In this post, I’m going to show you how I “hacked” my photo album to get the following result. See it on Facebook here, or check out the screenshot:
It’s actually not hard at all with the Photoshop template, so if you’re ready go ahead and download it now…
All you need to do to use the template file is to fire up your copy of Photoshop, drop your own picture beneath the layer called “grid,” then choose “Save for Web” and select all the thumbnail sized slices that your picture fills up. I made the template extra long, so that you could put wide-angle portrait pictures in there, just the same as landscape. Be careful to position your picture so that it completely fills the top and bottom row of thumbnails that you’re going to use. You can turn on the Guides, show the layer “grid,” or show the slices as aids in getting your picture positioned just the way you want it.
Don’t rename the pictures once they are saved. Photoshop will auto-number them in the order that you want Facebook to upload, so if you just leave them named the way that they are, everything should just work.
Once you have all these pictures saved into a folder, upload them all to a new album on Facebook.
Now all that’s left is staring at your monitor, waiting for people to comment. But I guess that’s the fun part…right?
