Looking for something different for your twitter background?  Want something that expresses you without the usual “box on the side, listing about you information”

Create a Picnik collage and upload as your background!!  What could say more about you than a collage of personal photos and graphics!!?

It’s easy…start by going to picnik.com, and click “Collage”.

You will have to determine the number of squares you want in the collage.  It can be a lot (so your images look smaller) or just a few (so your images look larger).  In the end you are going to be tiling the image on your background so you may see images more than once.  You also need to determine the spacing and proportions.  You will see how many options you have!  I kept mine as the default proportions and set my spacing at “0”.

I made mine as a 5×4 grid.   You choose what design you like, or play around!  Time to upload photos.  You can use a variety…

  • your family
  • your home
  • your animals
  • food photos if you love to cook
  • products you love or have reviewed
  • brands with which you have a relationship
  • your blog buttons
  • oh, and photos of you!

Save your file to your computer, and depending on how many photos were included, and the size of your project, you may need to resize it (make it smaller) in Picnik.  I would upload it first to twitter, see what you think….and if you want to go back and edit.  Your project is always available in History in Picnik.

Need help uploading the object to twitter?

Login to your profile at twitter.com, click settings, design, and at the bottom, click “change background image”.  Browse until you find your collage, check the “tile background” box and hit save.

Not happy?  Change it around as much as you want, but sometimes new images don’t take.  I find it best to make sure your image is named something different each time you change it.

I’d love if you would send me a link if you make one for your background!  And be sure to tweet it to @picnik, I’m sure they will want to see too!
