    Make your Custom YT Channel [Tutorial]

    Post  Kentai-P on Sun Jul 04, 2010 6:14 pm

    Well I am sure you have seen professional YT channels which had banners and special descriptions and 'click me' signs a.s.o right?

    I can not give you all the pixel meassures, but I can give you something:

    If you take a look at my account, you'll see that I have a custom background image that goes seeminly over the whole page and has some custom signs on it.

    here the page:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/Kentai92

    and now take a peak at my background image:

    (rightclick: save graphic or show graphic for full view)


    As you can see all text adds and arrows and such are in the image.

    Feel free to use it as a template for your own meassurments!

    Important is that for full width your image should be between 1337px and 1400px

    Now after you have created your custom image just remember these things:

    1. If you make the bottom part of your image in one color, you can choose your channel background color as that color and refrain from making the image super heigh.
    2. this also connects to point one: Images can only be 256kb. Make them a jpg and don't save them at highest quality.
    3. your number 1 conscern when setting up your channel is transparencys, manage them right after you uploaded your background image.
    If you make transparency higher people can see your background better.
    4. Of course seeing your BG image is important, but the text in your channel is more important: make your wrapers white or a really bright color and then set transparency higher, that way dark Text can be displayed in a easy to read fassion and doesn't hurt the readers eye as it often happens.
    5. if you really think you know what you are doing you can make everything 100% transparent and put all of your channel text on the background image.
    This allows maximum customization and looks super professional, if you do it right. But it is extremely difficult and takes a lot of trial and error.

    with a bit of trial and error you can make your YouTube account awesome and increase the chance that people subscribe to you or friend you if they see it :3

    yeah I wondered too.
    But then I realized: wadeheck, the measurments aren't gonna fly onto my laptop, so why not try to get them yourself?

    it wasn't very tough.

    I made the BG.
    then editet the cnvas to fit the channel and to have the main part of the picture in the transparent part of my channel.

    then the bottom color thing.

    And then I added a box and tried to add it relative to where specific parts of the image were and the places I wanted to have the box in relation to it. (e.g.: greenhorns face is just under the 'invite as friend' button, so I could use it as a point of reference.

    and with like 7 changes and reuploads of the image I had all I needed.

    Then I added a box with my social contacts next to where my featured video is displayed and some widgy arrows and looky here signs xD

    UPDATE:

    I have totally remade my YT channel design.

    now to give you something more substential:
    mediafire.com ?zwmbh7g8iovu1id

    this is the blank photoshop file with all the preset boxes and their right places and aditional black shading boxes to allow better visibility for texts.

    to give you some ideas about how to make your YT channel awesome, check out what I've done with mine:
