Page cover

The cover will be changed based on special events; celebrations, National Days, Birthdays & anniversaries of famous People preferably Pakistanis, or it'll feature something related to Pakistan or Pakistani Culture.

Secondly, I'll be needing one or two volunteers too

Members can make requests for special covers on specific dates. We'll try our best to make them happen. I started with a picture from my convocation, hope you guys won't mind.

You can send pictures on following email id:

message 15: by Narjis (new)

Narjis Naqvi | 713 comments This topic seems dead but where ever I see something related to pics and designing, can't stop myself.
And this was really a good idea, now group has same cover all the time. :(


message 16: by Muhammad (new)

Muhammad Ahsen Tahiri (ahsentahiri) | 201 comments I was thinking too about the same-cover-all-the-time thing here. It should be dynamic.


message 17: by Narjis (new)

Narjis Naqvi | 713 comments I'll love to design cover for group if this topic breathes again.:P


message 18: by Muhammad (new)

Muhammad Ahsen Tahiri (ahsentahiri) | 201 comments Well hope for best till the mod-sauruses defossilize again.


message 19: by Faheem (new)

Faheem  (faheeem) | 1596 comments Mod
It used to be dynamic. Last time it was changed. Then I got a little busy n kind of forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me. I"ll make a new one over the weekend.

It is changed on important days; national holidays, anniversaries of famous people preferably Pakistanis. Or on request of members.


message 20: by Faheem (new)

Faheem  (faheeem) | 1596 comments Mod
If someone could help with preparing the list of anniversaries or providing pics, that would be really great. :)


message 21: by Maira (new)

Maira | 5852 comments Mod
I tried to change it but went horribly wrong so I stopped with my pathetic attempts. :D I can provide the pictures and necessary data but the designing and editing someone else had to do it.


message 22: by Muhammad (new)

Muhammad Ahsen Tahiri (ahsentahiri) | 201 comments Well why not Narjis then mods?


message 23: by Faheem (last edited May 20, 2015 11:34AM) (new)

Faheem  (faheeem) | 1596 comments Mod
@maira, sure just send me the pictures and related materials, i can do it.

Editing takes time, but finding a suitable picture for the cover is much more time consuming. so some times even though i want to change the cover photo for an occasion, I couldn't because I am busy with something else. But if i have the picture, then i can takecare of editing.

if Narjis wana volunteer, she is most welcome, it'll divide the work load. :)


message 24: by Faheem (new)

Faheem  (faheeem) | 1596 comments Mod
I just got another idea, why don't we prepare a list of anniversaries, important events, other such important dates. This way we can prepare the covers before had and share it with @maria & @zenab, so all that we'll have to do is simply upload the cover on the respective date. What say you guys ?


message 25: by Maira (new)

Maira | 5852 comments Mod
I agree with u on that faheem. I will email u the picture and the details with it.

Oops, "he" is the wrong word here, I'm not a guy :(

After reading all discussion above, I can offer help in finding and editing pics. I'm graphic designer, I make and edit pics all the time, so I'll like to make covers according to dates or, without dates just for change, I mean whenever needed

Making page cover takes times. currently we have only two volunteers for graphics work and sometimes they are not available so we use something simple. Also we don't have an upcoming event in our calendar. I have added the list in the first comment. You can help us expand the list. :)
