Tutorial: Making a Photolog Header!

I like to display some of my favorite images in my header. I want that to be the first thing a person sees when viewing my blog so they know that I am ALL ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY! :-)

For this tutorial, I thought it would be smart to do a video tutorial because it is very detailed. I provide free templates! There are two different designs that I have. I was inspired by Allie!

My tutorial will be on the biggest one. You can download the free templates here: One row template and/or Two row template. BUT I still want to show you how you can make your own in case you want to design your own photolog header to personalize it.

Now, to upload it to your blog. I only know how to work with it with Blogger {Sorry!}.

On the main Blogger page, click on DESIGN.

Go to your HEADER > EDIT.

Keep these settings...
Browse for your header JPEG.


If it still doesn't seem right, your template might be to blame, which I don't know WHAT template design you have. You'll just have to mess around with it.
