    My current header is 938 pixels wide by 250 pixels high but I want to decrease the height size to 180 pixels.

    My blog is – http://www.wotyougot.com/

    Is it as simple as re-sizing the image or do I need to go into the coding as well? If so which template do I need to alter ?

    By changing the height of the header will the rest of the page move upwards or do I have to change the coding elsewhere as well ?

    Thanks

    You need to change the height in your style.css file:
    Change it from this:

    #intro
    {
    clear: both; background: #fff url(images/teaser.jpg) no-repeat; height: 250px; padding: 20px 0 0 20px;
    }

    to this:

    #intro
    {
    clear: both; background: #fff url(images/teaser.jpg) no-repeat; height: 180px; padding: 20px 0 0 20px;
    }

    great ! i’ve changed that, now how do i get the rest of the page to move up – the advert and the two columns (main and left sidebar)

    You should try resizing that header image to be a height of 180.

    You can also play around with the: top: XXXpx in the following areas of that same CSS file:

    #quote

    It could look like this:

    #quote{
    	text-align: center;
    	position : absolute;
    	top : 280px;
    	left : auto;
    	right : auto;
    	width : 938px;
    	z-index : 50;
    }

    Do the same with #side_left and #main (they could both be 380px instead of 450px) and I think you’ll have what you’re looking for.
