How to Make Your Own Title Banner

Save

The first thing a visitor sees when coming to your website or profile is the title banner. This makes the banner a very important visual cue that helps visitors determine who you are and what your site is about. You can create a title banner for free using Microsoft Paint, a program that comes installed with Windows.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer running Windows
  • Determine the size of your title banner based on your webpage design. You want a banner that will communicate to the visitor, but not something that is too large or overwhelming.

  • Click "Start" and select “Programs” or "All Programs," depending on your version of Windows.

  • Navigate to the “Accessories” folder and double-click the “Paint” program icon. This will launch Paint.

  • Change the shape and size of the default white box by clicking on the corner of the box, holding down the mouse button and dragging your cursor across the screen. Make this box the correct dimensions of your banner.

  • Choose a background color and fill in your banner using the “Paint Bucket” tool. This will look like a paint can icon. You can choose to make the background the same color as your webpage to help it blend in, or a color that will stand out in contrast to your website.

  • Click on the “Text” tool to place text on your banner. This will look like a capital letter “A.” This tool will place a text box on your banner and open up a new “Text” tab.

  • Design the banner text using the tools in the “Text” tab. You can choose the size, font, color, and opacity of your text.

  • Customize your banner design further by using the “Shape” and “Brush” tools to add colorful shapes, lines or brush strokes.

  • Save your image when you have finished customizing your title banner.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use the blue “Undo” arrow in the to left hand corner if you wish to undo any changes you have made.
  • You can add as many text boxes to your banner as you like.
  • You can move text boxes around on your banner by clicking and dragging the text box.
