    Word is NOT a graphics editor. My opinion: FrontPage is the world's WORSE web editor. WordPad, Word, Publisher and even the infamous FrontPage should NEVER be used for web pages. They guarantee that your web pages will NOT be cross-browser compatible because of all the Microsoft Schema code it adds. Only IE and Maxthon understand this code.

    Try using these to make your banner:

    FREE software (No Animation):

    http://www.getpaint.net/ (Very user friendly)
    GetPaint Plug-ins: http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewforum.php?f=16
    GetPaint Help File: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/index.html
    POS FREE PHOTO EDITOR (v1.27): http://www.photopos.com/Pos-Free-Photo-Editor.asp
    http://www.download.com/PhotoScape/3...html?tag=mncol
    http://www.inkscape.org/download/ (Very good for vectored graphics)

    Or, try these free online utilities...

    Free online sites to make banners:

    A few of those may not amount to much or not be under your control, but those that are should be corrected.

    The list above is super awesome, but if you can't process all that great info, here's a slimmed down version:

    - get photoshop (or gimp if you can't figure out how to crack it)
    - play around with it a bit, google "photoshop beginner tutorials", etc.
    - It will be easy for you to make a simple banner after this

    Once you have a work in progress if you are still looking on suggestions on how to make it better, ask here
