Step 5 : In the next window under Make this visible to select the option Only Me.

By choosing "Only Me" you’re specifying that only you can see the photo row on your facebook profile, while the rest of the world won’t see it at all, unless you specify certain people in step5 above to see them.

The photo steam is great way to show your life activity on facebook and some people have found ways to use it creatively by displaying a profile banner using tagged photos.

Tip : In case, if you want to know how your facebook profile looks to a certain friend (to check if hiding a relationship status from your ex, or showing status to selected friends is working or not) then go to the Customize settings page [step 3 above] and look for the button [Preview My Profile] at the top right.

Click it and add + select name of the person to see how your profile looks to him/her. (see above)

I hope this trick of hiding the facebook photo strip on your profile will help you and sometimes even save from embarrassment from being tagged on some really offensive picture etc. Let us know in comments if you faced any situation like this.
