“Don’t judge a book by its cover.”
This is definitely not true for ‘Face’ book. Here first impressions are the last impressions.
It doesn’t matter whether you have a business page or a profile account- cover photo is the first thing that viewers see when they visit your page. You have a great chance pulling in a lot of ‘Follows’ or ‘Likes’ if your cover photo is something that others just can’t take their eyes off.
But that is easier said than done. What if you don’t have any image to support your idea? What if you need to design a picture quote or a collage for your cover photo? You’ll probably need Photoshop or some other design tool to do that. However, not all are a pro at these design softwares.
Have you tried good old PowerPoint, the most user-friendly tool to create breathtaking slideshows? In just a few clicks, you can add images, text, symbols, shapes, SmartArts and awesome effects to create professional looking slides. And now, irresistible cover photos too!

Here are some ideas to make the first impression, the best impression, with your cover photo.
Types of cover photos you can create in PowerPoint:
- Create a picture quote: Place your favorite quote on an image or a textured background in PowerPoint, apply some cool text or image effects and you’ll have the cover photo you wanted.
- Create a picture collage: A personal collage capturing the most special moments or a professional collage showing people running your organization is heart-warming and endearing to all. It’s a great cover photo idea as well, one you can easily create in PowerPoint.
- Create a special greeting: Wish your fans a merry christmas or happy new year. Write down your special message in the PowerPoint slide, spice it up with festival colors and use it as your cover photo.
- Highlight a new feature or an achievement: Cover photo is ideal space for businesses to inform their customers of a new feature, an update or an achievement (say the first 1,000 likes). Announce this in style with 3D effects, attractive fonts and images via PowerPoint.
