This free deviantART Journal Skin allows you to easily add a "cover photo" to any Journal. You can use any deviation as a cover photo, or you can upload your own.
Adding a Cover Photo:
The process is somewhat simple, but takes some very basic HTML knowledge.1. Add an image to the beginning of a Journal.
For best results, use a higher-resolution horizontal cover image. 2. Click Edit > Switch to HTML Mode
You will now see some code that uses the format . This is deviantART's markup to display deviations. 3. Wrap this code within a <div class="cover"> tag:
Important: The top edge of the image will be aligned with the top of the header of the Journal and the bottom image will be cropped out as the browser resizes. If you'd like to reverse it so that the bottom of the image is aligned with the bottom of the header, use the code <
4. Your Journal now has a cover image!
UPDATE: Thanks to Ikue
for providing code that automatically adds a link the deviation used as the cover. Thanks to mathew-s-hanley for letting me use his photos (the first two on the right side of the image)
