How Do I Edit My Steemit Header To Include A Banner?

in steemit •  10 months ago

I'm so proud of my new banner, I want to slap in on everywhere.

How do I make it a thing on Steemit? How can I adjust and edit my header?

EDIT: Thanks to @stormriderstudio I was able to do it. This original banner is a bit big for Steemit. I will try some of my other ones.

This is the one that fits best.

If you go into Settings, then Cover Image and put the url of the banner then it should appear as your header. I put the URL below for you.

Thank you so much. I'll have to adjust it since it cuts it up. I have other versions that I made for Twitter and YouTube, so maybe one of those will fit better.


Yea, I don't know what the dimensions or requirements are. Best bet is to find someone with a banner that looks "right" and then right click and save the image, look at it in photoshop and copy the dimensions etc


Yeah, I went with one version that makes the whole thing fit. I might try other adjustments in photoshop, but for now, this is good :)

As pretty as it is, I'd advise against using it on Steemit right now. The info that Steemit automatically displays overlayed on the text in your banner makes it a confusing mess. That's why I have a generic "urban" type banner while I figure out what I wanna do. Might make for a good footer after your posts though.


Thanks for the tips. Maybe I'll make a version where I take out some of the text to leave room for the Steemit overlay text or something.

it looks really awesome, you did it so cool @binkyprod


Thanks. I'm getting more and more savvy in Photoshop ;)
