Tumblr banners come in a variety of sizes, more commonly 1280 px wide by 1920 px tall. The largest size is around 2048 px wide by 1152 px tall. Using these dimensions, you can create your own custom Tumblr banner design.
To do this, start with a benner size using our specifications. Next, you can choose images from your computer or using the “Photos” tab in Crello to find the images that are going to be central to your design.
Remember that the existing themes can be used as a base for your design or as a way to find ideas. Drag the images onto your canvas and frame it using your dimensions. Next, pick some fonts and add your main text. Don’t put too much writing so as not ot distract the eyes. Add icons, stickers or other design elements.
