If you’ve been on Twitter for a while, you’ve probably seen someone with an elaborate background that’s designed to work around the text elements of the Twitter layout. Maybe it’s got a photo and some contact information on the side, or maybe it just frames the main text field in some creative way. When you want to make your own, though, how do you work around the layout and get the spacing right? That’s where Free Twitter Designer comes in.

It’s a web-based image editor that lets you view the basic layout of a Twitter page transparently, so you can figure out where to position any photos or text you want to add. You can import photos into Free Twitter Designer, and add some predesigned shapes, shadow or blur effects to your design. The text tool has a handful of different fonts to choose from, and of course you can customize the colors. While I take issue with a site that claims to produce the same results as a professional designer — pay your designers well, guys! — it’s a simple way to get around some of the challenges of making a Twitter background.
