en WordPress.com Forums › Support HEADER IMAGE Author Posts May 7, 2012 at 10:09 pm #885243 fayenceMember Re: bahiasailracing.wordpress.com I want to change the header image to a different one. I added a new JPEG (BSRA NEW BANNER) to the library and tried to set it as the header. Although the image is only 960 x 114 pixels, the app wants me to crop it (so I’d lose the right half). Why is this? I thought the max header size was 960 x 200. This JPEG is within that limit. Even if I re-size the image to about 400 pixels wide, it still wants me to crop half the image horizontally. I’d appreciate some guidance. Thanks. The blog I need help with is fayence.wordpress.com.

That is not a “maximum.” If either dimension is less than or greater than those two numbers, wordpress will enlarge the image so that it can be cropped to the exact size required.
