I just thought I would post my Microsoft Publisher document with my blog banner and Twitter profile background.
In other words, with the Publisher document above, you can make your own version of these:
and my blog banner
Many of you probably have Microsoft Publisher on your computers with Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) You could modify my document in Publisher and make your own.
In Publisher, you have to learn to group and ungroup objects.
1. You ungroup the objects.
2. Then you make any changes.
3. Then you hold down the shift key and select all of the objects that form your header and then click "Group."
4. Then you right click and "Save as Picture."
Twitter background photos have to be less than 700 KB (or 800 KB?) or Twitter will not upload them. Mine is 657KB.
You can change your Twitter background by going to Settings / Design / Change Background Image.
I am no designer but I just thought I would share with you how I've muddled through.
