I have been having way too much fun in Facebook lately with their timeline images. I play a game called EverQuest and EverQuest 2, well actually to be honest I play a lot of games lol. I’ve been taking screen shots from the game so that I can make a banner and an icon that blends together perfectly. It gives the illusion that the picture of me in the icon is floating on the banner, or at least I think so. Take a look at this one of my half-elf from EverQuest 2 on one of my Facebook profile. Of course last night I changed it so it’s my image, but doesn’t that blend together nicely?
I actually got the idea to do this from the Sears Facebook page. I’m sure other pages are doing the same thing, but I haven’t seen a lot of them.
It took some trial and error, but I figured it out. I have a template that I use where I put in the background image under the frame, then I select the banner and hide the frame then copy and paste the banner into a new image. Then I show the frame again so I can copy the icon and I paste that into a new image and then add my character (or my real picture which I cropped out the background) and viola, icon that blends with the banner.
I think this is so cool, I wish my Blog had this feature lol.
