Using Photo editor or graphic editor for a Perfect Twitter Background

This tutorial will explain you how to create your own Twitter background Using Photo editor or graphic editor for a Perfect Twitter Background.

5 basic steps to design an image for Twitter Background:

  1. Step 1

    First you will need an image or picture that you want to use for your twitter background layout. There are lots of websites to find free photos and vector images or royalty free ones that are very cheap. I like to use photobucket.com for my images since they are free to use. There are LOTS of pictures and images so be sure you can describe what you are looking for to search for it and have some time to go through them. You can also use any picture that you may already have but make sure that the subject or objects are large enough that it will still look okay as you will have to enlarge it to fit the computer screen.
    The easiest way is go to Google: search keywords "Best Twitter Backgrounds", there are many Good Designed Twitter Homepages. Then access to your favorite sites, for example http://twitter.com/stevenpitts, and
    right-click outside the background, select "View Background Image" on the context menu and then save the image (FF) or "Save Background As…" (IE).  But becoming a "clone" of another person is not totally enjoyable.

  2. Step 2

    If you don't have photo editing software or graphics editing software like Adobe Photoshop don't panic. There are many applications that you can download free on the internet. My favorite is paint.net which is very similar to Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Paint. I have found this to be easier to use than Paint since I can manipulate the image as I please.

  3. Step 3: twitter background size
     

     

     

    When you upload your image to make a twitter page, you need to resize the canvas or work area. The twitter background size I use is the same dimension I use for making blog template or layout. Under print size, set it to a width of 14.50 inches by a height of 11.00 inches. This may seem rather large but it ensures that the page layout will cover the entire area on your computer screen which can vary depending on which browser you use.

  4. Step 4

    Once you have your twitter image uploaded, you can crop it or change it how you would like. Just make sure it covers the whole work area in your photo editor. You can also layer other images onto the same image if you choose. The possibilities are quite endless. When you are done, name your file and save your file as a gif, jpg, or png file in order to upload it to twitter. You will also need to make sure that the file size is 800k or smaller which you can see when you are saving it. If it is too large, you can resize your background image and save it again. Make sure you know where you are saving your image file so that you can find it again when you are ready to upload your twitter design.

  5. Step 5

    To upload a twitter background, log into the twitter website and go to the settings tab. Click on change background image. Click on browse and find your background image file. Click on save changes to upload your background image file. Once it is saved you should see the change take effect and your new twitter background will be up for you to enjoy.

  • jasmine cams Intimately, the post is in reality the freshest topic on this registry related issue. I concur with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your forthcoming updates. Saying thanks will not just be enough, for the wonderful clarity in your writing.

  • Fine to back your blog, I get back it again pro re a month, pronto I bear bookmarked it….

  • I also had a problem like that just a little while ago but thanks to countless experimentation and multiple “trial and errors”, I finally knew how to make the perfect combination of background sizes to keep different monitors and user’s preferred screen resolution in mind. After all the time I spent, I wish I would have found your calculations sooner!

    By the way, if it helps, I have come across some backgrounds that I have used in my experimentation on finding and making the perfect background sizes with details that can be seen in different screen resolutions and monitors; “cute twitter backgrounds”, “hot twitter backgrounds”, and “retro twitter backgrounds”.

  • I’ve been visiting your blog for a while now and I always find a gem in your new posts. Thanks for sharing.

  • A different theme would be good on this blog.

  • Love that statement. It is, of course, close to the truth. Not sure if “brilliant” but very creative.

  • I’ve been surfing online more than three hours lately, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. ItЎ¦s beautiful value enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you did, the internet will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

  • Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

  • I hosted my new site from powweb, and did a little work on it, then I downloaded joomla and I am navagating through joomla trying to find how to upload my material from powweb? I tried to get into powweb website maker and it doesn’t work… obviously because I downloaded joomla. Now, I also can’t access joomla from powweb, I have to go to the joomla website. If someone could help me out that would be great because i’m very confused!!!!!! This is my first time ever making a site so… speak english! Thanks!.

    • Post the wrong place. This is WP

  • I hope they can bring Peyton back for Brookes wedding. That is her best friend. As for her showing up taking focus of their wedding well Leyton wedding was mostly about Brooke/Julian but I doubt her showing up will take focus off the wedding. I would not want Quinn in Brookes wedding.

  • Thanks for tris interesting information! I found it very useful =)

  • I’ve recently been sticking with you around the net all of the working week, whether that or we have now similar style seeing that I’m previously been following several of the exact same posts. Thank you!
