No problem, I recently made a short little tutorial for using Photoshop Actions if you want to learn a bit more.

I'm hoping to pump out some more original quality tutorials soon.

I like it. Very good for a first attempt too. I just wonder why are there 2 gradients on each side?

Thank you.

This is a very good first shot at a YouTube channel banner! My only little feedback is: maybe there is a little too much red? Your Elmo skin has black in it and you're holding a wooden axe, so maybe incorporate those colors into your banner more. Add some patterns, some drop down shadows or gradients. Overall a very good first hit!
