My favorite way to make a slide:
My favorite and quickest way to make a slide is using powerpoint.
The default size setting when you first open powerpoint is exactly the dimensions you need (10"x7.5").
Open powerpoint and design your slide.
First save as powerpoint (".pptx"), so you can revisit and make edits if necessary. This can also serve as your template for all your future slides.
Then save your current slide as a (".jpg"). To save as ".jpg" you would click "File", then click "Save as", and change the "Save as type" near the bottom to JPEG. Make note of the location you are saving it to, so you can later browse and find the slide to upload.
