Flag facebook change

How to add any flag to your Facebook profile picture

How to add any flag on your profile picture. In any Photo software. Here i am adding the Afghanistan flag.

After the second disgusting terror attack in Paris, Facebook made a function, so you could change your profile picture, with a french flag to show your are sympathizing with the victims. Off course i too condemn that disgusting coward attack and i feel very sorry for the victims.

Facebook got a lot of critic for not making this function for other attacks, such as a suicide attack in Afghanistan. I think it’s a fair critritc, and other countries deserves a lot more media coverage and awareness.

I don’t think facebook value French people lives more than others, or intended to tell that some events is more important than others.

So today i will show how you can put a fan flag on any facebook profile picture, and therefore show awareness/support any event or group. I will use photoshop, but explain how you can do it with other programs as well.
You can’t use paint for this. But you can use paint.net

Written tutorial

First open up your image:

Next find the flag you want to use.  Open it up as well, and copy it.

In Photoshop you can press ctrl+a to select everything, then press ctrl+c to copy it.

Go back to your image, and paste the flag in.

Most probably, it doesn’t fit. So let’s resize the layer by going to edit –> transform –> scale.

Now we need to change to opacity. In other programs it might be called: Alpha, Visibility or mask. In photoshop it’s opacity, and you can change it on your layer panel.

Turn that down to 50%.

That’s how you can add a flag to your Facebook picture.
