    Bro you are amazingly talented. But if you are going to give tutorials. You need to remember people are here because they do not have the same knowlegde as you. Talking as fast as you do is super frustrating. Add that to his fast you move the mouse. It makes for a very unpleasant experience.

    EPS is a vector file format used in Illustrator. Vector formats use math and trigonometry to determine forms in an image. It makes the image scalable without losing clarity.

    my dude you are talking in this tutorial way to fast. Its a tutorial not a race. You need to realize that the people that come here dont know what they need to do. You need to slow down

    Your video is meant to teach people how to make a YouTube banner. You are moving too fast and there is nothing annoying as rewinding and pausing the video all the time. Slow down when teaching.

    This is very useful for learning, but for a serious YouTube channel you might teach us how to make the banners background, not just take stuff out of google. you might use that as reference but if you use copyrighted content in your banner (channel art) without permission from the copyright owner it is subject to removal if the owner complains (in which case you will also be penalized for copyright infringement).
