Tutorial: Make a Customized Google Plus Profile Page

Filed Under: Tech/Videos/Video Games

If you’re one of the millions of folks using Google + right now, you’re well-acquainted with users’ profile pages. If you’re not on Google + yet, the profile page [or whatever it’s technically called] looks a lot like Facebook in that there is a profile picture on the left and then a row of images moving to the right.

Since Facebook and Google +’s profile pages struck me as so similar with regards to the images, I decided to customize my profile page like I did a while back on Facebook. This is easy. Promise.

This is what mine looks like:

I’m writing this assuming you have Photoshop since that’s what I used. If you don’t have Photoshop, I don’t know what to suggest since that’s what I use…I feel like I’m talking in a circle. Gimp, maybe? Can it slice images? Maybe someone can suggest an alternative to Photoshop in the comments?

The five images on the right were actually created out of one big image that I then sliced into five images.

This video will show exactly how to accomplish what I have on my Google Plus profile. If you have any questions, let me know!

And I even have the template for you! Yay! Download the .psd here!
