Just curious, I currently use Picmonkey.com and Canva.com or a combination of the two, but I always have problems with fitting everything in to look professional! Does anyone have any suggestions or places they swear by?!?

Maybe even take a look at my banner and tell me what you think? I think I need to find a way to fix the spacing!

Definitely Photoshop. You could go for Gimp if you are looking for a free software similar to Photoshop. I also enjoy the freedom of vector based software such as Illustrator which does a great job if you decide you need your art much larger later on.

I used photoshop cs2 (ancient I know) for my thumbnails and banners. Also for my thumbs now that I think about it! Very versatile!

I use pic monkey and basically do trial and error. So if it doesn't fit the first time i just go back and try to fix it so that it will fit
