Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a custom header image, part of WordPress Themes: Customizing Themes with Genesis.
- [Instructor] In this lesson,…I'd like to show you how to do one…of the most common customization requests I see,…and that's customize the logo or the header area.…And I'm going to start by showing you how to add a custom logo.…Now assuming that you're logged into your WordPress admin,…you could just click this Customize button,…and that would bring up the WordPress customizer.…You'll click this for Header Image,…and this is going to give you a recommendation…of what size you should use for your header.…In this case, it's 600 x 160,…but lets say that your logo is a little bit different…dimensions, how would we change that?…We can head over to our functions.php file,…and if I scroll down here there's going to be a bit…of code that deals specifically with that header,…and here it is on line 95, Add support for a custom header.…
And you can see that it's got a width and height specified,…and that's where this is coming from over in the customizer.…So lets say that I want to make the width 650 pixels,…and 300 pixels high.…
