    Can anyone recommend some awesome banner software that you are using, or have used? (Reasonably priced) of course and fairly easy to use.. for Mac.
    I would like one pre-loaded with templates and images.

    Photoshop... Simple, easy to use, and the possibilities are endless.

    If you're looking to become a graphic designer, you'll need Photoshop. If you're not becoming a developer, stop being cheap and hire someone to do it.

    I would use Illustrator over Photoshop for stand still graphics like that, but otherwise, macdonjo3 said it all :)

    Download GIMP(free photoshop) and google GIMP banner template. Or get a copy of photoshop and search the same. There are a lot of pre-made templates you can work with. As you get better at working on the pre-made templates and comprehending the fundamentals of the process you can probably create your own completely original banners.

    If you're willing to spend money you can probably find a gig on fiverr of course.

    Xheader is ok for an average banner and it's free too, just google it while Photoshop is the best. You will need to learn the basic, the rest will be based on your imaginations.

    +1 - bannerfans.com has a lot of options for a free program...but of course as everyone stated nothing can beat photoshop. But for a quick banner that site will work.

    Try photoshop, comes with 30 day full trial.

    Or 'acquire' it from ebay or other sites which have it.

    use standard software's like PS, illustrator or flash. the quality which you gain from them can't get from other ones.
    you should have some previous knowledge o handle them. for that use YT and tutorial sites.later it'll become handy.

    Better to hire a designer and done your work on cheap rates. software does the same things again and again give you limited things but designer gives you limitless options.
