Placing a photo in your banner

The site banner is that identifying strip that lies across the top of a page. Often, the banner contains a company logo or motto or other identifier that viewers can recognize and relate to. You can jazz up this element of your site by adding photos to it. To do so, just follow these steps:

  1. Open your layout in Photoshop and then open the images you're adding to the design.

  2. Drag the image to the layout file.

    Photoshop will automatically create a new layer for the image when it places it in the layout file.

  3. Select the image file and click the layer called Background.

    The background layer is an initial layer that is created by Photoshop by default. In a new document, this layer is empty or contains only a solid color depending on the settings you make when creating the file. With a photo or other image, the background layer contains the image.

  4. Drag the layer into the layout document window.
