As you may have noticed, Instructables has a new homepage!
So, Instructables is giving you the power to create new Ads!

That's right, we want you to contribute to Instructables' new Ad Campaign!
Just make sure to put some decent effort into it, because we're only going to use the Ads that we like.

Step 1: Download the Template

First, you're going to need to download the Ad Template.

There are two templates, one is for Adobe Photoshop, the other is for The GIMP.
Can we still do this?
I just spent all this time making the old version!

Umm... ...thanks...
BTW, this instructable is awsome!
Do you all still want us to submit these?

Can you please make a AD template for mac computers? Please?
We don't do corporate ads in this manner. Also, the idea was for users to make their own ads, not for me to make ads for the users.

Who doesn't like bacon :)
Errr... you're not supposed to change the slogan!
Well you didn't say I couldn't :P
The instructable says you cant!
Check the date of the post you're responding to... In about 6 months, do you think there was time to edit this project?
It seems DIYbro has been all over the &quot;make your own homepage _ &quot; instructables recently. He just wants to be a hero =P<br/>
heh if you made that big enough you could sleep on bacon!

Hey, did you change the slogan/banner color??
Yes, but I used the color of the Instructables website header. I thought that the jpeg artifacts might not be as bad if there weren't any in the image to begin with. Here it is with the original color.
errr... I think it needs to have the original slogan, too... "Invent a cooler life."
yeah, but this picture with 'invent a cooler life' would make for more emos in the world.
I can't upload an image, green 'attach images' box flips open, but my library does not show. (In status bar, IE show Error) <br/>Here is my image :<a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/F0G/MLL2/F5R8QR4V/F0GMLL2F5R8QR4V.MEDIUM.jpg">Image</a><br/>for this instructable: <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/id/E509Y21BEAEQHO8YQA/">Instructable</a><br/>
Did you change the slogan??
Hmm, I am having trouble. I am sort of new to Gimp, so I need some help. So I downloaded the template, I have the picture I want. So should I Open the Picture as a New Layer? I am not sure if I am supposed to do that. Then I cannot seem to scale my image. So I have the image that I want behind the "Step 5" text. How do I edit that image to make it look better to fit? Is that the scaling? Then, I cannot seem to find out how to edit the "Step 5" text. Whenever I click the "T" in the GImp toolbar, I then click the spot where I want to edit the text. So that annoying box appears on the bottom of my screen. I type in the text I want, and I cannot move it. Sorry for being a "newb", but I really like this idea of Ads.
Okay, I'm going to start with your problems in a random order. To move your edited text, simply click on the "move" tool, then on the text layer, then on the text that you want to move. you could open the picture as a new layer, but I like to paste the picture, then change the "pasted image" into a new layer by right clicking on the pasted image in the layer window. Scaling the image is done by clicking on the scaling tool then scaling the image. This isn't the scaling that I'm talking about, and if you're having scaling issues, perhaps select a smaller sized picture from the website. You scale those little grey boxes behind the text, that is generally necessary. hope that helps!
That explanation seems like it will help me! I will try it after my Soccer game, and we will be on our way! Thanks!

Yes, I know it's not a JPEG. JPEG is the wrong format for something with a large solid block of color, so I used PNG. Reformat if you like, I take no responsibility for loss of color data.
Is it under 25 kb?
Yes, (right-click-->properties)
You can't go by that on instructables ;) The back end resamples and reformats the images to prevent large images from slowing down people's connection (and screwing up the layout) -- note in the properties that the image is a .jpg ;)
