Additional comments? Base Image

Copy and paste the image [always the top layer]. Align left.
Crop and resize the base image to fit the icon. :D Duplicate the bottom layer.
Manip the background using cloneing, cropping & pasteing, etc. :D
Take that duplicated base image and align it to the right. Set it on Screen 21%.
Add text and you're done. :D

THIS TYPE OF BANNER MAKING IS GOOD FOR: Banners in which you can duplicate the background and are given the rest of the image to complete the banner.
