How to make a custom feedback-loop effect for your Facebook Timeline Cover

Tonight, as I was wasting precious time on Facebook, I had an idea to make a really neat feedback-loop effect for my timeline cover image. I thought it would be nice to post a quick article about how to make similar effects for your timeline. You will need Windows built in screen capture tool, or a similar screen capture program.

1. I took a screen capture of my current Facebook timeline. I made sure to memorize the exact area I had cropped, and saved the image as fb1.png.

2. I uploaded fb1.png as my new timeline photo and shifted the image up and to the right, so that it begins to make a tunneling or mirrored feedback effect.

3. Next, I took a second screen capture using the same cropping as before, Saving the file as fb2.png.

3. I repeated the above steps several times, until I had achieved an interesting feedback effect.

1. Can't move the image left or right? You may need to take a wider screen capture.
To achieve this you may need to increase your monitor resolution to a larger size. (i.e" 1440 x 900 or larger)

2. Don't have Windows 7 or a snipping tool? You can use this free screen snipping tool: or search google for "free screen snipping tool"
