Enlarging your header image in Imbalance2

    Hello,

    Does anyone know how to make the header image in Imbalance2 to go across the screen?

    Check out how cool http://thepatternedplate.wordpress.com/ is.

    I want my image to stretch across the screen, and I do have the "custom" package.

    Thanks in advance

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

  2. Try this:

    #branding {
    background: url('YOUR_IMAGE_URL') no-repeat;
    width: 1000px;
    height: YOUR_IMAGE_HEIGHT;
    }

    Make a 1000px (or whatever width you'd like) image to use for the header, upload it to your media library, and copy down the image URL. Then replace YOUR_IMAGE_URL with the one for the image you uploaded and replace YOUR_IMAGE_HEIGHT with the height of that image.

    Thank you for the help, I can see the image now stretching across the screen. If you dont mind, I have a follow up question. The image is just showing the top corner of the pic and not the whole image. How do you scale so that it fits?

    Thanks again

  4. WordPress.com has a neat built in way to resize images. You can add ?w=1000 (or another size) to the end of an image URL to do it. Like this:

    http://theweekendgolfer.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/scottwebswing4.jpg?w=1000

    That image resized is 1000 x 475 pixels. That's pretty tall for a header image. I would recommend cropping it to a more reasonable size before uploading it.
