How To Change Facebook Background With Your Own Picture


Valid until 31 January 2015 (unless noted)
How to change facebook background? It's fun to play with this popular social site but it's kind of boring if we faced the same default facebook background everyday. In the previous post about FB tips and tricks I already mentioned about how to change facebook layout and styles, actually the technique is almost the same, we still use the mozilla styler add-on, but now we will try to change the background with your own picture / wallpapers.

Ok, enough with the babbling, let's begin the tutorial about how to change facebook background.

1. First, make sure that your browser is Mozilla Firefox and you have installed the Styler Add-On.

2. Make sure you have installed and apply one of facebook layout/style. In this tutorial we'll use Facebook Windows 7 Black Edition.

3. Go to your facebook page

4. Find picture / wallpaper on your computer, and decide what picture you want to be used for your facebook background, and then open the image with your browser.
For example, here I choose a National Geographic Wallpaper and open it with my browser:

Take a look on the address bar, you'll see the picture's url (location address). As alternative, you can also put your picture in image hosting or your server.

5. Copy the picture's url

6. Now, back to your facebook page.

7. Open the "style manager". Click on the "S" symbol on the bottom right of your browser window - then choose "manage styles..."

8. Select "Facebook Windows 7 Black Edition" and then click "Edit"

9. Find the default background url, it would be something like this:
background: url("http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/3729/windows7qs.jpg") #000000 top left fixed no-repeat !important;

10. Change the default background URL (http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/3729/windows7qs.jpg) with your picture's URL (ie. file:///F:/Wallpaper/NatGeo%20Wallpaper1.jpg).

11. To make the wallpaper fit in your browser window, make sure you change the image alignment, top with center, and left with center

So, after you changed the style, the result will be like this :
background: url("file:///F:/Wallpaper/NatGeo%20Wallpaper1.jpg") #000000 center center fixed no-repeat !important;
