For those of you who have google+ style and want to spice up their profile – I don't understand why google doesn't let you pick what part of the new banner becomes your profile picture, but until they do, here is the workaround.

Profile Picture template, Second Attempt

Edit: It seems I have made a mistake. The minimum size for uploading a background photo is actually 940px width. It seems that the last 40 px. are hidden on the right. I have changed the template below to reflect this. Sorry to all the people who I misinformed 🙁

By accident I have also deleted the original post, so here it is again.

I made this quick little template to make it easier to have some fun with the new profile pictures. Using this, it should be fairly easy to line up any images, to make a unified banner for your profile page.

Note that pictures that line up with this method, will be slightly off when viewed in the hovercard as the profile picture is placed a bit higher in relation to the background.

Feel free to use and share this as you like 🙂

Edit 2: You can use an animated GIF for the background picture, like with the small scrapbook photos, and the animation will even work on the hovercard.
