beyond.
Step 2: Define the needed pixel size
For each image that you need at a precise
pixel size, you will need to do this step.
From slide one, the Large Event Banner
size was 740x300. Indicate the template
size you need in pixels.
Click OK.
Select Pixels and enter
the size values needed
for your image.
Step 3: Make it easy to work with

command to save
it as a *.png file.

palette and then the
bucket to fill your image
background.
Use the Text

size note to
your template.
