    I uploaded a 300 dpi cover.....its was a very High definition picture and it looks very HD when i open it in Windows Picture viewer.......
    But when i upload it on Youtube,,, it looks a little blurred....Not very blurred...but it does look odd........

    I Think the video matters...not the banner........
    But still.....you need a good banner if you want your channel to look nice and tidy :)

    Thanks for the great advice. I recently figured out how to make thumbnails for my videos..soon I'll want to start learning how to do the channel banner and background.

    Thanks for all your great tips. I'm looking to redo mine. I paid someone on fiverr to do it and he made me look all weird:(

    Oh is that the banner you have just now? Looks like the avatar on it is just out of proportion, if you mask it out and stretch it on the Y axis on photoshop it should look a little less obscure :p

    Epic tips, very useful I have to say! But I think you missed a very important part ~ The dimensions of the channel banner. It would be nice to include them here, and to mention that for every device (TV, PC, tablet, mobile...) the banner will look different. I think that's what people would like to know, first of all, when creating a banner :) But hey, that was great anyways ;)
