If you want to build a community around your ideas, Tumblr is a great place to start. Tumblr has 550 million users per month.

And it’s a great place to target people with images.

Whether you’re sharing GIFs, videos, photos, or banners, you can capture attention quickly and easily. Your brain can recognize a familiar image in only 100 milliseconds, making images an incredible way to share content and build your brand.

Having a Tumblr banner helps make your page look professional and consistent, allowing you to create a brand image as you build your community of fans and customers.

Adobe Spark makes it simple to create a high-quality Tumblr banner even if you aren’t a professional designer. Here’s how.

Read on to find out how.

Choose a Size

Adobe Spark’s Tumblr banner maker offers a variety of image sizes so that you can match any template. Make sure your image is visible and easy to read when visitors come to your site.

Having images that are already pre-sized to fit Tumblr’s banner formats makes it simple to get your banner started without having to read upload requirements of dozens of other sites.

You can use your own image or choose from thousands of royalty-free photographs.

Choose Your Theme

A theme is a collection of colors and backgrounds that fit together to make your banner cohesive and easy to read. When you select a theme from Adobe Spark’s selection, you know that your palette works well and is attractive.

If you want to make changes to specific elements, don’t worry, you’re not locked in. You can adjust the theme to fit your brand imagery and the personality you want on Tumblr.

Decide on a Font

A font can say a lot about your brand, so it’s important to pick typography that fits well with your banner size and professional presence. Whether you want to be professional, artistic, edgy, or eclectic, Adobe Spark has the font you need.

Spark offers a broad range of professionally designed fonts, which keeps you from having to worry about finding fonts, designing your own, or coding your banner yourself.

Consider a Custom Tumblr Banner

You don’t have to use a template if you don’t want to. Adobe Spark also allows you to customize your Tumblr banner in a variety of ways.

Instead of using a photo from the collection, upload your own image from Adobe Creative Cloud, Dropbox, or Google Photos. Also, feel free to tweak the existing themes. Themes can make it easier if you’re short on time, but you can also make them as unique as you’d like.

Once you have the text, images, and icons that work best for your page, consider purchasing a premium font from Adobe Spark. There are a variety of unique fonts available to help your Tumblr page stand out.

Creating a Tumblr banner doesn’t have to mean you hire an expensive designer. Instead, use the free Adobe Spark app. You can easily create the banner you need while saving your hard-earned cash for other needs in your business.
