FTU - Lucky Me Facebook Banner

Lucky Me

This tutorial was written by me on February 24, 2013, using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX.
Please leave some love when downloading supplies. The artists/creators work hard to make/share their work with us, so let's be appreciative. Please use all correct copyright information and follow all TOU’s. Let’s give credit where credit is due.
As always, tutorials are only a guideline. If you don't have the exact supplies, use ones you have or ones you choose.

~*~*~* Note: When positioning your elements/tube, remember that your profile picture on personal Facebook accounts will cover the lower left corner area of your banner (Group banners, however, will show completely) ~*~*~*

Most artist/license company’s now allow you to leave the URL off Facebook banners, but please check the TOU of the artist/store you are using first to be sure ~*~*~*
