Making Twitter headers shouldn't be a hassle...

...yet here you are, looking for a new way to whip up professional looking headers in record time. That’s because most alternatives come with major shortcomings

Photoshop makes header design a chore.

First you need to figure out the proper image dimensions that account for Twitter’s profile picture and invisible areas. Then you need to spend hours learning the software and navigating through a maze of features you’ll never use.

Graphic designers are expensive and slow.

Twitter headers should be updated regularly. But when you’re dealing with graphic designers, you need to wait for your request to reach the top of their to-do list, and that’s if you can even afford a designer.

Most web-based design tools are clunky and difficult to use.

Plus, the best photos and graphics in their libraries, the ones you would actually want people to see, cost extra.

Now there's a better way...
