Set the header background color or image

An image can be set as the background of the header. Text or other images that you add to the banner by clicking the pencil icon on the Pages tab will appear on top of the Header Image. The header image will automatically be scaled to fit the width of the banner. If the image used is smaller than the header, it will be repeated. The banner’s height is determined by the text and images in the banner — a tall background image doesn’t make the banner appear tall.

Change the color or image of the header

  1. Go to the Design tab.
  2. Click Customize to expand the set of choices for customizing your theme.
  3. Click Header Image to choose an image to be the background of the header.
  4. Click Header background to choose a color for the header section. The color is only visible if there is no background image selected.

To remove a header background image, click the X in the top of the thumbnail image on Header Image.

The header image and header color customizations are related to the theme. If you select a different theme, the background image you chose doesn’t apply automatically to the new theme.
