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.

There is no option to remove it. You can re upload the original photo


Here it is before


And After


The photo realigns perfectly

    That said, there is a gallery of generic images one can also use for the cover.

  • Thank you, Al. I thought about doing that, but it seems some get different colours of the same cover above.

Go the album archive and delete the required photo.

There are options to remove the profile photo but no option is available for the cover photo. So you have to remove it that way.


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

Same can be done with Profile picture.
