Start With a Blank PowerPoint Slide
Creating a stunning Facebook banner doesn’t have to be complicated. The first step is to open a blank PowerPoint slide.
You can do this by selecting File > New from the ribbon bar. Once your slide is open, you’ll see a blank canvas to begin designing your banner.
If you’re using a newer version of PowerPoint, you can also select a template from the Home tab. This will help you get started with some basic design elements, like background images and fonts.
If you’re feeling creative, you can start from scratch by selecting the Insert tab on the ribbon bar and adding in images, text boxes and shapes. If you’re using an older version of PowerPoint, use the Design tab to access themes and templates to help get you started.
No matter what version of PowerPoint you’re using, make sure to save your progress as you go along. This way, if you ever need to go back and tweak something, you’ll be able to quickly locate your work.
Insert a Background Image
Adding a background image to your Facebook banner is an important step in creating an engaging and visually appealing banner. You can insert a background image directly into the slide, or use a photo editing tool to create a custom graphic.
To insert an image directly into your PowerPoint slide, click the Insert tab on the ribbon and select Pictures.
Browse for an image from your computer or search online to find a free stock photo. Once you’ve selected your image, click Insert to add it to the slide.
To create a custom background, you can use photo editing tools like Adobe Photoshop or Canva. Create a new document that is the same size as your Facebook banner (820 x 312 pixels), and fill it with a gradient or solid color of your choice.
Then add your images, logos, and text to the canvas. Once you’re finished, save your design as a JPG or PNG file and insert it into your PowerPoint slide.
Add Your Logo
Using your logo on a banner is a great way to help people recognize your brand. You can insert your logo into the PowerPoint slide by going to the Insert tab and selecting Pictures. Choose the file of your logo and click Insert.
To resize the image, simply use the blue boxes around it to adjust the size. If you want to rotate or skew the image, use the green box in the top right corner of the logo. Make sure to keep your logo within the visible area of the banner, and make sure that it’s not too small to be seen!
Insert Text Boxes And Crop and resize your images
One of the best ways to make an engaging Facebook banner is to use images that capture attention and draw people in. To make sure your images are the right size for your banner, you’ll need to crop and resize them.
Cropping an image can be done quickly and easily in PowerPoint. To crop an image, simply click on it and then select the ‘Crop’ option from the Format tab. You can use the corner handles to select which area of the image you want to include in your banner.
Once you have cropped your image, you can resize it. To do this, simply click on the image, then click the ‘Size & Position’ option from the Format tab.
From here, you can enter a width and height for your image and select how you want it to be scaled (Proportionally, or not). Once you have chosen the size, click ‘OK’ to save your changes.
With a few clicks, you can quickly and easily crop and resize your images in PowerPoint, so they fit perfectly in your banner. Now you are ready to upload your PDF to Facebook!
