Use templates, high-res images, and graphics to make professional looking YouTube channel art (even if you aren't a designer).
...yet here you are, looking for a new way to whip up graphics for your YouTube channel. That's because most alternatives come with major shortcomings
First you need to figure out the proper image dimensions that account for TV, tablet and mobile viewing areas. Then you need to spend hours learning the software and navigating through a maze of features you'll never use.
You need to wait for your request to reach the top of their to-do list, and that's if you can even afford a designer. When they send you the finished design, it's pretty, but not exactly what you envisioned.
Plus, the best photos and graphics in their libraries, the ones you would actually want people to see, cost extra.
Click on 'YouTube Banner' to start with the perfect image dimensions.
Choose from a bunch of easily customizable YouTube channel art templates to save time and look like a pro. Or, start from scratch to unleash your inner creative.
Swap background images with stock photos that are high resolution, 100% free, and just a click away inside of Snappa. Then add, subtract, and modify text, graphics, and shapes until your graphic is exactly what you envisioned.
Download your new channel art and upload it to YouTube. It will fit perfectly and customers will think you hired a professional graphic designer.
YouTube Banner dimensions are available as a preset. A single click creates a canvas suited for YouTube channel art design; including mobile, tablet and TV safe zones.
With image resizing, you can design your channel art one time and then repurpose it for your other platforms. For example, in a couple of clicks, you can turn a channel art into a display ad, or a Twitter cover into a Facebook cover and email header.
