    Your link isn't working?
    On this topic though, I think everyone needs a cover image just because we're so used to seeing them now, if a page doesn't have one, it looks incomplete. So far I've just used one of the background images from my site as the cover image to maintain branding but I have to say, I'm not too taken with it. I'm going to try to get another one.
    The rules are that the image must be very high quality and a visual representation of what I do - don't forget you can put words on there too. It's your chance to make a great first impression to new visitors. I think it's easy to get sucked into being too 'clever' with this space - as with all design, simple and high quality will get the best results. These are the dimensions:

    I like the font selection and colours, but I think the image of your work is actually a little bit like "OOOH, what am I looking at?" Information overload maybe?

    You're not allowed to add a call to action on your banner.
    The Facebook cover photo is not a common image size, and the rectangular composition includes a cut-out for your profile icon in the lower left corner.

    I was laughing at the header image posted by Janifar.

    That was a joke, wasn't it?

    Or to my dad's generation, "lots of love"
    "The dog died. Lol, dad xx"
  16. Haha, did that actually happen? I want to know why Janifar wants people to send her mono-sodium glutamate!
