Add image header to blog"New feature from blogger"

My blog image header

Blogger just added a new feature to it's template page and that is add header image option,i was about to write a trick on how to put a header image on blogger,and today as i was getting ready to write that,i simply checked my layout page and was surprised to see that google added the feature already,i am sure it wasn't there yesterday!,so here are a few tips on how to put your own header image on blog.

  • Go to template page>edit html
  • Click on expand widgets
  • From the html code find code like this

    #header {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 25px 60px 160px 160px;
    color: $pagetitlecolor;
    background: url(
    no-repeat bottom left;
  • Now from the above code copy the image url i.e( in this case copy and paste to address bar and save the image)
  • now open the image with photoshop or paint make your own header without changing the resolution of the image
  • Now save the image
  • Go to template layout click on header edit button seen in picture
  • Now from the window that opens upload the header you made from computer
  • if you have already made a text in your header image then tick "instead of title and description" and if else you just have made the background then tick "behind title and description"
  • Save and publish
I am designing image headers,anyone interested in a free image header please comment.
