Create Your Own Google+ Profile Banner

Create a Google+ profile banner on your Google+ profile. In a few simple steps you can have one too with Google Plus Profile logo maker.

 

Creating a Google+ profile banner just became really easy thanks to the Google Plus Profile logo maker. A while back I created a profile banner for my Google+ profile, I’d done something similar when Facebook rolled out the feature to display you’re latest pictures across the top of your profile. I was stoked when I discovered mine was featured on Mashable’s Google+ Profile Hacks article. Since then several people have asked me how I did it. The “banner” across the top of your profile isn’t really a banner at all, but a series of five images, the myself and others decided to turn into one semi-continuous image for a fun effect.

So how did I do it? Truth be told, I did it the hard way! I measured the height and width of the boxes at the top of the Google+ profile page, re-sized an image, and then chopped that image up into slices that would fit the images sizes across the top of page with a graphics program (I used the free Paint.net). Thanks to the Google Plus Profile logo maker, you can whip one out much more quickly.

Here’s how:

 

  • Find an image that you want to turn into your “banner” (Google Images is a great place to start)
  • Go to the GPlusPic site at: http://gpluspic.com/banner and click on the “Choose File” button to upload your image to upload your image.

  • With your five new images saved, log onto Google+ and go to your profile. You can do this by clicking on your name on the top left of the screen, your email on the top right of the screen and selecting Profile from the drop down menu, or just get to it directly from this Google Profiles link. Beneath your name. click the text that says “Add some photos here”.
  • Upload all five of the images you downloaded from GPlusPic site and you’ve got a Google+ banner!
Once complete you’re profile will have a landscape profile image whenever someone visits your Google+ profile. Here’s an example from my profile:
