Slicetige-T can help you create a slick Twitter profile

Yaara Lancet | Jan. 18, 2013
Slicetige-T is a basic graphics tool made specifically for the new Twitter cover images. With a bit of patience, it can help anyone create a beautiful cover for Twitter.

In order to make full use of Slicetige, you need a basic understanding of the concept of layers. Each feature, image or text you add is a layer in itself, and you can switch between these layers using the right-side menu. From there, you can choose which layers are visible, delete layers and change their opacity. To move a layer inside the template, click that layer, hit your Ctrl key and move the layer with your left mouse button. When done, you can export your cover image and your avatar, and load them to your Twitter profile.

All in all, Slicetige-T is a nice effort, but it's far from being a complete project. The general idea is there, but the execution is lacking, as if the developers had some great ideas but didn't really follow them through to the end. The lack of a simple "undo" option, for example, turns the creation process into a somewhat frustrating ordeal. With that in mind, Slicetige-T is still a rather simple tool for creating Twitter covers, and when putting in the extra minutes, can yield some very nice results.
