How To Create Your Own Banner

This page will talk about how to create your own banner, and how to give it to people. I hope it’s informative and helpful.

Creating The Image

Believe it or not, creating the image isn’t even half of the entire process. To create an image, you can use an image making software, or online software. Photobucket is an online image uploading website. Not many people know it actually has software to edit images also. I prefer making an image using Photobucket because it includes many different fonts and stickers. If you want to use Photobucket, you’ll need to create an account. Once you’re done creating your account, find the uploading box, and click “Web URL”

After that, I want you to put


in the first blank, and click upload.

Once that’s done, it should bring you here:

Click edit, and you will be open to a huge editing software.

You can pretty much do anything. Here are some main buttons you should get familiar with.

  • Add Text: decorate> text.
  • Stickers: decorate> stickers
  • Crop: basic> crop
  • Resize: basic> resize (you can only make the image smaller, you can’t enlarge the image.)

When you’re done putting stickers, text, and effects, make sure to crop the image.

Once that’s done, click Crop Selected Area, and then Save a Copy.

Getting and Giving the HTML Code

After that, you’re going to need to copy the Direct Link.

Once that link is on your clipboard and copied, you’re ready to compile the HTML. The HTML code is what people can paste into their sidebar. The HTML code is as follows:

When you give that code to others, make sure you don’t give it on a WordPress page. If you do that, it won’t work, the quotation marks get mixed around. If you’ve ever noticed, our banners are on a Google Page. Google Pages are probably the best way of giving the HTML, it works really well, and looks good. To create a Google Page, click here.

Note: The above HTML code is an image, not text. I made it that way because it won’t work if you copy and paste it. You need to copy that down without using paste. And of course, make sure to put the correct URLs into the places that say so. If you used this guide to make and spread banners, it would be a kind move to give credit or thanks.

  1. Hmm… It will be pretty helpful! Thanks! 😀

  2. it wont work for me

  3. Hmm… PhotoBucket,eh? I have never used it before,not old enough.

    Sssaam: Guess what? This just happens to be the 3000th comment! Congrats!

  4. I did mine on paint 😛
    See pixelartwork.wordpress.com!
    🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. That’s really helpful! I use a similar software called Tinypic, and for that you don’t need to create an account. From there I just crop the images on Paint, save it, and put the HTML code into a text box. But your way is much easier, I’ll give it a go. 😀

  6. Brry3321, You do know probably HALF the people using PhotoBucket aren’t over the age…


  7. HEY!!!! You should have a contest thingy or somethin. Like every week u decide who made the best header, and u put their header up for one day.

  8. The reason I say that is because I made a panic button header!! I hope you like it! http://sites.google.com/site/randomness123212321/header

  9. please reply

    Sssaam: That sounds like a good idea, I’ll think about it.

  10. nevermind…… it is this: http://sites.google.com/site/randomness123212321/header

    Sssaam: Lol, awesome! But it’s not a header, it’s a banner. The header size is 904 by 160 pixels.

  11. lol. i knew that after i revisited this page a min. ago. I was reaaaaaaaaally bored, and u are a friend, so i made that.

  12. and will you put my banner on ur google page? If you dont like it, its ok

  13. Hello, Sssaam! I’m Laughing Ninja! Remember me? Counld you please add me to your Blogroll? I added you to mine! 🙂

    -Laughing Ninja

    P.S: Please reply.

  14. What do you think would look better with a picture of pie, Planet Benson text or Foo?

    Sssaam: Probably Foo.

  15. I can’t make an account! Any possibilities of help? I tried everything, but it wouldn’t let me get past the ‘enter username, enter password’ part (to make an account). What do I do?

    Sam: You can always make the image using a different program. If you have a PC, MS paint works fine.

  16. Yo Sssaam, itz sez “Upload failed for blank.jpg with error: Invalid file type”. I dunno wut 2 do. Oh i responded 2 dat comment u posted on ma site like 2 dayz ago.

  17. Use Tinypic if somethings wrong.

  18. HP is different from PC isn’t it? LOL, k, thanks Sssaam!

    Sam: HP is a brand of computer (like Dell). PC is the software it uses (Windows is PC). HP and Dell both run Windows.

  19. Very helpful – thanks!
