How to Create a New Channel Banner for YouTube Using PowerPoint 2010 (with video)

YouTube has made more design changes, eliminating the background and replacing it with a banner. Now, no matter which device someone views your channel on, they’ll see a consistent design that works. I used my favorite software, PowerPoint, to create the new banner.

YouTube has a requirement that your artwork has to be 2120 pixels wide and 1192 pixels tall. You’ll receive an error if it’s too small. PowerPoint doesn’t size in pixels, so I had to convert these measurements to inches (AuctionRepair.com/pixels.html is the site I used). The pixels converted to 22.08 inches wide and 12.42 inches in height, using the 96 flat panel display option. This ended up being a perfect fit.

Here’s a how-to video I just recorded to show you how to use PowerPoint to create your new banner and how to upload it to your YouTube channel.

Let me know how yours turns out. Leave a link in comments.

PEACE.
