Twitter Cover Photos

First Facebook added a cover photo option to profiles, then recently, Twitter and LinkedIn jumped on board as well, making the new social media industry standard to have a large banner-sized image at the top of every user’s profile. Some people have added custom images and gotten quite creative, while others may lack the technical skill or simply the time and energy to add their own Twitter cover photo.

That’s where TwitrCovers.com comes in. The website has a large gallery of images to choose from that any professional can use. Typically, cover photo generators, like those you may have seen for Facebook, come with watermarks all over the image of the website it was uploaded from, or the photos are low quality, or more commonly, the images just aren’t appropriate for professional users. Not so with TwitrCovers. We liked them so much that we’ve highlighted 33 of the 100ish options from the site.

As seen in the image below, you can manually upload one of the high resolution images to your profile yourself, or you can do what we did, and click the first option, the big blue bar underneath the image:

If you opt to click the blue button to automatically make it your Twitter cover photo, it will then take you to permissions and ask you as a signed in Twitter user to authorize their uploading the photo for you. Hint: what we did was say yes, allow the app to do its magic, then go into Settings, then on the left clicked Apps, and found the TwitrCover app and clicked the Revoke Access button, so it no longer had access to our accounts. The cover photo on our profiles stayed, and their permission went away, leaving us feeling secure.

After granting permission, it redirected us, then you’re done.

  5. I don’t understand whether these images are FREE or not. Can anybody tell me?
    Thanks!

    • Confused, they sure are – they’re all creative commons images which mean they’re royalty free. Feel free to use them! 😀
