Creating a banner is a relatively easy task and can be accomplished in a few easy steps.
1) Open the photo you'd like to use in an image editing program, such as Adobe Photoshop, GIMP or Pixlr.
2) Use the "Crop" tool to crop the image down to 950 pixels in width by 270 pixels in height. (Consult your user manual if you're not familiar with how to crop an image to a specific aspect ratio.
3) Save the image as a .jpg, .png or .gif (Adobe Photoshop's "Save Image for Web" makes this an easy task).
4) Upload the image using banner upload area, which is accessed by clicking on your Web page's "Edit Page Layout" button and going to "Step 2 Page Banners" and clicking on "Manage/Upload Banners."
*** Pay very close attention to where you save the image. You will need to recall this location later to upload the banner to your county website. ***
