Frequently asked questions.

What should I include in a banner for YouTube?
The idea is to create a YouTube banner that echoes the theme of your channel and resonates with the audience. Feature channel branding such as your logo, colours, tagline, or even your headshot. Make a design that is clean and easy to read while still being engaging.
Should I include a profile picture in my banner?
The choice is yours. Some outstanding YouTube channel art examples are just a logo or slogan. Another option, instead of a profile picture, is to use graphics or illustrations that represent your channel, or even stills from some of your most notable videos.
What is the recommended size for a banner for YouTube?
YouTube recommends making your banner 2560px by 1440px, which is an aspect ratio of 16:9. To make sure your YouTube banner crops in the best way possible on any device, keep the important parts of your design within the centre area of 1235px by 338px.
Can I create my own YouTube banner template?
Any new or existing project can be turned into a shareable template. To turn your YouTube banner into a template, click on the three-dot menu at the left of the Download button and follow the steps to turn your design into a template.
