    OK, that was a little scary…

    I am NOT a coder of any kind, but I found the entries you referred to (both values were at 110px) and made the changes you suggested. Saved the file with my fingers crossed, and BINGO!

    It worked!

    I have no clue at all what this did, and frankly I don’t care to know. 🙂 I’m an author, not a developer!

    Many thanks!

    I’m having the same problem with the header images. They are cut off at the bottom and (I think) right hand side.

    I tried the AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild and no change at all.

    This all started with the upgrade to v1.6 on my site at http://www.melodeeaaron.com/blog

    Actually, I did as Luko suggested. Sort of…

    I used FTP to download the “stock” images I wanted to keep, then used the APPEARANCE>HEADER panel to upload them as my own custom images. After that, I set the RANDOM radio button on that page for the UPLOADED IMAGES.

    Now here was the tricky part…

    I had to go to APPEARANCE>GRAPHENE OPTIONS>DISPLAY>HEADER DISPLAY OPTIONS and uncheck the USE RANDOM HEADER IMAGE box. If this was left checked, the “stock” images were, as Josh said, still included in the rotation. With it unchecked, the rotation ONLY includes the images I have uploaded.

    It now does just EXACTLY what I want it to do!

    Again, thanks to Josh and Luko for the help!

    That did the trick, Josh…

    Thanks so much for your help to a card-carrying non-techie. 🙂

    Hi, Josh…

    So all I need to do is go to the folder “wp-content/themes/graphene/images/headers” with FTP or my host’s CP (I can handle that!) and delete/rename the files I want no longer to use, upload the new ones I want to have, and Graphene will use the files in that folder in a random rotation?

    Why does that sound too easy? 🙂

    When I look in the above folder, I see 2 files for each “stock” image…one named (for example) “fireworks.jpg” at 960×198 and another “fireworks-thumb.jpg” at 364×80. This leads to another trio of questions…

    (1) By “rename”, do you mean to rename them to something without a graphics extender? Something like “fireworks*.jpg.not-used”?

    (2) If I wanted to be rid of the Fireworks header completely, would I delete both files?

    (3) When I upload my new images, would I need to put two files in the folder? That is to say, would I upload a file named newheader.jpg at 906×198 and a file named newheader-thumb.jpg at 364×80?

    Again, thanks so much!

    Keep Loving!
