Project #5: Make a Twitter Background (Photoshop CS5)

I recently caved and got Twitter so I decided to make a customized background with Photoshop; It was not as easy as I thought it would be!  The biggest challenge that I faced was getting the image size right… I found plenty of tutorials online however, none of them seemed to have the right proportion guidelines. I played around for about an hour and here is the size I used:

33.86w x 15.57h in centimeters

I changed my resolution to 50 lines/inch (to change go to Image -> Image Size -> Auto)

My design is pretty simple as I found the frilly ones did not look as good.
