    Many times I have a picture to put on Facebook as my "cover" picture, but find I can't drag to get the entire picture in, so I have to cancel. Is there any software out there that can keep my aspect ratio and make the size of the cover picture on face book so I can entire picture in and away from my profile picture? I wild I could make my profile picture smaller also, but I think facebook controls that. Thanks.

    You could use Irfanview to resize the image and change the canvas size.
    The Cover photo is different than the Profile picture.
    I use a cover photo of 960x320 pixels and a profile picture of 300x300 pixels.
    I'd use Photoshop where it's really easy ... (cause I'm more familiar with it) ...
    can you get me the pictures ???

    I made a paper size on my software to bring in the jpeg, and then I resized the image. Looks like it is working now, thanks for all your information on this.
