    Hi,
    I want to make a nice animated banner, that will match with my site. I would like to put my logo on the banner, but does anyone know how I can do this? In my logo I have used different fonts and colours (I did the T W and O in a separate front)

    I've seen lots of free banner design places, but you have to use their templates.

    Any suggestions??

    You can incorporate your logo into your banner by using Adobe Photoshop's layers tool, or by using PaintShop pro. Those are two of the best programs when it comes to creating banners for your site. You can just cut/paste and edit the logo onto your banner. To animate it, you can download one of the shareware programs at http://www.tucows.com (I recommend GIF movie gear or Ulead GIF animator). You can download a trial copy of PaintShop Pro at http://www.jasc.com

    I think MGI Photosuit II is good for beginners. Then, you can advance to Paint Shop Pro (jasc.com), and finally, the big-time Photoshop.

    OR you can download the (free) beta (PSP 7.0) like I did.

    I recommend using PSP 7.0 since it's better and easier to use than PSP 6.0 (IMO).

    With PSP you get the Animation shop which has a Banner Wizard in it. Go with PSP
