Reply Austin & Miles says: July 26, 2017 at 5:28 am Roberto we are small youtubers that plan on making it big later down the road. I know no time soon, and I am keeping up with the trend of a reaction channel that me and my brother created. 3 weeks ago today we was at zero but because we are dedicated we are growing consistently and by following your advice.

Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Adobe Audition, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects or Something Else? Reply Philip Chandler says: July 26, 2017 at 5:39 am I have a question here… my banner is made in Photoshop, and is 300 dpi, but I still feel like, when I upload it, the quality diminishes. Something looks very pixelated about it on a desk top. Mobile devices look alright, but something just looks… "off" on a desktop. Has anyone else noticed this? Is it something I'm doing wrong is this something to do with Youtube? Reply DJSKITTLES 88 says: July 26, 2017 at 5:45 am A lot of people don't have photoshop because it's expensive so maybe do tutorials on pixlr,which is a gr8 free software that's almost like photoshop but obviously not as advanced Reply Kalab Templeman Vlogs & Tech says: July 26, 2017 at 5:57 am Amazing video Reply DamiKnight says: July 26, 2017 at 6:02 am I would love to see Adobe Illustrator and Audition tutorials Reply PJ.

Reply The DBZ Collector says: July 26, 2017 at 8:34 am Did not know you can do that with the drop shadow. Reply Chris John says: July 26, 2017 at 9:06 am Really helpful tutorial, could you do one for creating custom backgrounds for end screens Reply Jessica Lamont says: July 26, 2017 at 9:23 am Hey Roberto. Another good tutorial. I have been looking at the YouTube dimensions and the placement of information for awhile. Some tutorials in after effects and audition would be nice. I have started playing around with both for sound and making moving graphics, but don't know know where to start since I'm new to both.

Reply Carlos Riojas says: July 26, 2017 at 12:49 pm How is text written in PS without font edges being jagged? Every time I use text in PS and view it in JPG the edges are rough and jagged. Reply THE NEW GAME TV says: July 26, 2017 at 1:21 pm Thanks man!! For all your teachings us!! Reply Juice says: July 26, 2017 at 1:37 pm I hate using Photoshop. PicArt is a better choice for me (And it's free lol). Reply JayQwery says: July 26, 2017 at 1:59 pm I don't have my laptop with me right now. However when I do I will rewatch this video so I can update my channel art great information. Reply LowellAnn Fuglsang says: July 26, 2017 at 3:22 pm You asked if there is another image program we would like instruction in – Yes – Canva Reply kevinsmak says: July 26, 2017 at 3:42 pm Good stuff I really could use more Photoshop tutorials I learned a few tricks. I was wondering what hot keys you used to spread out the text so it was more like this: t e x t Reply Dani Alexandria says: July 26, 2017 at 4:00 pm yes please with the social media stuff! could you talk about Ai and making logos in there and then using it across platforms?

Reply Nothing To See Here says: July 26, 2017 at 7:53 pm I'm on ios 🙁 Reply Niels Kemp Creative says: July 26, 2017 at 7:53 pm Although this stuff is interesting, i'm not sure this is the way to go for you. It's all very specific and if people are looking for specific tutorials there is already a lot around. You've done an awesome job creating great quality content and please keep doing that. If you're looking to expand your content i'd like to see more of who Roberto is because i subscribed because of some video, I stayed because of you buddy! Keep sharing your insights, more q&a's, take us with you trough your routines etc etc. That's what makes me as a consumer keep coming back. Anyway, keep up the great work bro, cheers from Amsterdam (and keep creating awesome) Reply KSG says: July 26, 2017 at 8:24 pm Dude I was wanting to change my channel art it's so bad Reply Mikey Bee says: July 26, 2017 at 8:33 pm Wow this is perfect timing, I was just searching for this, thank you!

Reply Elaine Harvey says: July 26, 2017 at 10:42 pm Would you ever place a $-Wallet for monetization within the Channel Art? … Reply João Soares says: July 26, 2017 at 11:12 pm Question:Roberto, as a choice a to free video editing software, would you recommend me DaVinci Resolve? Is it too much for someone with the basics of video editing? The thing is, I can't afford to buy Premiere Pro at this moment but I don't wanna work with something so basic as Windows Movie Maker. I want to learn and practice real editing skills. So… is DaVinci Resolve the best free alternative to Premiere Pro? Thanks for the channel art tutorials in Photoshop! I'm loving it! Simple and straight to the point! Reply Musicman The FAM says: July 26, 2017 at 11:33 pm That's pretty cool!

I have been unhappy with channel art for a while now. And just really didn't know where to start. Reply Beanie Draws says: July 29, 2017 at 1:04 am I already know how to make channel art, but watching this because I always like watching other creator's process of how they do it 🙂 Reply Beanie Draws says: July 29, 2017 at 1:04 am I already know how to make channel art, but watching this because I always like watching other creator's process of how they do it 🙂 Reply Focus on Me says: July 29, 2017 at 1:29 am Can you make a video on how to remove yourself from one background and put on another background. Reply Apex Sprites says: July 30, 2017 at 5:21 pm Where can I download the template that you're using? Reply FAT2FIT says: July 30, 2017 at 8:13 pm Thanks buddy. Which font is used for "Always Be Creative"? Thanks in advance. Reply Leah Carr says: August 2, 2017 at 5:27 pm I'm on a tight budget.

Great Vid. Do you create your own graphic cartoon character? If so do you have a video on how you did it? Reply Justa Guy says: March 27, 2018 at 1:43 pm Well done on the video over all the only issue I seemed to have with this is you used pretty much all pre made assets that you did yourself and just dropped it in. I think a way to find free artwork to use (or even make easily) plus the text and such would of been nice. Reply Jk Canvas says: April 5, 2018 at 11:49 pm Way over my head at this time. I need my computer to follow. Reply This and That with Denise Jordan says: April 17, 2018 at 1:51 pm This was great. I will try it but… how did you bring those things in?
