    1) In using the theme "twenty ten" is there a way I can change font and placement of both the title and tagline?
    2) I tried to upload a photo I scanned to use as the background image. When it showed up it was tiled 6 times instead of just one image. How do I avoid this?
    thanks!!!!

    first you have to learn to make child themes
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    The reason is, twentyten is the default theme to WP, so whenever you upgrade WP, twentyten is overwritten.

    So without a child theme in place, your changes will be lost.

    You can make a very basic child theme as that tutorial shows, and just use the import rule to call to twentytens css, or you can copy all of the style.css to your child theme

    #site-title {
    	float: left;
    	font-size: 30px;
    	line-height: 36px;
    	margin: 0 0 18px 0;
    	width: 700px;
    }
    #site-description {
    	clear: right;
    	float: right;
    	font-style: italic;
    	margin: 14px 0 18px 0;
    	width: 220px;
    }

    This bit of code is what controls the title and tagline. You could change fonts here as well as placement by adjusting margins

    As for your BG image, isn't there an option when uploading your BG image to not have it repeat?

    Hi, I'm also wanting to change the site title in Twenty Ten in either of the below 2 ways:
    - so that the header logo goes over the top of it (the header logo has the customer's custom text design) OR
    - change the font, text colour and size of the site title so substitutes for the header logo

    Then put the tagline below the header instead of above it or next to it.

    Can I do all that if I learn how to make child themes and change the Twenty Ten style.css? I've never done that before....
