adjust header space vertical/ horizontal

  1. top o' the morning,

    i'd like to figure out how to adjust the size of the header. currently on the 2010 theme, the image space is limited, very short and wide. i'm looking for a more vertical option, so normal images don't have to be cropped or distorted to fit.|

    thanks a bundle.

    The blog I need help with is portageartist.com.

  2. You can do this without CSS because Twenty Ten has recently been updated to use flexible headers. To make a flexible header work, start by creating an image that is the dimensions you would like it to appear on your blog. Then make sure you are using a theme that has support for flexible headers (like Twenty Ten) and go to Appearance → Header and upload your image. When you get to the cropping step, click the "Skip Cropping, Publish Image as Is" instead of the "Crop and Publish" button and your image will be added in without any adjustment at the size you created.

    I have also updated our help page about flexible headers with a little more information so it's more clear:

  3. Thanks for the response, designsimply.

    I tried an image, but wasn't given the option to "Skip Cropping, Publish as is" just a seemingly mandatory "Crop and Publish".
