Frequently asked questions

That stunning, captivating image gracing the top of your YouTube channel is a YouTube banner. Think of it as the ultimate business card for the most essential video platform on the web. But it's not just a beautiful picture; it's an influential tool to effortlessly showcase your brand's personality, so don't settle for anything less than an exceptional design.

Ideally, aim for 2560 x 1440 pixels for the ultimate impact, but don't worry - a minimum of 2048 x 1152 pixels will still do the trick. To really stand out, make sure your banner image has a 16:9 aspect ratio. YouTube embraces all types of files, so feel free to use JPG, PNG, GIF, or BMP-as long as they're under 6 MB.

Struggling with a blurry YouTube banner? Don't fret; we've got you covered! The culprit could be the resolution. Make sure it's high enough for that crisp look. Stick with PNG or JPG format for top-notch quality, and of course, double-check YouTube's recommended banner size. Avoid fuzzy disappointment and go for perfect proportion!

Ready to add a banner on YouTube? It's easier than you think! Sign in to YouTube Studio, go to the Customization tab, click on "Branding", hit "Change", and select your brand-new design. Need to make some adjustments? Simply choose a preview, adjust the crop, and when you're happy with the result, click "Done". Don't forget to hit "Publish", and voila! Your YouTube channel will pop up.

Want to make it easier for your viewers to find you on social media? You can add links to your profiles right on your YouTube banner - and it's super simple! Just head over to YouTube Studio and click "Customization". Then, go to the "Basic Info" tab and select "Add Link". In no time, your viewers will be just one click away from connecting with you on all your social media pages!
