Free Photoshop Template for Facebook Timelines

Just got around to making a new Photoshop template for proofing Facebook Timeline upgrades for our clients, and I thought I would share!

Now why would I make a new template as opposed to downloading one you ask?  I LOVE Photoshop smart objects and use them all the time. This template includes a smart object for app icons, the cover photo, and profile pic.

Each element is at actual display size and ready for your customization and proofing. Just create your profile pic and “replace contents”… rinse and repeat for cover photo, and app icons then you are all set!

A few other perks for you:

  1. The profile pic needs to be 180 x 180 in order to upload, but templates use the 122 x 125 display size. Our smart object is 180 x 180 so you can create at actual size and proof at display size.
  2. Text layer for personalizing the company name
  3. The Facebook static elements on their own layer with NO placeholder content and transparent pixels to let your customization shine on through.
Enjoy the download, and drop by our page to say howdy!

    THANK YOU! I was about to start making my own and decided to take five minutes out to search and saw this one that included that images for the tabs underneath (which is what no one else seems to be taking into account!) — You are my hero of the day! I’m actually running late on personalizing my own after not really liking my early design! Thanks a lot!

    Ok, so I am a photoshop newbie… How do you get the profile and cover pages to align? I get that you edit the cover and profile as smart objects, but is there a way to get them to align that is not by trial and error?

      Hi Azul –
      I am not sure I understand your question. The template is set up to match the facebook layout, so your final files should be the correct size when you upload them, and there is no aligning needed.

      If you want, send me over what you are working with and I’ll be happy to take a look at it! You can send the files to info @ designfiles.net

    How do you get the profile and cover pages to align?

      The Photoshop file uses smart objects, so all you have to do is place your art in the smart object files. If you want to manipulate how the art lines up, you just use Photoshops tools to accomplish the effect you are looking for.
      When you upload the files to Facebook, they will display in the designated area’s
