Create Facebook cover photo from your HTC phone

HTC provides a nifty option to crop the photos in dimension specified for Facebook cover photos i.e. 851×315.

  1. Open the picture that needs to be cropped from your Gallery.
  2. Tap on “Edit” and then tap on “Transform”.
  3. Select “Crop” option.
  4. Now tap on the overflow icon (three vertical dots) and select “Facebook cover”.
  5. The cropping tool will now resize in proportionate to the dimensions specified for Facebook cover photo.
This option is present on my HTC One X running on Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 and I am guessing here that it should be present in other HTC phones with Sense 5. If it doesn't then let me know in comments.
