The new header layout is available to all Twitter users from the Design tab in your settings page on Twitter.com. However, adjusting your selected photo to the exact dimensions and layout of the new header can be tricky.

Fortunately, there's a layout to help. Designer Shelby White has provided this PSD file for anyone wanting to customise the header, to take into account the placement of the profile picture and description.

By using Smart Objects in the PSD template, White has made it easy to edit and update the images and linked objects, all at once.
