How do I make my facebook cover photo visually appealing?

The Facebook cover photo is an essential part of your page's branding. This is the first thing people see when they land on your page and it helps you tell others more about you or your business. I recommend using a single, unified image that captures the essence of your brand. It should be visually appealing, have high visual quality, and only have small amounts of text.

If you want to find high quality images I recommend the free resource Unsplash. This site is one of the biggest resources of free images on the internet. All images are high quality and are handpicked by their staff.

When putting text on your images make sure to use good fonts that are easy to read. Some that never go out of style is Helvetica, Lato and Roboto. You can download these fonts from Google Fonts where you will also be able to find hundreds of other fonts. All fonts are free and are easy to install on your computer.

Finally make sure your cover image stands out with a stunning and compelling design that grabs users' attention and inspires them to become fans of your page. Below is a cool cover photo design from Adobe where they use a pattern to make it visually appealing.
