If you were a fan of Facebook profile videos, you must be disappointed. But there are always other ways to impress your friends and followers. Having a beautiful cover image is one way to go about it.
A Facebook cover photo is the large image that appears at the top of your profile. It is the first thing people see when they visit your Facebook page. This image can vary depending on the type and purpose of your profile.
If you use Facebook for personal reasons, this image can include anything that represents you. It can be a photo from your last holiday, a picture of your artwork or hobby, or even an abstract design. For business profiles it's best to display an image that showcases your company or products.
Creating a Facebook cover image is simple, especially with Glorify. Glorify is an easy-to-use design tool that is ideal for both beginners and professionals. A combination of simple and advanced tools allows anyone to create stunning visuals regardless of prior design experience.

Step 4: Once your image has been uploaded, you can click on the "Remove background" feature found on the right of your screen.
