    Learn how to create a beautiful Facebook cover photo with this simple Photoshop tutorial.


    I will show you how to create a beautiful facebook photocover with
    this simple step by step tutorial. This is for beginner and with an
    average time of 20 - 40 mins of creating.



    Before you start, download first the things that we will use for this tutorial:


    Font: Choppin Script

    Brushes: Floral Circle 1

    Floral Brush


    Of course Photoshop also (I've used CS3 in this tutorial)



    Let's start by creating a canvas with 850 x 313 px and 100 resolution.

    [​IMG]



    Create a new layer (Ctrl+Shift+N) and fill it (Alt+Backspace) with color c2c4d0.



    Next is open your image then place it on the right part of canvas.

    [​IMG]



    Resize it (Ctrl+T) until you are satisfied



    [​IMG]


    Using the eraser tool, erase the side part of the image to get this outcome:



    [​IMG]



    Duplicate the image by pressing Ctrl+J



    [​IMG]


    Click the Smudge Tool

    [​IMG]



    Select the 63px and set the hardness to 75%


    [​IMG]



    Click the brush settings


    [​IMG]


    Check the Shape Dynamics and Smoothing

    [​IMG]


    Smudge the side part of the image

    [​IMG]




    Go to brush and load the Floral Circle 1

    [​IMG]



    Select the second brush (421)

    [​IMG]




    Create a new layer above image and name it "Floral 1" then use the brush

    [​IMG]




    Re size the layer then erase some parts of it


    [​IMG]



    Now select 9th brush (561)

    [​IMG]


    Create a new layer (Floral 2) below the image then use the brush, resize then rotate to get this outcome

    [​IMG]



    Select the first brush (544) then create the third layer (Floral 3) and place it on the right side

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Load another brush (Floral Brush by Jaaaiiro) then select the second one



    [​IMG]





    Again create a new layer (Floral 4) then repeat the steps above



    [​IMG]



    These will be the arrangement of the layers

    [​IMG]



    Create a new layer above image copy then by using brush tool (white), brush the left part of the image to lighten it.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]




    Now we will add curves, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves



    Follow these setting below for the Blue, Green, and Red settings then click OK



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Were almost done, next is create a new layer.



    Go to Filter > Render > Lighting Effects and follow the settings below then click Ok

    [​IMG]


    Go to Filter > Sharpen > Smart Sharpen and follow the settings below then click Ok

    [​IMG]



    Click the white box beside Smart Filters label, then by using brush
    (color black) with hardness of 50% and flow of 50%, brush the dark part.


    [​IMG]



    Then you will have something like this

    [​IMG]



    Now for the last step, add some text by using Chopin Script font that you've downloaded earlier and that's it.
