Header or Banner:
I create this in Photoshop Elements.
these directions on Pioneer Woman’s blog. I think it took me around 3 hours the first time. Then I got more comfortable and it now takes me about 20-30 minutes depending on where my creative juices are taking me. (-:
Since my settings are at maximum width, my banner can be 920px wide and I usually make it between 200-300px tall.
Here's an early one made in Picnik:
This month's took about 20 minutes. Improvement! Prioritizing! (-:
Putting your banner on to your blog? Here are the deets. [First you should know where your header/banner is...on a website? on your desktop? in this or that folder?]
Go to your Dashboard and to Design
A pop-up will pop-up.
Make sure that you click the "Instead of Title and Description" button, unless you want the Title and Description to show up over your picture. That could work too. I also check the "Shrink to Fit" box. I don't know why...just 'cause.
Your header should preview in the pop-up window.
OK, what's next? What do you want to know? I have links to tutorials that I found helpful on other blogs...and that's about it for now, so if you want to know more let me know!
If you don't...you don't need to let me know. Thanks.
