Hmm.."how to make a banner" is a difficult question, you know. Everyone of the graphic makers has a different style.

I, personally, started with this very helpful tutorial link.
The more you practice, the better you get.

And a regular size of a banner is 700x150 pixels.:)

Just a few little tips -


Blend. Use the eraser to fade rough edges.

Layers. Don't be afraid to experiment with overlaying, screening, and so on with layers.

Textures. Textures are fun. Experiment, again with overlaying, screening, on top of your main images. Do the same with layers of colors and gradients.

The best way to learn is by doing and experimenting is a good way to figure out what you want and like.
