Actors… Does your twitter header look like this?


twitter blue header


Your social media headers should show casting directors, agents or directors who you are! Are you the sensitive boy next door or the confident business man? Decide and make sure the headshot you choose for your profile picture and the header images you create reflect that type. This blue box above, an ocean scene or a field of flowers does nothing for you! Create an image- it will become your brand and use it for all your social media accounts.

So you’ve thought about your type and you’ve chosen the perfect picture but you’ve realized Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest all have their own idea of the perfect sized photo.

What do you do?

Well… if you are a little more tech savvy you can always use good ole’ Photoshop to create your social media header images. If you don’t have Photoshop check out my personal favorite Pixlr (which is pretty much free photoshop online). At the bottom of this blog I’ve also included the sizes of photos required for all major platforms if you are going the complete DIY route.

For everyone else… here are 3 tools that will help you create beautiful social media headers & profile photos and will even re-size your images for your posts no matter what platform you are on (with NO photo editing experience needed).
