How to “hack” Facebook profile

10 tips for Facebook users

One of the most important Facebook components for a user is their profile picture. This photo is displayed at the top left of the page. It can be a recently updated photo or it can be taken from any of your online albums.

Typically, the profile picture will show a portrait of someone and appear before the light gray line connecting from the left side of the profile to the leftmost tabs. The image below will show you a typical profile page with a common image.

Initial profile picture area

Unlike Myspace, Facebook uses the same color and layout for all profiles. This makes your site look better overall, but it also limits your ability to look like the profile. You can display Facebook apps in the left sidebar, put them in tabs, but any changes to the style of the page or how it is displayed are limited.

Hack Facebook profile picture

There is no valid way to “hack” Facebook, but there is a method to change your profile picture, make your profile more beautiful, more eye-catching, aka the profile picture arrangement for Facebook. allows you to slightly modify Facebook’s rather rigid profile layout.


When you create a profile picture from an image in your album, Facebook will allow you to crop that image to any size you choose. When you go to your profile page, the selected photo will be displayed with the same scaling as the width and height allowed by Facebook.

The first thing you need to understand here is the amount of time you need to spend on it. Facebook displays profile pictures with a maximum width of 200 px. If you exceed this size, it will automatically size your image down to 200 px and still maintain the correct height ratio. Facebook will display a profile photo up to 600px high. That means it will display any image up to 200 x 600, otherwise it will be resized or resized.

The background image for the profile is empty

Now that you know the maximum size of photos in your profile, the basic trick here is very simple. Facebook sets the image to display with the highest position of the image above the gray line at 52 pixels. Normally, all of your photos are placed at that height on this line.
To do a split line break in your profile, you just need to create a grayscale image ((#D8DFEA) with size 52 pixels below the vertex.Additionally you need to redraw the area above the split line. This split follows to match the light blue color (#EFF0F5) used in the profile header.

For more information about the colors used in the Facebook style sheet, you can refer to the following link for Facebook application developers.

Replacing this blank template allows you to do something that Facebook normally doesn’t allow: the option to not show profile pictures. A new Facebook account that doesn’t have a profile picture will show a blank photo box with a blurred profile picture on it. Using this blank line pattern allows you to add a ‘negative’ space to your profile which is normally not possible.

The fun starts here when you overlay an image over the top of the blank template. The hardest part of this implementation is isolating the image so that it can be clearly delineated from the background image pattern. Our suggestion in this case is to use Adobe Photoshop to draw a selection around your image, then remove the corners.

Put you in a living room on your Facebook profile

There’s a lot of cool stuff here that you can do by pairing foreground photos with a Facebook background photo template. The first thing that I did here was create a small living room and put myself in it.

You can rely on the gray line to make it look like you’re hanging on. Start by taking a picture of yourself swinging on the door, then split the photo. Then overlay the image over the white version of the Facebook profile picture template.

Here are the photos in progress and the end result:

Create a photo with a wall effect

And here is the profile picture when using this effect.

Another interesting preimage you can use is a photo of a giraffe. This photo gave the profile a lot of fun and because it pushed the information of the left part down.

Adjust the gray line

There is a lot that can be done with the gray line surface, such as creating a curved or pointed corner that interacts with the overlay image. You can see an example of this hack in the photo above. The image above shows a few stalactites falling on a blue unicorn and the earth in the middle of the header.

Separating an image in Photoshop is like using scissors to cut an image from a magazine. Photoshop has a powerful set of tools, a magic wand, and a quick selection tool to help you. There are many guides on how to do the selection, here is one of the documents that we recommend for your reference.

  • Select and split objects on DPF
  • Select and separate objects on video
  • Video tutorials with images on the Quick Selection tool.

another problem

Hack several different parts. The simplest way is to post a status update that is too long to cover two uses of text. You can avoid that by posting a lengthy status upgrade, then wiping it out. See in the photo below on this issue. That will empty your current status, but the upgrade will still appear on your news feed and the hacking illusion will be maintained.

Another point to note in using this hack is to display your profile picture in the wall list. The profile picture is often shrunk a bit. Plus it’s that if you choose a photo that’s 200×600 it’ll be more appropriate and separate your photo from others on Facebook when you show it in the list.

Conclusion and download

A Facebook presence is an important part of an individual’s online exposure. You can completely make yourself a little different on the Facebook network by adjusting the look of this special profile.
