I was inspired by another teacher, and I want to encourage all of you to make your own custom header (photo) for your blog. Your header is one of the main things that defines your page and tells others the kind of person you are. Also, by creating a custom header, you avoid any copyright issues.

First, where’s your header?
Go to: Dashboard > Appearance > Header >Upload

Second, what should you upload?
Anything! You should either use your own photos or use a creative commons site such as Flickr.

How can I better customize?
Try using a quick, free, and easy site such as Picnik to arrange a collage of photos (I recommend the set of 2 or 3 arranged horizontally). One thing to keep in mind is the size of your collage. The header for my theme is 760 x 190 pixels. You can also use Adobe Photoshop CS5, which is on all of the ICS computers.

We’ll go over these specifics the next time we’re in the lab.

Happy creating!
