NFT: Best software for web banner ad

AcidTest : 7/30/2021 5:40 pm
I would like to design a banner ad for my business that I can place on other websites as a marketing tool, similar to what exists on BBI and just about every other website and blog. Right now what I have is a banner ad I created in MS Word with my company logo and some text that I saved as a JPG file. But I'm not sure that will work.

I need several sizes (728x90)(leaderboard) and (160x60)(skyscraper).

Photoshop is out. I never learned how to use it, and don't have the time to do so now. I want something free and easy to use. I am focusing on Google Web Designer or Canva. The former looks better because Canva apparently charges a fee to resize images and ads. Which do you recommend, or is there something better? I am also open to hiring someone, but I'm not sure what that would cost. Thanks.

And I always leave the design work to designers. Why waste time learning design software when your end product will likely be infereior to what a real graphic designer can do?

You can get a banner ad designed for $5 - $25.

Check out these websites:

You can post your project for free and designers from all over the globe will bid on it.

You can even check out all the designer's portfolios before making a selection. And those sites will hold your money is escrow (Safe Pay) and not release it to the designer until you're satisfied.

Good luck!
Definitely get it designed

But if you don’t, you can probably use Canva
