    just purchased and hope to alleviate some fiverr frustration with TLC...

    i know this is a stretch (for a logo maker), but i for one would gladly pay for any easy to use youtube channel art maker (addon or seperate software0

    the YT parameters for channel art are a Royal PITA ;-)

    thanks

    I think you'll find that you've come to the right place! Just make sure the banner you create is the correct size and you'll be good to go. If you need help be sure and ask on the forum here. Lots of helpful people! Look around the forum and watch for free graphics too! Good luck on your project and let us know if we can help.

    I've just done some quick experiments: 2048 x 1152 is the minimum size of an image for your youtube channel--- it won't even let you use smaller images. 423 x 1546 is the minimum requirement for mobile YT apps.

    The max size of a logo in version 6.8 of The Logo Creator is 1440 x 1440....

    You will have to use a 3rd party program to gt to the dimensions needed....

    i've actually used online editors that specialize in YT channel art, but even they are frustrating
    mainly because YT is so fussy that even when using these apps you still end up with either -
    insets that are too small or too big (and that run over onto main image)

    note: i do a lot of YT seo, and find that almost no one is bothering to create decent channel art for these reasons
    (this as opposed to Facebook's ease of use for timelines, etc...)
    sometimes (with all that money and genius) the Big G just makes some very stupid and non-user friendly choices

    thanks

    I may MT.... I just may.

    I'm almost done setting this up.
    There's a lot left to do (like create some nice templates) - but this should be pretty slick if I do say so myself.

    Next week, I'm launching the People Pak 2
    then after that, I'll announce this YT channel art system - but before that, I'll hit you up and see what you think of it. :)

    I'm excited. My 3 year old son just ran up to the computer pointing and saying," Batman, Batman!". That's a good sign!
