Header woes

So I like the new simple design from Blogger.  I've always wanted to simplify my blog's look but I can't seem to find a way to make the photograph in my header wider.  I can't even see how to edit the blog title and subtitle.  I'd like to expand the photo over to the extreme right to eliminate the burnt orange colour.  Can anybody help?


  1. I'm not sure how to manipulate these new templates. I have an issue with some of my sidebar stuff that I can't seem to change either.
    If I figure out anything I'll let you know.
    Nice new look for you.

  2. you might try re-sizing the image to the header size to the size of the template -- can't really tell without actually going into your template and taking a look

    I'd be happy to do that, just send me an email

  3. Always have lovde your picture.
    That could just be the layout of this page for some reason.
    When I first did my header the page layout wouldn't let me go across either.

    Several people I read are having blog problems, from being kicked off to a content warning pop up.

    If I do any changes, it will be when I am in Japan... I can ask my son to help me.
    He already can log onto my computer from Japan to help when I run into problems. Thank Goodness !

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Hi Lisa,
    Thanks for your offer. I did just what you suggested--resized the photo and it works. Now it looks a little out of focus but at least I know how to do it.


  5. Gosh, we had the same problem. I believe Allison ( I am totally useless with this stuff ) ended up cropping the photo shorter in I-photo. Which templet did you use? I was having trouble with the advance settings when I tried to change things like text or link colors. That is when I accidently applied the new templet on my blog.

  6. Hi Ches,
    I used the simple template and I later found out that you can still use the old settings from the dashboard to add or delete header photos. I resized my image to be wider and then imported it again. It seems to work.


I really appreciate your comments.
