I Figured Out How To Get My Blog Header The Way I Want It!



I really like my blog layout here which was customized for me, except I would have liked to be able to change my header and colors sometimes. Now, after three years of blogging, I finally figured out how to do it! I figured out to change the color of my layout background, I have to use HTML color codes and just replace the code for yellow with a code for a different color. The only problem was the I didn't know how to change the header to match. Now, I think I just may have found a solution.

First, I finally discovered how to make a collage in Photobucket so now I can change my pictures from time to time if I want, and the color of the grid as well! I am so excited about this!

Second, by resizing it to the widest with, it fits perfectly across the top of my blog. I can add my blog title and any other text right to the collage. Then, just save it to me computer so I can upload it into Blogger.  (To save it to your computer, just right click on the collage and choose "save image as.")

Third, to get it as my header, all I had to do was go into the "design" tab in Blogger, choose edit header, pick the option to use picture instead of blog title and description, choose the shrink to fit box and upload my collage photo. It worked! I am so happy about this that I decided to make a video to let others know how to do it. The key is to find the "create collage" tab which is located under "Home" - "tools" - "image editor (click on "try it now"). I took notes on this for future use.

I’ve been searching on the web trying to find ideas on how to get my personal blog site coded, your present style and theme are wonderful. Did you code it your self or did you recruit a coder to get it done for you personally?
