creating your own promotional banners

Week #30

This week is a purely Photoshop project.  The creative bug bit and I found myself wanting to create 5 x 7 cards to promote the blog.  I have no idea where I would distribute these cards, or to whom I would send these out.

Here's a tutorial for creating a standard banner of Photoshop - all you need to change is the size (I chose 5 x 7 inches) and you are good to go for this one.

Then, if you have a sidebar, and want to add some photos or banners, you can go ahead and select a favorite photo, crop it to about 160px to 600px, follow the steps from the tutorial on adding text, and come up with something like these:

Have fun!
