New University Branding: How to Update Your Social Media Profile Pictures

With the new University branding came some confusion as to how those of us utilizing social media should update our Facebook or Twitter profile pictures to reflect the new logo… or if it was even possible. The University branding site now includes social media button and logo templates for you to download and use in order to update your pictures. (You’ll need to download the “Digital/Web” interactive assets). The only catch: you need to have a recent version of Adobe Photoshop Elements or Adobe Photoshop installed on your computer to pull up the images and edit them therein.

If you don’t have Photoshop, you have a couple options:

1. You can order Photoshop Elements 11 for less than $100 through Wired Out or  E-Stores. You’ll receive it as a digital download, meaning you won’t have to wait for a physical disc to arrive before you can start using it. Easy-peasy.

2. You may be able to have a colleague who does have Photoshop edit the logo for you, save as a JPEG, GIF or TIFF file, and e-mail it to you. If they’re Photoshop savvy, this shouldn’t take more than a few minutes as long as you know what changes you want them to make.

(If you didn’t catch the linked text above that takes you to the template site – here it is: )
