What is the best banner making tool?

Hi,

Does anyone have a good banner maker program/online tool that they would personally recommend, preferably one with flash (swf) capability? I have seen Banner Maker Pro mentioned but I would like to be sure before I commit the cash. Of course, if you have a good, free option that would be first prize!

Many thanks

Hi there,

Yes, you do have to pay for Banner Maker Pro, but they do have a free trial offer for 15 days I believe! Another option is Banner Fans or this one that another one of our users, Alex, mentioned in a thread a little while ago: Flash banner generator.

Here is the thread: http://getsatisfaction.com/yola/topics/old_banner_still_has_some_fight_in_him

Hope this helps!

Hi 1confidentblugger

I found that with flash banners you get what you pay for and sadly a free flash banner maker with the ability to add lines of text, images, and animation is a white whale... Meaning that yes their are many banner makers that you can use which can do one or several but only the paid ones are truly professional in appearance. Banner Maker Pro I have found to be a little much for what they offer you as a product. There are many free banner makers out there which can do a better job and do it without costing you anything. Most all trial versions come with some sort of watermark which can be quite distracting to your visitors.

A free flash menu maker website I started with tutorial on how to make it work with YOLA. http://free-flash-menus.synthasite.com There are many banners which you can use at the main site here http://www.flashvortex.com/ Simlpy use the tutorials to place them on your site.

My personal preference is Aleo because of all that they can do. In addition to being cheaper than Banner Maker Pro they offer you more bells and whistles with their paid product. You can see examples on my index and home page of how versatile they are. And of course easy...I have a few you can try on my links page http://free-flash-menus.synthasite.co...

Hi Denise

Thanks! :)

Nice to hear from you and welcome! Yola is a great tool isn't it? I am hoping to create a customised banner with my own text and images, so I am looking for a specific software application but thanks for your input!

Try this - it's completely free!

You do have to put up with their text advert on the bottom of the banner (unless you pay), but I found this site very easy to use and have created all my banners with it.

I've got a small banner at the bottom of the home page of the following site (free chillout music here). Take a look;
