Creating A Simple Blog Header


Hello everyone, 

So the last post we learned about moving blog header, today let's see how to create a blog header "image".. Blog header is the first thing people see when they come to your blog I believe it should be as simple as possible and cute too.. you know not too much flowers, birds etc... well it depends on how you like it :) Let's get to it...

1. I use picmonkey to create and edit pictures, so go to picmonkey, clict EDIT and select any desired picture from your computer this will be your background (in my case I'm using a white background)

2. Once you do this, it's your turn to get creative, there are lots of options to create a cute header.. I'll show you how to create 2..

1. Simple header with text
On the left side click on the 4th option to edit text, then click add text, type in your text and choose your desired font, change colors, increase or reduce text size.. When you are done save (save in .png)
--click the first option and crop your image (your image height and width is up to you (to check your blog width go to Template--Customize---Adjust widths)
example of header with only text

2. adding overlays
On the left side choose the fifth option, select any overlay you want (you can increase, reduce, fade overlays) edit till you are satisfied. When you are done save (save in .png) 
p.s you can also add you own preferred photo**
--click the first option and crop your image (your image height and width is up to you (to check your blog width go to Template--Customize---Adjust widths)
with overlays 
3. Now go back to your layout, click edit on header label, upload your image, check the box that says "Instead of Title and Description". Click SAVE.


You're done! As easy as that! Try it out! Any question don't hesitate to ask.. Have a lovely day!
