Help Help! I've magnified the blog header !

Calling all blog header experts, digital scrap experts or any bloggers who knows what went wrong with my blog header....why sooooooo big picture appear?

Honey how do I shrink the kids?

I downloaded the pic as usual with the browser, then click shrink to fit and put behind
the blog title and description.

Not correct meh???

Please help me someone, please!

err... not sure about this, did you edit (reduce) the picture size before you upload?

maybe u wanna shrink the size of your pitures first, perhaps to around 200-300px before u add it to ur header. try that.

thnks all for the feedback and concern. I've tried reducing the size but the shape of the photo appear to be square like what noted by WEN. I use PICASA and Microsoft Office Picture Manager as i do not hav photoshop.

Hi Sanguine!

Thanks for downloading my freebies:) You need a software program that can handle the png and jpeg-files one use when scrapbooking digitally. Adobe Photoshop Elements is a really good one, but if you want something for free you can download GIMP here http://gimp.org/downloads/. I know a lot of people use it though I have no experience of it myself. I started with photoshop elements and now I use photoshop CS3 as I'm designing. There are other programs as paint shop pro, but I would recomend photoshop elements if you can afford it.

You can use www.picnik.com to reduce the size of it. Picnik is a free online photo editing site. I use it all the time.
