In this video, you’re going to learn about the graphics you’ll need to complete your channel and look serious in the eyes of YouTube.

First your profile picture. This should be a 600 X 600 picture of yourself or a logo that you use across all social media. Next is your background image. This is a 2460 X 1440 image; however you want to make sure to design it in a way that it will work on a TV, desktop, and mobile device. So all important information should be placed dead center of the graphic. Last, you’ll want to have a 300 X 300 transparent .png file of your logo, or a message to tell people to subscribe. This graphic is your watermark and subscriber link. If you’re not a Photoshop pro, a great resource to use is Canva which has plenty of free or next to free templates to choose from.
