image How to create an ad banner yourself
Most of us associate computer graphics in general, and editing of images in particular, as the complicated for professional staff of designers, or the global self-mastering of graphic editors. We offer an alternative, which will help to cope with such tasks as: creating a banner, leaflets, invitation, presentation, logo and much more. Consider step-by-step creation of an advertising banner using the online editor Canva.
1. Selecting the size of the banner
After registering with the service, the user is prompted to select the image format from the catalog.
For advertising in the Globus, you will need to create 2 layouts measuring 1920x1140 px and 1140x1920 px for horizontal displays of computers and laptops, and vertical - smartphones and tablets.Clicking "Use special sizes" in the upper right corner, you independently set the size of the layout. You can change the layout size of the ready design in the paid version of the service, or in the free version, but for this you need: copy the elements of one banner to another and manually arrange the items in the desired order.
2. Select a banner template
After selecting the size, on the left you will see layouts that you can take as the basis of the banner. All elements of the layouts can be changed or replaced. If you see pictures with a dollar sign - these are cliparts or photos from stocks that are available in the paid version of the service. In addition, you can use your own photos or photos.
3. Add your own graphics and photos
Go to "My" section, where you can simply drag and drop to add to the editor your own photos, logos and other elements that you want to use in the design. Adding to the layout and moving the item is also done by moving the picture with the right mouse button pressed. Another useful feature is the adjustment of transparency. Make it translucent anything you like - text, photos, pictures, and so on.
4. Editing the banner
As already mentioned, you can change everything in the layout. But far from the original is not worth it - the templates are created by designers, considering all the laws of the craft. You can replace text, font, its color and size, as well as the color and texture of the background, the color of the buttons, and so on.
In the "Elements" tab you will find geometric figures, lines, buttons, icons, diagrams - everything that can be useful for advertising.
5. Download the banner on your computer
When everything is ready, it remains only to download the image and create advertising campaign.
