Youtube Banner Size:-

To design any youtube channel art banner, you must have an idea about its size. Because when people watch your channel from different devices, like android mobile, laptop, pc or other big monitor screens. It will convert to different sizes. That is why YouTube has created different sizes for different devices. See the screenshot above. I have written the size. In this part of the brown color area (1546x423 px), you have to show the basics of your design.

Because when your channel banner is displaying with the smallest devices. This size is showing to him. In the same way, the (2560 x1440px) size is for Smart TV screens. After all, YouTube banners are displaying in different sizes on different devices. The size of the youtube banner I have been telling you about for so long, this site may change in the future. You can search on Google for the current size of the YouTube banner. Hopefully, all the confusion has gone regarding the size of the YouTube banner. If you still have any questions about this, you can comment below this post.


Design Making process:-

In this step of the tutorial, I will talk about how I design this banner. Those of us who know about basic design must have known that a design requires a beautiful background. You can take pictures of this background from any of the free stock sites. Anyway, First I will bring the background image from my computer store on the Photoshop design artboards. There are three ways to do this.

The first way, you can click File > Place Embedded and select your image and click on Place to fit the image with the design artboard. The 2nd way, press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+O from your computer keyboard and put your background image on the artboard. The 3rd way, Click on the File > Open and bring your photo from the computer store. After Fetching that background image on the design artboard.

Now create a Brightness/Contrast layer by clicking (small black color box That I have marked) on the adjustment layer icon. Then changes the value of Brightness and Contrast, make sure that the Brightness/Contrast layer is above the background image layers so that its effect is visible on both background image layers. Now We need to make a duplicate layer of the background. As you see in the screenshot. Layer 1 and Layer 1 Copy. Then select Layer 1 and go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur And apply a minor blur effect on it.


When you applied the blur effect successfully on Layer 1. click on Rectangular Marquee Tool from the Photoshop sidebar menu and make a selection. After visible, the selection mark clicks on the Layer mask button. Before clicking on the layer mask, make sure Layer 1 is active so that the blur effects can be visible only in the selected area that we have marked using Rectangular Marquee Tool. All activities of this step are complete. If you do not understand what a layer mask is, look at the screenshot below. Now we move on to the next step. 


In this step, we will create some shapes using the Pen Tool and the Rectangle Tool. We can make the shape of the triangles on the left and right sides using the Pen Tool. And those three shapes in the middle can be created using Rectangle Tool (Shape Builder). After making those shapes. We will apply them to some Color and Gradient. To do this, double-click on the layer you want to implement the color or gradient. After double-clicking on the specific layer, the Layer Style window will open from there, checkmark the Gradient Overlay box, and select the purple gradient. 

In the same way, apply the color on the shapes click on the color overlay checkmark box. Then we remove the unwanted area from the rectangle shape. To do this again, select Rectangular Marquee Tool and select the safe area from the design artboard, and active Rectangle 1 layer and click on the Layer Mask icon to remove the unwanted area. I do the same with Rectangle 1 Copy layer and Rectangle 2. Please see carefully above screenshot.  



Now I will be bright the model image from my computer store. I go to File > Open and put this image from computer storage. When it open on photoshop, it will take a different tab. Now drag and drop the image to the main design artboard. Then I bright the image layer at the top of all layers. Then I make two copies of the image layer and Clipping Mask Respectively on Rectangle 2 and Rectangle 1. So that the image only visible on Rectangle 2 and Rectangle 1 layer. How do I make a clipping mask? I just keep my mouse cursor on the image layer and hold Alt+Ctrl+Shift and click on the image layer to make a clipping mask. Our main design structure has been created successfully. Now we just put the contact details on the banner.
