 images that fit in with what my group is about. Or if you want tho show off your recent vacation, pick some of your favorites! For the text I actually create that image in PicMonkey.
First I choose “Design” then I pick whatever shape works best for my text.
Then I click “Text” on the lefthand side; enter in the text, choose fonts, size and color; and then add more text based on whatever I want to put on the image.
Step 2: Now that I have all my images together and ready, I open PicMonkey again and choose “Collage” then choose “Computer” to pick out my images for the collage.
Once I’m ready to create my collage, I go to the size options and choose “FB Cover.”
Then I drag and drop my images into the spaces. You can adjust the boarders around the images by clicking on the paint palette board. You can also adjust the size of each image space by clicking in between and adjusting:
AND you can add in more images where you want by dragging them. Just look for the blue space that shows up as you drag the image over where you want it and drop! That’s what I did with the text below:
And then you’re done! Tada!
You can use these images on Facebook, or use the collage feature for any other type of collage you make. I love throwing it back to High School and making birthday collages to send through email, or post on instagram :).
Have you ever used PicMonkey?
Is there anything you’d like to learn how to do?
