I have recently started a blog and I am enjoying it. While starting to follow other blogs, I am noticing that many of them have different types of banners along the top and on the sides. I don't see an option for making a banner so I'm a little stumped as to how people are getting them. Please help.
Actually, I can tell you a simple way that I go about making a banner and maybe our readers will share some of their tips on creating a banner.
First, you need to open a new blank document in MicroSoft Word.
|Example 1: Drawing Canvas that has been "filled" with color|
|Example 2: Blank Drawing Canvas with 1 picture inserted.|
3. When you add different parts (picture, etc.) to it, I would typically work with it OUTSIDE of the drawing canvas first. I first format it by selecting "TEXT WRAPPING" on the tool bar and then select "TIGHT" so that I can move it around easier. I then cut and paste it into the main box. *NOTE: When inserting anything into the DRAWING CANVAS you must have only the outside lines showing as in Example 1.
|Example 3: Drawing canvas after I formated the picture border of the rabbit|
and the Drawing Canvas. I also inserted WordArt.
|Example 4: Finished Banner. When uploading a "Gadget" on your blog, pick the "Picture" option.|
You will then be able to upload this and link it as you wish.
