I'm having a lot of trouble designing my YouTube banner because I don't know the size the template should be for the design to fit desktops. I'm always having to go back and adjust things because an element is out of the design space for desktops.

But there's an issue! YT won't allow me to upload a Banner image that is less than 576px high! How do I get around this?

If that is your issue, you can always use a resizing tool online that keeps the aspect ratio of your original image. So resize your height to 576, but it will also resize your width so your image doesnΓÇÖt look funky.

But I want a wide banner for desktop. Like this one...
I see! What i would recommend is to have an entire image that has the dimensions 2560 x 1440, and place your desired banner image in the center of that so it can show on desktop.
Maybe that entire image of 2560x1440 can be a blue background that matches the color of your banner.

The recommended size for a YouTube banner is 2560 x 1440 pixels. It is best to center essential elements like text or logos inside your 1546 x 423-pixel safe area banners.

I'm having a lot of trouble designing my YouTube banner because I don't know the size the template should be for the design to fit desktops. I'm always having to go back and adjust things because an element is out of the design space for desktops.
In most app they have also the full size, like canva or inshot

It's horrible/immpossible to get a banner that fits all devices, hte desktop one is trail and error once you get close, but it's a bit of a juggle! Good Luck...

I'm having a lot of trouble designing my YouTube banner because I don't know the size the template should be for the design to fit desktops. I'm always having to go back and adjust things because an element is out of the design space for desktops.
Creating a compelling YouTube banner that fits seamlessly on desktops can indeed be a bit tricky, but fear not, as I'm here to guide you through it. To ensure your banner looks great on all devices, it's crucial to design it with the right dimensions. YouTube recommends a banner size of 2560 x 1440 pixels. However, the key is to focus on the "safe area" within this larger canvas, which is 1546 x 423 pixels. This safe area ensures that your banner will display properly on all desktop screens without elements getting cut off or going out of bounds.

When you design your banner within this safe area, it guarantees that essential elements like your channel name, logo, and any text won't get cropped on desktops. Also, remember that your banner will be responsive, so it's essential to test it on different devices and screen sizes to ensure it looks appealing across the board. By adhering to these dimensions and considering how your banner elements align within the safe area, you'll significantly reduce the need for constant adjustments, making your YouTube banner creation process much smoother
