HELP!

Okay, I need help bad! I am trying to change this blog look, and I cannot get a photo to fit this header, does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I will be the first to admit, I suck with computers, and right at this moment I am despising it. I also cannot remember how to change the color of the fonts on the titles....2 years and I am going brain dead! Can anyone help this sorry soul? Yes, you can laugh at me if you want!!!

You're not going brain dead - Blogger keeps changing everything...
I just went into the setting for design - and I can't find anything anymore!!!
Sorry that I can't help!

I'm assuming you're using the templates/etc. and not coding from scratch?

To change any font or colours using blogspot, click on Design, Template Designer, Advanced, & then select "Post Title Color" and then select/enter in what colour you want.

I don't quite understand what you're trying to do with the header/picture part though? Are you trying to stretch it so it fits all the way across, but it just won't go? If that's the case, I'm guessing the photo itself is too small and has to be bumped up in size and reuploaded. If not I think I'd need a more specific explanation of what you're trying to do to figure out how to help!

Hope that helps :)

Sharon,I think everything depends on the template you have chosen. I'm not sure which one you have. But normally the header should be 760px wide. The heigth is up to you. let me know when you have more questions. Fingers crossed this helps!

Gotcha! I have a tutorial on just that subject. Email me if you have any questions. I'm a blog designer wannabe. :)

I haven't read your comments so someone could have answered the font color question. You go to designer, then advanced. scroll down until you see the font (example: header) and to the side it will give you color options. You simply click on the color you want. click apply and you're done. If it's NOT working, you can go into html to change it but that's a whole other story.

I usually play with my header photo in Adobe Elements or my camera editing software to crop it approximately the right size and shape, add text and give it a try in blogger. Blogger tells you the size it requires so you have a go by. My way is pretty much trail and error... Good luck!

Oh; I feel your frustration. I am SO computer phobic and always have to ask for help to do some things and Blogger does keep changing things. I usually put my photos in Photoshop and just go by the seat of my pants - truly! xxoo

I haven't changed anything in Blogger lately 'cuz it's too scary. Must say, Sharon, I DO love your new header, and I think it looks great! Hugs, Terri xoxo
