Once you've been accepted for this highly selective program, you need to make sure the whole world knows! One way to do that is to add an acceptance banner as your Facebook cover photo.
You could go with the classic cover photo, shown above, or make your own in 5 minutes with your own photos and Microsoft Word! Start by finding a photo you'd like to use, either from your own photos or by searching google for a photo you like.
Open Microsoft Word, and start by turning the page to landscape orientation, since the default is portrait. You can do this by clicking the layout tab up top and then clicking orientation (both are circled in the image above).
Next, go to the insert tab and select your photo to insert. You can also copy and paste your photo if you prefer.
Next, click the photo and go to the format tab. Click the "wrap text" tab and select "behind text" from the drop down menu. Then, adjust the photo so it fills the entire width of the page (there will probably be some extra white space on the bottom of the page).
Find your way back to the "insert" tab to insert another photo. Select the text overlay (Download it below) as the photo you would like to insert.
Find your way back to the "Format" and "wrap text" tabs, this time select "in front of text" from the drop down menu. Adjust the image so the words appear the way you'd like them on your photo.
Once everything looks the way you like, find the "view" tab and select "read mode" to see the whole image on your screen.
If the image seems too small, zoom in with the slider in the bottom right corner, it won't let you zoom in too much. Next find a the "snipping too" on your computer. It comes standard on most PCs running Windows, you can use any application or function that lets you take a screenshot though. Then just take a screenshot of the image, I like this program because it allows you to only choose a specified area to screenshot, if your program requires you to capture the whole page, just crop it to only include the image.
Viola! Now just upload it to your Facebook page or Instagram, or use it as the banner on your DCP blog, you could even use it as your computer wallpaper! Questions? Comment below, find me on social media, or contact me on the "about me" tab.
