Four Steps To Make An Easy YouTube Banner picture

Four Steps To Make An Easy YouTube Banner

The amount of steps involved for making a YouTube Banner is dependent on how much the any particular person wants out of their YouTube Banner. It can be as simple as four steps!

Step 1) Upload your chosen image to iPiccy.
Step 2) The optimal picture size is 2560 x 1440, so if you have bigger than 2560 x 1440, select that size as your cropping dimensions.
Step 3) Move the highlighted area to the section you want to keep, and crop the rest out.
Step 4) Save! You're done.

Adding Extra To Your YouTube Banner

If you decide you want to add text or something of that nature we have to add an extra step before "Step 4". Should you decide you want to add things like effects, text, or even maybe a frame it would happen before "Step 4".

For Adding Text
You open up the "Blender Tab" which is the fourth tab at the top, once you've done this you click on the text icon. From there you simply put in whatever text you may want on your YouTube Banner (I'd recommend your channel name), and then select a font. I suggest typing your text before your font, and this way you'll see the font change with your text as you scroll through them. After you've finished picking font and text, simply move it where ever you want by clicking the text and moving it.

Your YouTube Thumbnail Is Just As Important picture

Your YouTube Thumbnail Is Just As Important

While your YouTube Banner will likely gather most of the attention when people visit your channel, the secondary thing people will see and the thing they will see when you comment on other videos is your YouTube Thumbnail! So who is going to want to see your page if it's a blank default picture, a random body part, or just altogether uninteresting? So let's talk about how you can also make a proper YouTube Thumbnail.

Step 1) Upload your chosen image to iPiccy.
Step 2) We have the optimal size listed as "YouTube Thumbnail" in our cropping list.
Step 3) Move the highlighted area to the section you want to keep, and crop the rest out.
Step 4) Save! You're done.

Potentially you could add text, frames, and effects, but I would not recommend it as the YouTube Thumbnail is fairly small and you should probably leave all of that stuff for your YouTube Banner instead.

Make It Even Better

For Adding Photo Effects
This is a very simple process of just clicking the second tab "Photo Effects" and from there picking what photo effect you want to use on your cover photo.

For Adding Frames
Another simple step of just clicking on the 6th tab and then selecting your chosen frame to accent your YouTube Banner.
