Create a Facebook cover photo with a Windows 8 Start screen style

Facebook Cover Photo Windows 8

Looking for ideas creating a Facebook cover photo? Why don’t you try the Windows 8 cover photo creator. This is a social app that the Windows team has built and it connects to the user social stream, using friends, photos and likes, to compile a new cover image matching the Start screen style (“Modern” Windows 8 UI).

The app is not complicated to use and it has some basic customization that users can add. For example, while making a new Facebook cover, the user can select the background color or change the photos in the collage before saving to their profile.


Note: I tried to automatically set the cover image to a Facebook page, but could not do it. I ended up downloading the image and re-uploading to the my page and setting the cover manually.

If you are looking to do something fun and new to your Facebook profile, Windows 8 cover photo creator app is something that you need to try.
