    1. i cant upload my cover photo as there is no ‘cover photo’ or anything like that written on my timeline…. i have tried a billion times searching but it does not appear at all.

      • Are you sure you have got timeline activated for your profile ?? If yes just click on your name on the right top blue bar.. you will see the cover space box. In the cover box bottom right there will an option to add a new cover pic.

      • Check the dimensions of the image, If it is 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall or smaller than it then you will not be able to reposition it. If it is larger than that then you can easily reposition it according to your choice.

    2. Also mention the default Max Size of fb cover is 850 x315 , You can also share with your reader about us , we create cover photos using friend profile picture.
