Online Services - (5 Stars) Very nice online interface to make banners. You
can add graphics, shadows, and even optimize the banner for quick download (save
for web). It's a very slick site and fun to use once you get the hang of it.
The banner below was done with the adobe site in about 15 minutes. (FYI: 1
out of 36 people click on it)
Online has several styles and a very simple interface. In 5 minutes you
could be uploading a banner here.
This banner was done with animation online.
Online Gif Optimizer: Once you have a banner it's always
a good idea to make the byte size as small as possible. This makes it faster to
download. The Adobe site above has a built-in interface called "save for
web" or you can use MediaBuilder
