    Hi,
    I have been trying endlessly to figure this out ... your help is greatly appreciated!
    I created a 764 x 184 px jpeg image for my header (for a background image)and I cannot find a way to insert it.
    Thank you in advance for your help...

    What theme are you using? I am using the WordPress Default 1.6 by Michael Heilemann

    I went on Youtube and found a lady using the exact blog theme, as me, giving step by step instructions for adding your own logo. I am really new at this so when I learned that it needed to be done with an FTP method, I was totally lost. My room mate, the computer wiz kid helped.

    Anyway We had to use an FTP application. The video on Youtube was very helpful. I remember her mentioning the name of her site as WordPress For Women.

    Hi Jordy,
    Thank you for writing back. I have been using a theme for the last few months for my blog. Now I want to create my OWN theme, my own image for my blog. Right now I am in the middle of uploading my image to my FTP site under the themes folder. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I am getting there... Any more ideas?

    try to change kubrickheader.jpg with your own image in style.css file:

    #header {
    	background: #73a0c5 url('images/kubrickheader.jpg') no-repeat bottom center;
    	}

    or you can rename your image to kubrickheader.jpg then replace the original image.
    This work for me.

    Yea, this is what we did with the FTP

    Rename your image to kubrickheader.jpg then replace the original image

    I guess this only works if you are using the Michael Heilemann theme with the Kubrick header

    Here's a tutorial on how to create your own theme.
    You need to have some html/css experience though and know how to build a website.

    http://www.jonathanwold.com/tutorials/wordpress_theme/

    It was very useful for me to get started in the theme idea. It will help you to create a simple theme/ change the layout of the default theme.

    I must say that the theme I find best to edit and change is the Cutline 3-Column Split theme.
