What are YouTube banners?
Originally, banners were called specific advertising images printed on flags or posters, for example. Since the triumph of the internet, most people know banners as graphics that can be used in various ways - for advertising purposes, for presentation, or as a purely decorative element.
A YouTube banner is a mixture of the last two examples mentioned. It represents your channel and is the first eye-catcher. A YouTube banner is also designed in such a way that it can help you to bring your individuality to the fore with its pure visual appearance. This banner contains some short information about you and your channel, for example, about your other social media channels or stream times. This way, new viewers can immediately see what and who they are dealing with when they visit your channel for the first time.
Is it possible to edit the YouTube banner templates?
The aesthetic YouTube banners from OWN3D are delivered to you as templates or PSD files. You can easily edit the PSD file with Adobe Photoshop or the free browser alternative Photopea.
