You can influence the look of your Flickr homepage by adding a custom icon and banner image. When choosing the icon, look for an image that looks good in a small circle. As for the banner, this is a panorama format that is very wide and not very tall. You can use any image with enough resolution, and crop to fit the banner proportions.
