I figured a good number of people will want to replace their header images on this layout. It's very simple, but you will need the image hosted somewhere, like Photobucket or LJ's Scrapbook feature. The original header image for each theme is a different size, though each are approximatly 1000x200px.

In the "Custom CSS" box, put this:

#header-inner {
background-image: url(your_image.jpg);
}


If you have any questions, I'm willing to try my best to help.

How big is your image? This is just replacing one image with another, not adjusting the size. Your image looks like it is taller than the default. You can either change the size of your image, or change the size of the container, which I'm not sure how to do.

This is the URL to the header. This is as small as I could get it =(

This is awesome, and it worked great except that there is a line under my header image. Do you know how I can fix this?

It looks like you header is not quite as tall as the original header. My suggestion is to either make it larger by ~10px, or make the header container smaller. Sadly, I don't know how to do the latter, since the HTML and CSS is pretty complicated in Expressive.

Hmm.. see, I thought the same but I made my header bigger and it still didn't fill that line. It's like one pixel and it's killing me because I can't figure out why it's there!

How can we make the space that's allotted on the page for the header bigger height-wise? For example, what if I want my header to be 1000x400?

I've been having a bit of trouble, would you mind helping me? ;__; I've got the code within my Global Head, and I'm using the mixit layout. I'm confident that my code is lacking, but I'm not quite sure which part... Any help is appreciated ^__^
