How to create YouTube channel art

Select a YouTube channel art template

Choose a YouTube channel art template that matches your channel style. Search our templates by keyword or interest. Try "lifestyle" or "fitness" or "real estate" or even try searching for colors you like.

Customize your channel art template

Make your channel art template your very own when you add text, graphics, your logo, and other images to the design. Try filters on your photos for a unique look, or use cool fonts and text effects like curve, drop shadow, or outline on your words.

Export your finished design

When your design is looking fabulous, download it to your computer, or export directly to YouTube from PicMonkey. Your work always auto-saves in our cloud storage so you can return to it again to edit or make a new copy.

Publish your channel art

Upload your YouTube channel art designs to your YouTube channel and instantly appear like a well-branded professional. Give your whole channel a cohesive look with branded covers, thumbnails, icons, and more.

Make YouTube Channel Art with blank canvases

When you want total design flexibility, start with a pre-sized blank canvas. Add photos, graphics, and text, then use alignment grids to arrange ’em perfectly.

Don’t stop there! Refine your YouTube channel art design with drop shadows, outlines, masking, and eye-popping effects.
