How to make a tarpaulin layout

Updated March 23, 2017

Tarpaulin layouts are part of Internet social networking sites like MySpace. They are the background image placed on the personal pages. When there are no layouts available for download that fit your personal preferences, one option is to make your own layout. Making the layout allows the use of personal photos or pictures and adjusting images to preferred styles.

Open a web browser and go to, which will allow you to make personal layouts without downloading software or any complications.

Go down the page to the section that says "Don't Like Any "tarpaulin layout" Layout?" It is a light grey box at the bottom of the page.

Select either "Search" or "Upload" from the options. Searching will allow the use of online search engines for image searching. Uploading will browse a personal computer for images instead. If browsing, select the "Browse" button and open the preferred file before pressing "Start."

Pick a style for the image. The tarpaulin layout has a few different block styles available to choose from. Pick your preferred block style.

Send it to the networking site and update the profile. Once the tarpaulin layout is finished, the website will allow direct updating.
