Thumbnail creator is very easy to use. Is there a way that we could also use this to create our channel art? as I can never get the channel are dimensions right and I have not got the time to learn photoshop.

thanks

Oh yes!
I second this. I've watched scores of how to videos for banner art using GIMP but if TubeBuddy had a template with correct dimensions for background, text etc, I would be in You Tube Heaven!

I don't know if it could work in Thumbnail generator, perhaps it's own separate tool since Thumbnails have there own specific section and area dimensions on YouTube already. I'll tag @Phil :)

This would be a great feature Andrew, esp for smaller channels or people like myself who don't have the time or patience (I have a brain injury so my short term memory is damaged) to learn photoshop or other software. It would be great to create that all important banner as a once needed (perhaps) item :)

Even if it was a stand-alone feature that could be accessed from our account here at TubeBuddy. so we could create the channel art here at Tubebuddy and then upload it to our YT channel. you could add it to the star feature for example.

Hey guys. I just wanted to add my requests as long as we are on the subject. Is it possible to maybe add a graphics tool? Like a subscribe, like or thumbs up banner? Maybe so we can change the color, font etc and then the graphic motion? Like the animated lower 3rd.

Great idea! I usually either Photoshop, or use the free tool Canva.com to make these things. If there is no open API for the cover art, maybe a partnership could be made to make this happen!
