    I have been using Pixlr myself. I guess I should try some of the others and compare the difference between them. Although I am horrible at thumbnails but learning slowly. Thanks for the list SickMind33

    I use Pixlr.com, if you are familiar with Photoshop then Pixlr will be easy to use.

    I'm not sure if this one has been shared, but postermywall.com is a good option. You have to play with the sizes to get it right for what you are creating, but it is very easy to use and they have a lot of templates you can modify to create different things for your channel.

    Great list you have here. I will most likely be looking into a large amount if these when I get back to my desktop. I want to create unique banners and signature buttons for other forums but I have never been able to bring my visions to life for lack of skill and software .
