How to Make a Banner With JPEG


Banners are everywhere. Before the Internet, we used banners for celebrations and advertising. We still use banners for those purposes today, but we also use them on the Internet. On the Internet, banners are used for more than celebrations or advertisement though. Banners are used as a sort of sign, designating the name of the site, and possibly giving the viewer an idea of what the site is about. Making a JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) banner is a very easy task.

  • Click on "Start" and select "All Programs," then "Accessories," and click on "Paint."

  • Click on "Image" and select "Attributes..." Set the width and height of the image to the dimensions you plan to use.

  • Create your banner. Paint is a primitive program, but very detailed images can and have been made using it. You can also open up an image you would like to use as a background and crop it to the dimensions you want to use.

  • Click on "File" and select "Save As..." when you are done. Under "Save as type" select "JPEG." Give your file a name and then click on "Save."
