        I think Ryan Seacrest and Damien Basile have utilized this new header feature quite nicely. I will give it a go once I have some free time for sure :)

    I have it under “Edit Profile”. I’m not sure though if my twitter page has been update to new platform whatsoever but probably others have the same experience too.

    That’s cool background! I like how they utilized the background for their brand, and those photos are cool too. Might as well change mine :)

    Just a small correction on this line. “When you scroll down to the bottom you will see Customize your own. Click change header botton and upload the JPEG file we just created.”

    On mine, I didn’t see “change header” button under settings. I have it under “Edit Profile”. I’m not sure though if my twitter page has been update to new platform whatsoever but probably others have the same experience too.

      Ooh! That’s bad. I think Twitter updated it when I was writing this tutorial the change header button is place on the design tab just right above the change background. Sorry for this Bandy. Thank’s for pointing it out. :)

    I love these header designs, I think it is great that twitter has finally come-up to speed with Facebook!
    I really like the designs where you match your head up with your body…..

    But I think I prefer the really abstract backgrounds like the Adobe one you showed….. I found a really good site that has heaps of Abstract Twitter Headers.

    That site is really worth a look.

    Never thought about creating my header on my own. It is easy to use something that is already created but if I can do that only in few steps why not.
    Also I like few ideas that you have here. Those 2 in the beginning are very cool.

    Very useful post! Trying to predict image sizes and resolutions in the various social media tools can take guesswork and several tries before getting it right… this will save time for myself and my clients when it comes to maintaining a consistent brand online. Thanks.

    I can’t afford the massive Photoshop, but i do have InkScape and GIMP. Is it possible to use these instead and still get the same effects as from Photoshop?
