    As suggested, I am creating my own topic to get some help.
    When I upload my header at size required it gets enlarged.
    Please help me solve this matter.

    Just wanted to check - are you cropping the image to 2500 × 600 before uploading it?

    hmm:

    Surely there must be a way to autoscale the header image so that it fits various resolutions?

    I didn't like the default ratio, so I modified the highwind-functions.php page to use 2000 x 400.
    Uploading new images will autocrop to this scale instead, and (I think) looks a lot nicer.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Any chance you could post the code you used in the functions.php to do that stephenc709 ?

    @stephenc709...Yes, that would be helpful. I have the same issue too with the header.

    2500 x 600 is too much for the header

    I only changed the pre-defined variables. Perhaps these don't exist in different versions? My specs are:
    Using WordPress 3.9.1
    Theme: Highwind 1.2.4

    Steps:
    From the WP Dashboard, go to Appearance -> Editor and edit the highwind-functions.php file. For me, I changed lines 16 and 17 to be:

    'width'=> 2000,
    'height'=> 400,

    Save the file. I then followed the routine steps to uploaded a new header image (which automatically crops using the new dimensions), and got a better look for my header.

    Hope this helps.
    Cheers!
