Tutorial : How I create my banner

Hello fellow bloggers. Like I've promised, I’m going to show you guys a step-by-step guide on how to do my blog banner. 
I’m going to show you how to achieve this banner I have down here. Photoshop required.

First, select a picture of your choice. I’m going to use mine here.

Next, click on the LAYER button.
Then, hold down CTRL+J.
“Layer 1” will appear.


After that, at the bottom (3) click on that.
“Layer 2” will appear


Now, click on EDIT > FILL
A small box will appear (6)
usually set to default:

 Use: White
mode: Normal
capacity: 100%
Click OK
“layer 2” is now filled with white.


Drag “layer 2” between “layer 1” and “Background”


Clicking back on “layer 1”, using the writing tool (8) , write your desired phrase. You’ll notice a “layer 3” when you write.


After you’ve finished, drag “layer 3” between “layer 1” and “layer 2”


Almost done, click back on “layer 1”
Go to LAYER > CREATE CLIPPING MASK


Voila! You have your own banner!


I’d usually put 900x250 for my banners. You can always crop and resize them.
Ohh and put pretty things to go with your theme.

Do me a favour and comment if you find this useful or tick (/) on the heart box below here
