LOL! I'm such a dweeb - but thanks! Now I'm trying to post a photo at the top of the page above the journal heading ... any clues? I'll get there in the end but head has already exploded once. Am running out of gaffer tape to keep head together!

OK adding a header is a little more tricky as you have to go into the Journal customization pages until you get to the Custom CSS tab.

Then you need to make sure the right boxes are checked and write in the correct code and the easiest way to explain that is to show you this screenprint of what mine looks like. You need to replace the url of my header with the url of yours wherever you have it saved (e.g. upload it to photobucket which I would totally recommend and the site is really easy to use and has lots of handy ways of letting you link to stuff). You also need to make sure the height is correct in pixels or your picture will look skewed. You should be able to determine the height of your header in a graphics program - if you don't have one you could send it to me and I could look at it in photoshop for you :)

So click on this and if you have any more Qs let me know!

Good luck - if you find that doesn't work let me know! It's sometimes different for different layouts. Is this one based off flexible squares? The code I posted above should work if it is :)

Hiya poppet - yeah ... I trolled through EVERY SINGLE journal template (hubby thinks I've gone potty!) but flexible squares was the only one that worked for me :) I seem to be besotted with green and purple at the mo'. I got the code written in a halfish sort of way, but just couldn't get the pic to show more than about a centimetre at the top of the screen ... but at least I got that far! Playing with code is so far in my distant past it may well have never happened - LOL!

So grateful for your help ... have to go out today, but I'll play with it tonight! Woo-hoo! Now, if only I had photoshop - and actually knew how to use it - I could go berzerk - LOL! Looking forward to playing. Thanks!! <3

If you do want to get Photoshop there is the cheaper version, Photoshop Elements, which is all I have and is really user-friendly. There is also gimp which is free and downloadable :)
