how to make a transparent banner

10

So, since it is autumn now I thought I could make an autumn themed edit. This time I drew trees with A and Aro-spec tops. I made the stem the lgbt+ flag to show how we stand on that foundation and are part of the community. I also included an edit where A and Aro-spec leaves are falling out of an Asexual and Aromantic tree to show that these orientations belong to the Ace and Aro spectrum. Each of the trees are transparent so you are more than welcome to use them as icons if you would like (You can also use the first two as banners if you like)! Just be sure to credit me ^^.

@our-connection-is-a-miracle and others have offered helpful suggestions as to what to say in emails. I used those ideas, and others, in the #renewsense8callparty and I thought I’d note them here in case anyone found them useful for them to use as well:

🌊DNI Banner Tutorial🐬

I was asked by someone how i made my banners, so I thought i’d share a bit of what i know in a small tutorial!

I personally use an app called ArtStudio for IOS. It costs some money but it works really well! It can be done on pretty much any art softwares!

First, you need a background that you’ll use (if you don’t wanna draw one) and a transparent image that you’ll want to use if you want to have a character in your banner! Here are the pictures i’ll use for this tutorial:

A farm background

And our good old friend Knuckles, bringing back a good amount of fruits and veggies that he harvested from his fields

First thing you’ll want to do is have the background you’ll use as your canva

Then what I do to get the exact banner dimensions is I import the banner on top of the background

The banner size will reduce but don’t worry we’ll scale the banner so it becomes big again later

Now what we wanna do is select the borders of the banner we just imported

When that’s done, move the banner up or down depending of what you want to be in your banner

When that’s done, crop the picture to the selection by pressing “crop to selection” in the Image section, and then delete the banner you used to get the dimensions

So it looks like this!

So we got the banner! Great!! But now we wanna make it bigger, because if you’re gonna put the transparent image in right now, it’ll look all pixely like this

Not good ey? So what you wanna do is resize the image by pressing “resize” (and not “canva size). Usually i do 2500px by 400px for my banners, it’s big and just enoughto get a good quality!

So now when i import my transparent image in it looks good!

Much better in fact! Now select the picture and move and scale it around how you want it to be! And then, pick a color and write your DNI! Usually my template goes as such:

“Please do not interact if: dd/lg, cg/l(re), kink, nsfw/18+ only, exclusionist, TERF, truscum, aphobe, agere society (Liltot, Tinyroyals etc)”

But you can shape it however you want it to be!

It’s so hard to read… barely readable right? That’s why we’ll do white borders around! Fuse the text layer with the transparent image layer and do “alpha to selection” so it selects everything. Afterwards, choose the “border” option and set the borders to 7 so it has sort of big borders. Then choose the “feather” option and put it at 4. That way the borders wont be hard pixels. Make a layer underneath the one with the transparent image and the writting and color in white!

Looking good, right? Now if you want you can play with the opacity of the white border to make it less apparent while making the text still readable. Save in PNG then you’re done!!

Congratulation!!! You got a nice DNI banner with a farmer Knuckles on it! Now you can use it on your posts to keep it safe!!

Here’s a few things to remember while making a DNI banner:

MAKE IT READABLE. Don’t do extremely pale/pastel colors on a white background with a small/hard to read font. You can do pastel banners but try to make them readable! That way people who interacts without your conscent can’t use the “I couldn’t read your banner” reason. I know it’s aesthetic but the purpose of a banner is to be read!

•Write as much options as you can while still making it readable. If you just write “dni if k!nk”, some people like in “sfw d/d/l/g” will say theyre not k!nk and reblog anyways because they’re “sfw”. Write as much as you can while still keeping it readable and fancy. Also, putting too much can make it too clogged so write the main people you don’t want interactions from!

•If you’re gonna use someone else’s art on your banner, please, please! Write a credit to the artist on the banner. Find a small spot on your banner and write “art by *artist username* on *Platform where it was posted*”, like in this banner that i made a while back:

On the bottom left you can read the credits. Make sure it’s on it so people know it’s credited


So that’s all the tips I have!! Have fun making banners my friends~!!!
