How to Create a Free Facebook Profile Frame Overlay

Facebook launched their Facebook Profile Frame Overlay Maker a while back, giving everyone the opportunity to add a design or brand overlay to a profile image. It’s pretty simple to add the artwork and set it up, but be aware that the design is a little tricky. If you need some help, contact us and we’ll get you going.

  1. Go to Facebook Camera Effects Page to begin.

  2. Click on create frame in the top right corner.

  3. Click get started and begin the process of creating your custom Facebook frame. This will give you a popup window that you just need to follow the prompts.

  4. Facebook requires a PNG file format and they prefer an image that is 600 x 600 px. Upload your design by clicking on the “Upload Art” button then size it accordingly.

Here’s the trick. You’ll note that it will show you a preview in a circle for mobile and a rectangle as well. Designing for both of these inputs is a little tricky, so contact a designer, or us and we can help you get there. Know that most people snap photos of shoulders on up and you have to avoid obscuring their face. Adjusting the opacity of color blocks can allow their face to show through, while overlaying your design.

if you need help, we can help you. We do minor work like this all the time for Talloo members and friends.

Have a great day!
