WE WILL RESIZE THE IMAGE AT THE END, BUT A LARGE WORKSPACE IS EASIER TO WORK WITH.

OPEN YOUR TUBE AND EDIT >COPY.

Select Left Click OK

Select Right Click OK

Select Downwards Click OK

Phew!

Select the font of your choice and the colours patterns of your choice to add wording.

I recommend you have your font settings as Create as Vector as this creates a new layer.

Position your text to the height you require and then use the following command to centre it.

Go to Objects>Align>Horiz.Centre in Canvas 

MERGE VISIBLE LAYERS.

Finally resize your image down to 250pixels.

OPTIONAL

Select a colour from your image using the dropper tool

Fill bottom layer with colour (Raster One Layer).

Select Image>Picture Frame and choose any frame.

  I used Edge Brush 4.

Finished!
