    Can I use a different header for selected pages on my twentyten theme?

    Yes, you can! Simply upload an image and click the link to set it as the "featured image". WordPress will automatically crop the image and use it for the header on that page. If you don't want it to be cropped, create an image with the size 940 x 198 pixels (I think that's right I'll double check when I get home tonight). Khios that helps.

    Where does one click on the link for "featured image" in the Twentyten theme?

    Thanks.

    Perhaps my question was not clear. I want a different header on my pages than the one I am using on my home page.

    Ideally, the Products/Service page will have a different header than the one on my home page.

    Can that be done?

    Hi, have a look at this article- http://www.bloggingtips.com/2010/06/24/featured-image-wordpress-best-underused-feature/ it explains how to set a featured image.
    All you do is set a featured image on any page that you don't want to use the default image.

    So on the product service page you set a featured image, and that will automatically be used as the header image.

    Wow, I never knew that was there. It is underused.

    Thanks for the help and Happy New Year!!

    No problem. I love the feature, and other themes are starting to support it now too.

    Happy new year.

    This doesn't work for me. I have a pic set as featured image and it has not automatically become the header for that page. In fact, I cannot find anything to make it happen.

    @keryans
    please post more information:
    what theme?
    size of your featured image?
    (in twenty ten, a minimum width is neccessary for the featured image to be shown in the header)
