    HELP! I have been trying for weeks to add an e-book cover image I created my e-cover to the header of my Graphene wp-blog site. I added the image to media but don’t see an option to add it to my header, just pages and posts. I am extremely green at the whole website jargin and how to’s. I don’t know code or even want to know. I just want to know if it is possible to add an image or custom image as in my case to my header.

    Well, you’re going to need to know a little if you want to customise beyond what Graphene already offers, but in this case…

    I assume you meant the media gallery here, right? Actually, just go to Appearance >> Header and upload your image there. Just make sure that it is 960 x 198 pixels in size.

    I did try that though it creates a small rectangular box that I can’t adjust to the size I need. Is there another way to get this image onto the right side of the header. my site is http://www.bookmarketingvirtually.com

    It’s a book blog site that I am trying to create to get my Online Book Marketing Specialist certification.

    Why don’t you post a link to the image you want to use as your header image.

    Is there another way to get this image onto the right side of the header.

    Not really. But what do you mean “right side of the header”?

    Post that image link and I think we’ll be able to get to the bottom of this.

    I just want to get a pic of me and my book cover onto my header. Is this possible?

    Yes. But you will need to combine those images into a single image that is 960×198 pixels in size. You will need to use another program to do this–either Photoshop (good, but expensive) or GIMP (good, but free with limited/quirky support).

    You can get GIMP from here:

    I used GIMP to create the header image on my blog, BTW. For a free program, it is amazingly powerful.
