Hope you’re having a fabulous Monday.
Over the weekend I was asked by email if I would write a post about creating banners since I spoke about not having a crappy one in this post.
She wanted me to show the most basic and easiest way to make a banner for your blog without using photoshop. Keep in mind that I am not a graphic designer. I’m just showing you what has worked for me in the past.
The easiest way that I can think of is PicMonkey which I spoke about a bit here so let’s get started.
For the first logo example which is just plain text you will want to go to picmonkey.com and click on Design as shown below. You will want to choose the Facebook cover option.
Next you’ll come to this screen which will ask you to choose your canvas cover. I usually choose transparent so that the color doesn’t clash with the background but feel free to choose whatever you want. I do recommend transparent.
I usually center mine and drag the box to the full vertical length of the transparent rectangle so that it’s centered correctly.
After you have the pictures you want you will click edit.
Save and add to your blog.
