I started creating banners by trial and error which sometimes isn't a bad place to start. The only problem is that it takes longer than it would if someone could teach you to do it. By finding someone to teach you makes it much quicker and without the need for trial and error.
This is where I come in. By reading this and following the screen shots here you should be able to master how to create your own banners quickly and effectively.
So here goes.
What is paint ?
Paint is a basically a photo editing programme by Microsoft. If you don't have the programme you can download it by doing a Google search.
It allows you to make your own pictures, which, in turn, means that you can easily create the type of banner you need.
