Editing your cover photo

So when you set up a new Flickr account or your account gets moved to the new look in Flickr, as we've all experienced now, Flickr will add a cover photo for you. That is, something to get you started, but at some point you might want to add your own cover photo. And you notice that when I mouse over the cover photo here, I get this button right here to edit cover photo, and I click on that. And I can either choose an image from my existing photo stream, or I can upload a photo.

I'm going to go ahead and I'll just go ahead and choose one right here. Now once that it has been selected, we can drag the image into position here just like this. And once it's the way that we like we can go ahead and save it. And now we have a new cover photo, and you can change this on a regular basis, it's very easy to do as you just saw so you can even go with your mood. So for instance if you want to go, I'm in a fall color mood today, and I want to change my cover photo just go here and we'll scroll down. You can experiment.

In this case, you can just position it so it works out nicely where the leaves just work right around the name right there. I go oh I like that. Click Save. And there you go. Now one thing that I've discovered, this seems like abstract photos work very nicely for this. And especially where you have soft areas, that's the type to go against, like the shot right here. So that is changing the cover photo. It's easy. You can pull from your photo stream, or you can just pull from images right off your computer.
