=== How to Create a GameBanner === By: Homestar99


~1: Open the BANNER template.psd, that comes with the download, in photoshop.

~2: Create your banner how ever you see fit.

~3: Once finished, Hit 'File', 'Save-As'

~4: Go to the Game Banners folder where all the names of the people are, and make your own folder. (This only needs to be done once of course)

~5: Then in 'Your Folder', Create a Folder for the name of the game.

~6: Save your picture in the Folder of the game it's for.
REMEMBER to save it as a .png, not the default .psd, or this wont work.
