I was messing about on the iPad last night creating a new avatar for 2013 and wanted to also update my twitter header image. This is what I did:
- Found seven squared instagram images that related to me or my interests and saved them to the camera roll
- Added each image to a new iPad album with the name of “.”
- Screen grabbed the album screen using the home button and power button
- Uploaded the screen grab using the twitter app
That’s it! simple but effective don’t you think? I like the way the ‘real’ twitter avatar slots nicely over the others giving a carousel effect (a bit of a fluke really). You could also set your iPad to a different time or edit the screen grab in an app to remove any of the iPad display information.
Here’s a screen grab using my past avatars which could be good for someone who likes to change their avatars often and confuse people 😉 …
Let me know if you use this method and I’ll post some screengrabs:
