Uploading image for header (2 posts)

    I apologize in advance because I know this must be really simple (and it's all the more frustrating because I have basic web mainenance experience), but where do I go to upload a new header image?

    The only place I can find to upload any image is in the WP Write a Post section, but that seems to be only for inserting pics in a post. All the WP docs and support threads I've read on this just say "upload the image to X directory" but how do I get there? I get the bit about making it easy on myself by changing my image name to match the default Kubrick image name so mine just replaces the default but where do I go to upload my img in the first place? I'm going nuts because I know this must be simple but I can't find it.

    I'd be really grateful for anyone's help to walk me through it from the WP dashboard.

    Typically, uploading is accomplished using an ftp client to send the files to your web space.

    Hopefully, when you signed up with your web host they provided you with ftp info. Thats what that particular info is for.
