Crop Photo for Header Image?

  1. When I go to upload a photo for my Header Image, it doesn't give me the option to "crop" my picture before I publish it (the little dotted lines to move up or down). Why can't I crop my photo??
    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is dawnbeachy.wordpress.com.

  2. I pre-size all images offline to the required dimensions prior to uploading them into my blog. That means I don't waste my upload space and there is no loss of image quality.

  3. That is an option, but in the past I've always been able to "crop" the photo like it suggest. Now it doesn't give me the lines to move. I wonder if I have some settings set wrong??
    I may just have to pre-size first. Do you know the dimensions??

  4. On the bottom of your theme is a MistyLook link and when clicked it connects to the theme description. The header dimensions are The header image is 780 by 189. It's also listed here http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/custom-header-image/

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    If you are, please do these:
    (1) Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050
    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    (2) Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    (3) Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    (4) Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If you aren't sucessful, let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using and post any error reports you get.

  5. Thanks for the advice, but unfortunately I'm not very techy, so I'm not sure how to do all that.

    I think I'll just have to go with resizing in another program before uploading. :)

    Thanks for you help!
