This is how to add a picture, or make one, and put it as your YouTube background...

I would recommend using Mozilla Firefox!!!
If you do not have it, please download the newest version here:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

There are THREE ways to do this!!!

The first way might not work after a while because, if the owner of the site you got the image from removes it or changes the name of the image on their site, the image will not be viewable on your YouTube channel, I recommend using the Second or Third way.

First way (Borrowing an image)-


Step 1: Find an image (Example: Google Images)

Step 2: Then right-click and push 'Properties'

Step 3: Then Triple-click the URL at the top

Step 4: Go to your YouTube channel (Ex: youtube.com/user/MrPacMan36)

Step 5: Click 'Edit Channel' above your YouTube account information

Step 6: Go to 'Channel Design'

Step 7: Scroll down until you see "Background Image (URL)"

Step 8: Right-click the empty box on the right of that and click 'Paste'

Step 9: Scroll all the way up or down, and click 'Update Channel'

Step 10: Click "view your public channel"

Second way (Taking an image from another website) -


Step 1: Go to a site with the desired image, right-click the image and click 'Save-as'

Step 2: Go to http://imageshack.us and click 'Browse' then find the destination of your image and click 'Open'

Step 3: Then click 'host it!'

Step 4: Scroll all the way down to 'Direct Link to image'

Step 5: Click the URL once (It should highlight it all with one click)

Step 6: Right-click and click 'Copy'

Step 7: Go to your YouTube channel (Ex: youtube.com/user/MrPacMan36)

Step 8: Click 'Edit Channel' above your YouTube account information

Step 9: Go to 'Channel Design'

Step 10: Scroll down until you see "Background Image (URL)"

Step 11: Right-click the empty box on the right of that and click 'Paste'

Step 12: Scroll all the way up or down, and click 'Update Channel'

Step 13: Click "view your public channel"

Third way (Using your own image)-

Step 1: Go to http://imageshack.us

Step 2: Click 'Browse' then find the destination of your image and click 'Open'

Step 5: Click the URL once (It should highlight it all with one click)
