If you’ve been following the Facebook profile action, there’s now 8 more ways to easily create a unique Facebook profile page. No Photoshop or GIMP required! So, here’s the roundup!
Description: The Facebook Full Page Pic Generator allows you to upload an image and download the resulting image slices in a single click. However, it doesn’t seem to account for the biography on the top of the page and therefore may not output the right format. It takes a decent amount of trial and error to get right. It also requires manually uploading the images to Facebook unlike some of the other options.
Ease of Use: 4/10
2. Pic Scatter
Description: Pic Scatter allows you to upload an image, adjust the size, and works with biography line adjustments. It gives the option to download the image slices OR publish straight to Facebook after you allow access. The only downfall is the watermark printed on the main picture that says ‘made with picScatter.com’. If you don’t mind that, this is a great application.
Ease of Use: 9/10
Description: Pimp My Profile is a Facebook Application. Once you give it permission, it’ll give the option to create wall art for yourself OR a friend. You can then upload a picture and adjust its placement. After pressing ‘done’, it’ll auto upload and tag your images for you. It also has a tutorial video in case you’re stuck. Chances are, you won’t need it though.
Ease of Use: 9/10
Description: Profile Photos Bar is another Facebook application. It has the option to upload your own image or select from various images (music artists, animals, landscapes, etc). It’s a bit hard to follow and the buttons aren’t the most intuitive, but it works well. It only works with a 1 or 2 line biography which could be a problem for some. Once completed, it’ll auto upload and tag your images for you.
Ease of Use: 7/10
Description: Beauty Profile is a Facebook Application. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get it to load and therefore can’t describe it. Maybe you’ll have better luck!
Ease of Use: 0/10
Description: Awesome Profile is pretty awesome (pun intended). It’s elegant and easy to use. Upload an image, select your biography length and it’ll do the rest.
Ease of Use: 10/10
7. Profile Art
Description: Profile Art is a Facebook Application. It’s pretty simple and much like the other Facebook applications. Instead of moving the picture though, you move the profile window. It’s not quite as intuitive, but it works. I couldn’t tell if it works on multiple biography lengths, but it appears to.
Ease of Use: 8/10
Description: FB Photo Magic lets you create a Facebook Profile or Photo Gallery. It works well, but doesn’t have all the options. It requires uploading a large resolution image so that your final image looks good, but some users may not like this as you can’t enlarge an image – only make it smaller. Instead of moving the image placement, you move the window similar to Profile Art. This isn’t quite as intuitive as moving the image. Once completed, you need to manually save the images and upload them to your Facebook account. This takes a bit of time. It also doesn’t appear to have options for various biography lengths.
Ease of Use: 7/10
Depending on your needs, you may find each one of these to be great. None of them really stuck out more than the rest. I did like Pic Scatter, however the watermark is a ‘deal breaker’ for me. The Facebook Full Page Pic Generator and FB Photo Magic were manual upload options and therefore are tougher to use. The rest have automatic upload and tagging features which will speed up the process and give higher accuracy allowing more time to be creative.
