How to Customize Your Blog Header

1. Open a program such as MS Publisher where you can insert clip art, pics from the Internet, text, etc.

2. Create the look you want by putting text on top of images and/or clip art. You want the entire thing to be pretty small on the page. (see example, left)

3. Once you have created it, drag your mouse over the entire image and highlight everything. Right click and select the "group" option. This will make all the individual elements become one.

4. Right click on the newly grouped imaged and click "save as picture." I always save as a JPEG.

5. Now got to Layout, Arrange Elements and click on your Header box. You want to insert a picture here. Select 'Instead of title and description" and 'shrink to fit.' Then browse for your saved image. Let me know if you have any questions.
