A banner day

While my husband and son went golfing, I wasted spent about 2-1/2 hours playing on FotoFlexer to come up with a new banner for my Etsy shop.  Here's the result:

The thing is, it doesn't all show up in the shop.  Only "indulge" -- even though I've resized it to the the requisite 760 x 1000 pixels.  A couple of times.

I'm no good at this.

I think I'm going to need to pay someone to create an identity for me, for both shops.  And some business cards, too.  Any suggestions?

I don't know, Laurie- I rather like how it comes up as just INDULGE- the background is gorgeous...

It looks pretty the way it is but I think I know the problem. You say in your post 760 x 1000
If you right click on the banner on etsy, then click properties, you'll see that the size is 760 x 100 (one hundred)760 is the width, 100 the height. I think you made an error and being too big it cut off the excess.....
just catching up on my blog reading and love your finds!

Hope you manage to work out what the problem is. I'm unable to offer any useful help as I find this kind of thing extremely frustrating! It looks good though and I agree that just the word Indulge ...... is very tempting! Perhaps it's serendipity?!!

Thanks for leaving a kind comment on my blog.

I do mine in Adobe/I-photo, usually, and it is a pain in the neck. Usually , in the end I use some artistic instinct to get it near where I want to have it. But it usually takes a gazillion tries!
