At the top of your Facebook profile, you'll see the five most recent pictures containing a picture of you. You can use this section of your profile to make a more unique and original profile picture by extending the main profile picture into these recent pictures. As can be seen in the picture to the right, this profile takes a larger image and spreads it from the profile picture into the recent pictures across the top.
This can be accomplished using the free Pic Scatter online tool. With this tool, you can upload any picture and adjust the picture to be shown in the profile section, the top five images, and even the wall.
Notice When using this technique any time you or a friend tags you in a photo it will be posted in the top section of your profile ruining this effect. To keep this effect, hide any new photo by clicking the x that appears when hovering the mouse in the top right-corner of the picture.
