Adobe Photoshop CS5 Tutorial: Creating a Logo Banner

A company "logo" banner image is commonly found on the home page of most websites. When creating a website for a company, it is easiest to scan the organization's logo from their brochures or promotional material and then save the scanned logo image as a gif or jpg file.
