I have been hunting around for a good banner making site to design a couple of banners to be able to promote a few of my little businesses, but do you think I can find a decent banner making site, that is not too complex and that can generate an easy code to be able to use on traffic exchanges and free advertising sites! I have spent a couple of hours trying without luck to find a site to create banners I also want to advertise Mylot, I went to the banners that were created in the competition some time ago, can you use them or they copyright to the Mylot member who created them? If I can use one, how do I get the html coding for it to be able to use it! Does anyone else promote Mylot using banners? Thanks!

I've designed a few graphics before. I'm not that good but it depends on the look, I did some for newbiegen awhile back and they looked like the worst most would ever come across but if you have trouble at getting help with this then feel free to pm me. If you let me know, if so what your exactly looking for I'll do my best. Most banner sites are good, although most will include their link and there used to commonly so there not really new for people. (most of the time) I guess you'd be able to use the one's for mylot, assuming the credit isn't taking from the actual designer and I'm not refering to you. I'm sure both mylot and the designer would want them being used, it makes no sense to not allow them to be used by members who won't take credit for such thing. ~Joey

Thanks my friend, (hope you got my message on newbiegen btw) the only trouble is if I use one of the mylot banners, how do I get the html to be able to use it on other sites, hmmmm... usually you get the url of the site you are promoting as the first line of the banner and the second line is the html of the banner itself and where the banner is, that's what I can't get my head round.

Have you uploaded the images to a site like photobucket? If you have that then you just need to use the html code for linking and showing an image. I would paste it here but you know mylot, so I'll refer you to a handy that might help you. :) http://www.pageresource.com/html/image3.htm ~Joey P.s I recieved an pm from you a few days, but if it's recently I don't think I have.

Hello wolf fiend. (lol) I would suggest you quit looking for such a site. Instead, learn to make them yourself. Grab a free program such as paint.net from www.getpaint.net which is more than sufficient for basic graphic manipulation. Check the site for the tutorials and you will be surprised by the countless things you can do. At newbiegen Joey is great at making banners too so you can pester him for help or to make tutorials. And Arkaf - she is a genius as manipulating pictures. Go pester her too. Don't ask me. I am only good at blabbering sometimes.

You're too modest lol! Thanks my friend, created a nice one for Mylot, if I had got my a55 in gear at the time I could have entered that Mylot banner comp, d'oh!

myLot test banner - This is a test myLot banner. I hope I can upload this.
You can make banners for myLot using a paint program. They have to be 468 by 60 pixels. Uncheck aspect ratio. You can make whatever color background you want and maybe put designs on it. The best way is to upload the banner to photobucket. So if your banner is called wolfiemylot.gif, then you upload it to Photobucket and they will give you the code to use. I hope that helps. I have given an example, not that good.

I would go to photobucket, If you want to create a banner, first make sure that the banner is 468 by 60 pixels. That design a banner, and upload it to photobucket. They will then give you the image to use and then all you need to do is to copy that image source.

I think I know what you want. To make a banner with your URL code in it? This site might help you. I made one banner so far, but haven't had time to make anymore.. AdDesigner.com I don't know if that will help, I know it can be used in blogs, but don't know about traffic exchanges..
