Is it possible to remove the profile cover once you've set one?
Basically, have it revert to the initial "default" one of that particular account.

That said, there is a gallery of generic images one can also use for the cover. – Al E. Sep 11 '12 at 13:15
Thank you, Al. I thought about doing that, but it seems some get different colours of the same cover above. – Francisc Sep 12 '12 at 19:32

Remove the cover from Picasa web albums. It will set the cover to "some" default.

Same can be done with Profile picture.
