How to create a Facebook cover photo on your Android device

Finding the perfect cover photo for your Facebook Timeline while on the go seems near impossible. Using an Android app, you can upload and create your Facebook cover photo directly from your Android device.

Shortly after posting about how to create a Facebook cover photo on the iPhone , I found an Android app that allows you to create and upload a cover photo straight from an Android device.

The app, Facebook Timeline Covers: D33P, is free. Once you upload your cover photo creation, however, it will be stamped with a watermark promoting the app. Let's take a look at how the app works.

The app has a straightforward approach; after launching and allowing the app to access your Facebook account, you cap tap on either the blank cover photo or profile picture to choose which section you would like to edit.

You can browse some user-generated cover photos, or take a photo from your Facebook News Feed, a photo from either your or your friends' Facebook photos, or a photo from your Android device.

Once you've chosen your cover photo and/or a profile picture, you're allowed to preview what it will look like as a finished product on Facebook (minus the watermark, which is conveniently not shown until after you upload your cover photo).

You will need to log in to your Facebook account, view the album(s) the app has created for you, and set the newly uploaded photos as either your cover or profile picture, respectively.

A word to the wise: if you aren't going to change your profile picture, just leave the profile pic section blank in the app. If you don't, you will have a new album created with your profile picture being duplicated each time you upload a cover.
