How do you make your banner so it's perfect size for all 3 for tv, tablet, phone. I got it right on my phone but tv or tablet won't display whole of photo for banner. This is my banner and I had to set it in middle of a 16.9
Ratio so it would look ok on phone. Only way i know how to do it. Is it possible to get all 3 to look way it is on all 3?
Any help be appreciated thank you

Ok, so the channel banner is an illusive thing. And because YouTube is watched on so many differant devices, it won't appear the same on all devices.
The TV is the max size you'll want, but depending on your audience, they might not ever sewe that.

Your best bet is to design for the "safe are" this is what mobile users will see and is the minimum safe are where things won't get cut off. If you don't put any graphics in the area of desktop max, all that area will be blank, which is why you should put something in there that isn't important where you don't mind if people will see it or not.

Couldn't help myself i changed it to this one now ;) i like it little darker to blend in with banner colour.
One last tip on your one, I'd make the background of the middle bar stretch out a big and fade out if you know how to do that? that way it will blend out better for desktop :) just for aesthetic reasons, but that looks great and will be perfect for tv :)

One thing to mention with these banners; YouTube is going to do an overall 'scan' of the average color and use that as the design color on your mobile presentation. So for example @TheRoutineInstructor the majority of your banner is that dark green color. YT is likely going to make the toolbar dark green for your page on a mobile device. This isn't always the case; there are some colors that YT doesn't use (I just don't know enough about it to be able to explain it). But playing with the color of your banner is how you adjust the colors of your toolbar.

Cool thanks for the heads up about that.

Thanks for sharing! I need to revisit my banner to follow this suggestion :)
