Fresh reports claim that Google+ has already 20 million users. So, you would want to look cool and creative for all those people. Here’s how you can tune your profile a bit:

(UPDATE: this also works for Google+ pages for brands). Read How to Create a Google+ Page for Your Brand.

  1. Select or create a picture that is 685 pixels wide
  2. Slice it into five 125 by 125 pixel pieces
  3. The space between pieces is 15 pixels
  4. Save each piece as a separate file
  5. Upload the pictures to your profile in the order you want then to appear (use edit profile for that)

And you are done!

    I discovered that each picture you use has to be exactly 150×150 pixels or it doesn’t work right.
