7 Steps to make the Reface Effect on your new FB profile page

Time it’ll take: 15min to 30min
What you’ll need:

  1. Adobe Photoshop or any similar program (Gimp is a free alternative)
  2. Screen capture program (windows7 comes with one called Snipping tools)
  3. A facebook Account with the “New Profile Page” enabled
  4. A good profile photo (preferrably sideways)

Step 1:

First you need to take a screenshot of your Facebook profile page. You can do this using the Windows7 Snipplet Tool or simply pressing the “Print Screen” button on the top right of your keyboard.

Step 2:

Open that image in Photoshop (or gimp). If you used the Print screen button, then create a blank page and press Ctrl+V to paste the screen you have copied in your clipboard.


Step 3:

Cut out the 5 small images and your profile picture from the main image. The more precise the better. I did this one with my son sleeping on my left arm so it’s a little rough.


Step 4:

Erase the 6 layers with the images that where cut out. Now cone the fun part! Import your cool picture that you want to use and put it under the main facebook layer. This is how it will look once you’re done. 🙂


I added some text to make it more fun.


Step 5:

Now us the canva tool and select individually each of the 6 images, saving an image file each time. It will be easier later if you name the images like I did. Main, 1,2,3,4, and 5.

You should have something like this in your image folder


Step 6:

We’re almost done.
Now make an album in your facebook page and add the 5 small images. Now start tagging each photo ONE BY ONE and in the order 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 4.jpg, 5.jpg. You can also add the caption text “Look at my profile and you’ll understand”, avoiding comments like “WTF?! What is this photo?”



Step 7:

Now the final step is to change your profile picture with the main.jpg image. You’re Done! Now just wait and see all the comments coming to your profile page. If you puta status like “Look at what I did to my profile page” people will start liking and commenting your status in one place.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Your “Refaced” profile page will only last until someone tags you in a photo. If you want to maintain your profile page Refaced as it is, you’ll have to either delete,  upload and tag the Reface photos again or untag yourself from the newest photos. So, you can also take a screenshot of your final Refaced profile page too.
