How to Make an Image • Create your own image from scratch using Photoshop – can be difficult and expensive if you don’t have PS • Create your image using your default image editor on your computer – can be difficult but basically free • Have an image created by someone else – easy but can cost money (try fiverr.com to outsource this if you want) • Make your ad on a word processor and add clip art or theme backgrounds and different fonts – easy and basically cost free There are many different options available
  4. 4. How to Hosting an Image To place an image ad you must have your image hosted on a remote server. Free options include: • Wordpress.com • Screencast.com • And more
