Transparent Word and Picture Banner

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby ♥ILoveParis♥ on Thu Aug 13, 2015 3:31 pm

I've been seeing around the roleplay community a lot of banners, ie for characters name, roleplay titles, really just everywhere. Basically it's like some words and a picture or two on banner and the background if transparent, made at a third party source. I'm just curious if anyone knows how these are made?
Thanks

Usually their made in programs like photoshop or illustrator, and I've done quite a few.
There are also .gif generators out there, just a quick google will get you some pretty decent results.
All depends on what route you want to go.

I use PicMonkey to do most of my editing. I mainly use it because I'm a crappy coder but I can break down for you how I use it. First I costum create on the site. About 900x width fill up the whole roleplay homepage so you can go from there. You can make the banner background transparent. Then type and go about as you please,

Save your files as PNG and they should be better quality than a GIF file.
