    my wp-content/themes map? Maybe strange questions but for I don't come further. So if there is enyone who can help me out I'm more than happy! Here is also the link for my header. Thank you for your support ...

    1. Note down original headerimage size and create your header according to that size.
    2. just rename your here to kubrickheader.jpg
    3. put it into wp-content/themes/default/images.

    ok.

    1) Can I use this sice when the background is all black?
    2) Tried that and then I get errors so maybe can you please tell a little more how and what to do?
    3) Where can I find that map?
    I don't want to be a pain in the *** you know :)
    But I can't come further. Thank you again.

    header image is

    wp-content/themes/default/images/kubrickheader.jpg

    so you can do anything you want with this image.

    But where can I find it? I mean the
    "wp-content/themes/default/images/kubrickheader.jpg"?
    Also how do I upload my own header? That is also a
    question I don't figure it out yet.

    For example I find this:
    wp-admin/theme-editor.php?file=wp-content/themes/default/header.php&theme=WordPress+Default
    But no where I can find:
    wp-content/themes/default/images/kubrickheader.jpg
    :(

    okkkk........
    this is your header image's path.
    wp-content/themes/default/images/kubrickheader.jpg
    where your image is physically stored.
    here
    in default folder you have images forlder in which there is kubrickheader.jpg file which you can replace with your image(name should be kubrickheader.jpg).
    so, by this wordpress load your image instead of its original image.
    bcoz you replace your image on wordpress's image.
    i think you are not that much aware with wordpress and programming. thats why you face this problem.

    I understand why you must think that I have not much
    aware of wordpress. But I read all and nowhere I could
    find the wp-content/themes/default/images/kubrickheader.jpg part. So I have no clue where I can find it.

    Oke this is what I have done under the "Theme-editor".

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    <head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />

    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> <?php if ( is_single() ) { ?> » Blog Archive <?php } ?> <?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?>" /> <!-- leave this for stats -->

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> RSS Feed" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />

    <style type="text/css" media="screen">

    <?php
    // Checks to see whether it needs a sidebar or not
    if ( !$withcomments && !is_single() ) {
    ?>
    #page { background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v87/Roesje/roes3a.jpg") repeat-y top; border: none; }
    <?php } else { // No sidebar ?>
    #page { background: url("<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v87/Roesje/roes3a.jpg") repeat-y top; border: none; }
    <?php } ?>

    </style>

    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="page">

    <div id="header">
    <div id="headerimg">
    <h1>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>
    <div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>
    </div>
    </div>
    <hr />

    And nothing's changed afther that. Also in Firefox I see
    a diffrent theme then when I see it in IE. Yes I also made my cache clean. :) So tell me please. How can I come further? And thank you again for your support Ghanshyamgadh! I really appreciate it.

    dont open your wordpress in browser.
    i mean you have to open it through FTP.
    for example, how you can open your c:\ drive ?
    same way you can open your wordpress on your hosting server and follow what i have told.
