    Here are two designs i came across today. Both are pretty simple yet very neat and clear. I really like this kinds of designs and they don't seem hard to create. So my question is, what tools/services are being used to design these?

    These are very simple headers. They are made using Photoshop. It's pretty easy actually.

    Adobe Photoshop, you can find this software easily but I think you must have to understand that software first and then can design this.

    For adobe tutorials why not search in youtube. There you will find a video explained tutorial.

    If you want it urgent then I can do for you.

    Thanks a lot, guys. I'm on my way to look for some PS tutorials.
    By the way, any recommendation on creating stunning headers? Tutorials? Easy to use software (easier than PS)? I've noticed there are some products/resources for creating amazing ebook covers, so there might be some for header designs as well.

    Pick up a copy of Fireworks. If you do mostly web based graphics work, then it's the best & easiest to learn.

    If you have the skills, then Photoshop will do the job.

    If you want a shortcut, just buy XHeader and save yourself the time.

    There is a free version of XHeader that might work. Possibly, a crack on BHW for Pro.

    Look at QuickWebCreations .
    If you try to leave, membership will drop to $17. I think it's a one-time pay. They do have a subscription (Pro) version, too.

    Pixlr editor is free and there's a great series of YouTube videos on how
    to create banners with it.

    Just looked at Splashup . It's free, handles layers, filters, and has a variety of text tools. Pixlr and Splashup are both on-line.
    Nothing to download.

    If you are doing photo editing, portraitprofessional is amazing (check the gallery). There is a free version,
    but the paid version can make you money of fiverr. It has an algorithm of what a "good looking" face looks like, and tweaks a
    photo a little or a lot.

    There is also online editor that is kind of a simplified version of photoshop and it's called pixlr (I know it looks like it's spelled wrong but it's not). You'll have to google it to get the url as I can't post links yet.
