How to Create and Upload Social Media Banners in Photoshop

Why Use Templates?

When uploading a new image as a social media banner, some areas will be covered by items like avatar photos and account information. Using a template will allow you to know exactly where these icons appear, allowing you to design around them.

Each network, from Facebook to Twitter and Instragram to Linkedin, all use different sizes and different layouts. It can not only get confusing to remember, but create extra work that wastes your time. Using our the free template files we have created, will ensure your social media banners look great every time.

Use the provided premade social media templates to create your social media banners and get more traction on your upcoming projects!

    I have never understood why all social media templates are not just an inherent part of Photoshop and Lightroom – they are used all the time. I made my own – but these are better – thanks Phlearn this is simple and effective – the best way to learn.

    This is good, but if you are considering updating this (or making a paid version,) I would wish to have the following:

    * Additional templates for other facebook covers, such as groups and events (Pages and Profiles fit this template, the others are slightly different and have different blocked areas)
    * Clear indications of which part of the image is visible on mobile (perhaps by low opacity color in the PSD, or another overlay layer)

    If this could really template all my social media stuff, and stayed up to date, I would pay ~ USD 29.99

    I haven’t been checking in in a while….you still rock Aaron! You are truly the best teacher out there! Sometimes things can be nice and simple after all:)). Cheers, keep on being awesome:)

    The templates have an embedded adobe RGB profile, should be sRGB to avoid unwanted colorshifts!
