hello, this is corrosivelick and i am really interested in finding out how to make my own custom branding for my channel that will really wow my viewers and give my community a more positive outlook on my channel.
I agree with Brandon (that's a nice name, you got there, lol).
If you're short on money, and still want to put in the effort, I used GIMP for years, before I was able to afford photoshop, and it can do just as much, and is a great starting point so if you ever do get into Photoshop you have somewhat of a good foundation. Plus, something is better than nothing!
In that case, youtube is your best friend. Lookup tutorials, and practice! That's how I created my channel banner, and my outro.
You have to actually go in there for yourself and play around with it, so while you're watching tutorials, attempt follow along, and it's totally ok if you get lost along the way or fall behind, that's why there's a rewind (dr. seuss in the haus).
