    How do I change the header image in this theme: http://wpthemesplugin.com/

    I suppose I need to upload an image to my webhost then link to it. Confused, please help, thanks!

    Yes, you are correct, you will have to upload your image somewhere. You could even hypothetically upload it to Flickr or Photobucket if you wish.

    Are you familiar with uploading images to a webhost? Basically the easiest way to do this would be to download an FTP client like FileZilla and enter in your ftp information. Once you do that, make a directory/folder called "images" and then drag the image you want from your desktop to the "images" folder you just made.

    Once you do this, you have to figure out what the link is. If you were to make an "images" folder in your hosting, then your link would be:

    <img src="http://www.nameofyoursite.com/images/nameofyourimage.gif">

    the image needs to be 901×150pixels and a gif it looks like. If you want to make it a jpg, you need to make sure your file name says that (replace gif with jpg). Does that make sense?

    From there, you should be good!

    Hope that helps!

    Probably the best way to do this would be to upload an image to your themes 'image' folder with the same exact name of the old image overwriting it.

    If you wanted to creat a new image link then try this:

    upload an image to your themes 'image' folder and link to it this way:

    try something like this where you want an image to be placed:
    <img src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/me.jpg" alt="picture of me" />
