Select an image

Your YouTube banner needs to make a strong first impression on anyone who visits your channel, so select some eye-catching images. You can use your own images, or you can use handy search integrations in Marq to find them. Once you’ve collected all the images you want to use, add shapes and icons that match your channel’s personality.

Add copy

Don’t forget to include additional text, and choose a font that goes well with your channel. Your YouTube banner needs to communicate a lot of information in only a few seconds, so make sure it’s easily viewable. That includes keeping the most important parts of the banner toward the center, since many people will be looking at it from their laptops or mobile devices.
