    Hi MathildaM,

    To move and expand the header-image add the following code to style.css of the childtheme.

    #callout .callout-area {
        padding:0px 0px;
    	margin:0;
    }
    .content .content-pad {
        padding:0;
    }
    
    #callout .callout_image img {
        width: 100%;
        margin-top: -25px;
    }

    !!NOTE!!
    ALWAYS Make a backup of your site, before making any changes!!

    1. Use FTP to backup the files.
    2. Make sure to also backup your database.

    4. Use a childtheme to make the changes in
      Suggestion: use the 'one click childtheme plugin'.
      Don't make any changes to a theme itself. Instead make the changes to a childtheme. Should the author of your original theme update the theme, your changes will not be overwritten. Your site with your adaptations will remain intact.

    You're welcome. BTW you only need one childtheme, this one.
    How to use the childtheme?

    1. Use FTP to access the files of your site and it's childtheme.
    2. Use NOTEPAD++ or proper EDITOR [not wordprosessor] to edit css and php.
    3. Make the changes in the CHILDtheme!
      - copy php files / css-file(s) of the original theme [as required] to the childtheme directory and edit them as required.
