The cover image is the first thing your Facebook friends see when accesing your profile (timeline) page. It is also one of the key elements that you can customize to make your profile page stand out.
To create a cover image on your own you will need to create a image that is 850 by 350 pixels in size. Anything smaller or larger will be adjusted to this size (either by crop or stretch) so it’s best if you create it in the optimal size from the first time. You will also need to take into account that the profile photo will be overlayed over the bottom left corner of your cover photo so don’t place there any important elements (text, key images) otherwise it might be covered by the profile image. For a more creative effect you can make the profile image integrated in the cover photo.
Here are a few nice examples:

You can see below a few of the results, I will add them to the collection very soon:
Grunge and rust textures are widely used in graphic design, so here is a list of 15 such images you can use for free:
It is said that a image is worth a thousand words, this is why I am sure a large majority of the people reading this needed a image to use in their day to day life to express something. No matter if you work in design, web, marketing or any other industry field, you had a moment when you needed a certain image for your work projects, presentations or just to decorate your wall.
