  • A call-to-action

Be sure your images, colors and text are on-brand so that you make a lasting impression.

Each platform has its own recommended sizes for web banners. A Twitter banner is typically 1500 x 500 px, while a Tumblr banner is 3,000 x 1055 px. With the right tools, you can change the size of the banner you have to fit any platform.

Choosing the right file format for your web banner depends on its design. If your banner contains illustrations without any photos, go for a PNG. If your banner includes photos, a JPG file works best. For animated banners, a GIF usually does the job.
