    Hi everyone,

    I want to use a theme that will easily allow me to change the header image. I know nothing about html or coding...I just really want to be able to change my header image to something more personal!!!
    Is there a plugin that can help me? Is there a theme out there that will let me change the image easily?

    Thanks so much!!

    The default theme's image can be changed easily by substituting a graphic, the exact same size, and just renaming it kubrickheader.jpg

    Seeing how everyone around here refuses to provide a link to the blog they're having trouble with I'll assume the blog in question is the one linked in your profile.

    If you look in header.php you'll see that theme uses a series of images, each image associated with a particular page. Look under <div id="header_img"> and you'll see a certain image is called if you're on the home page, another image is called if you're on an archive page and so forth. Simply upload your new header images to the theme's images folder and adjust the image names in header.php accordingly.

    Alternately there are a whack of free themes at the WordPress themes repository.
