New Banner...almost.

I wanted to change my banner. No photoshop skills yet to speak of but I stumbled across Bannermaker. Fun! But...I couldn't get it to fit the blogger header space. Oh well, would've been cute. Wonder if I could make a banner in Corel Painter?

You can use any image as a banner, so yes, you could create it in Coral Painter. Save it as a jpeg and upload it from your computer into the header element.
There are lots of tutorials on the web showing you how to add it to your blog header area.
Make an image about 700px wide x 200 high and it should work just fine.
The image you created but can't get to work is 728 x 200 and if you click on it, the image URL is in your browser address window. Linking to that URL should make it show in your blogger header!

Good luck, you can do it!

I was going to give you some tips but YES all that June said! Hee... :o)

I love this illo! You should make it a banner for your blog. It's fantastic!

Thanks for the tips:) You'd think it would be simple but I still have a big white space on the side. I think computers can see me coming;)

christine grove said...

Yay! Figured it out. Not centered, but the white square is gone.

June said...

Your banner image is displaying over to the left side, because this template code is written to diplay that way.
I will email you with some help to sort this.

Thanks:) I couldn't figure that part out.

Love the new banner, it shows off your style well and also enlists a great visual perspective. Thanks for sharing.

I am happy to see you found a solution for the header image. There are so many ways to make the simple template into a blog of your own design... you just made the first step. The rest you can learn as you go along :o)
Well done.
