  2. How does this work on an iPad2? When I touch the screen the photo gets larger but it doesn’t reposition. Any suggestions?

    • Since timeline was rollout recently which may lead some incompatibility however it could be browser issue. I may suggest you to try Facebook timeline app on ipad.

  3. Max Size 850 x315 , You can also share with your reader about us , we create cover photos using friend profile picture.

  4. Can’t seem to drag and reposition on my Mac.  Any ideas?

    • @ea1ba34ae94ca9ed94893988ffc32744:disqus Drag & Reposition won’t work unless its 720 pixels wide & 315 pixel high. You can reposition or drag only if its greater than this.
