3. If the image is big enough, it will successfully upload as your new cover photo. To save,  select “Save cover photo” in the top right hand corner.

If you decide you want to change your photo, simply select “Change photo” to upload a new one.


Troubleshoot: if you receive an error message to try again, it might mean that you need to find a bigger photo that’s 1440px wide or change the file type so that your image is either a jpeg, gif or png.
