Creating Channel Art for Awesome Tube 2

on October 26, 2013

This week I worked with my son to post videos to his YouTube channel.  He was very excited when someone subscribed to his channel.

Once I figured out a routine to upload videos to YouTube the process became less frustrating.  Creating the channel art for the YouTube channel was a challenge.  The YouTube help page provided some support.  Channel art is the banner on your YouTube page.  My son wanted a red background with a title in white font.  That seemed easy enough.  We created a page in word and printed it out, took a picture and tried uploading it.  This method didn’t work because I could not get the picture to be the correct size.   aawesome tube

Then I signed up for Custom Design page that was recommended on a YouTube video I watched.  I had trouble being able to modify the designs.  I watched another YouTuvbe video which suggested that you use paint to create the channel art.

Attempt one after watching this video created this banner.  Benja1  The banner was not the right size.

Attempt number two with a lot of help from my husband created this  aaaaa channel art that was the right size and looks wonderful.

I am wondering if anyone else has experience with creating Channel Art and if you have found an easier method?
