Who is WiseBanner for?

Both experienced designers, and internet marketers. In the case of designers, WiseBanner drastically cuts out the workload required to create banner sets. For internet marketers, you no longer have to rely on designers to produce banners. You can take full control and produce your own banners in minutes, and even quickly create variations for the purpose of split testing.

Do I need Photoshop? If so, which version?

Yes, wisebanner requires Photoshop to operate. You need Photoshop CS4 or later to use Wisebanner to export static JPG's. If you wish to use Wisebanner to create animated gifs, you must have an "Extended" version of Photoshop version CS6 or the latest CC. Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.5 will not work with animation. To verify if your version of Photoshop can handle animation, load up Photoshop, go to the "Window" menu, and check to see if "Timeline" is an option at the bottom.

If you have a version earlier to Photoshop CS4 and/or do not have an extended version, Adobe Creative Cloud is Adobe's subscription service for owning nearly all of their latest software, and it's only around $50.00 monthly.

I have little to no experience in Photoshop, is this a problem?

No. As long as you're willing to go through our "How-To" videos, you will do just fine. You should definitely watch all three of the "Getting Started with Fundamentals" videos (or read the written version), and also a few of the full banner design tutorial videos. Once you watch these, you'll be set!

Are there any recurring fees?

No. WiseBanner Fundamentals is a one time fee for a lifetime license.

What type of banners can wisebanner produce?

Static JPG banners and Animated GIF banners. Flash banners are currently not supported.

How long does it take to create a banner set with Wisebanner?

Can I control file sizes?

For static JPG banners, before exporting, you can specify the quality (80 is default). If some of the exported banners are too large, you can re-export them at a lower quality setting. For animated GIF's, there's a video in the How-To section that shows you how to adjust animated banners for the purpose of exporting at a lower file size.
