Cover Photo

Recommended Posts

There's a feature called Cover Photo in your profile that only a handful of members are using so far. It allows you to insert an image as a background (max file size is 500kb). (It also displays when someone hovers over an avatar.) Note that the software will stretch any photo to fit the width of the window, but only a narrow section will be visible (you can only raise or lower it) so a long, narrow image or geometric pattern is ideal. I will be calling out the best (and worst [:b--]) cover photos so have fun with it!


Here's the image I used (my brother Matt's artwork):



This is what it looks like as a cover photo:



This is the popup (aka member card) you see when you hover over a member's avatar:

Best cover photo of the day goes to @Charlie. Careful with that a$$, Eugene!



Runner up is @Rod H for showing us his knobs, buttons, sliders and meters. Too much is just about right!

Here's a few more cover photos that IMHO are entertaining, on point, visually attractive and/or make good use of the space:


Jazzman53 showing off his handiwork. (If you haven't seen his awesome DIY speaker projects check out  Yet another project )



A great choice Dennis!



I'm pretty sure that's a wolf James, and he's glowing because he's been exposed to high levels of radiation :D 



Keep 'em coming folks!
