    How To Design A Banner

    Chapter 6: Online Banner Generators

    The final method for creating banners that I'm aware of is to use various online services.

    While these services are quick and often free, they may not offer as nearly as much flexibility as designing the banner yourself, for example, because all their banners are based on predesigned templates.

    Additionally, a disadvantage of most free services, is that in my experience they will generally brand your banner with info/text saying how it was created - from your point of view, a waste the limited but valuable space on your banner. If you're concerned about this - and I think you should be - maybe you should take a look at Create Banner - the free option brands your banner with their info, but you if you try their offering and like it, you can then use their paid ("VIP Membership") option to create unbranded banners.

    Anyway, it's your choice, so here are a few such services:
    • AdDesigner.com
      Free, but adds rather conspicuous text mentioning their site on your design, therefore not one of my favorites.

    • AnimationOnline
      Free, creates animated banners based on your chosen template. Paying ("Deluxe") members apparently have more flexibility in the range of options available.

    • BannerCreater.nu
      Free online banner creator.

    • Create Banner Hot
      Nice online banner creator that creates lots of different banner types/sizes. There is a free option, and an optional paid option ("VIP Membership"). The paid options allows you to generate banners in more image formats, allows you to save banners for later options, and doesn't brand you banner, except with the info you add to it.

    • My Banner Maker
      Creates a wide range of different banners types and sizes. Principally, but not only, aimed at MySpace users.

    • QuickBanner
      Creates Flash and animated banners.

      Ulead GIF Animator 5 is the latest version of the popular tool for creating GIF animations for the Web. Version 5 cuts production time in half with simple drag-and-drop object-based editing, roundtrip auto-updating from external image editors, and tweening features. Banner text is even easier to make with more than 12 built-in movement effects that you can combine with special effects such as gradient and glow. Enhanced optimization and color palette management delivers the smallest file sizes. Output to video, standalone EXE, or Flash (SWF) formats makes it one of the most versatile animation tools.
