Given so many positive responses to my previous discussion, I am attempting to replicate the basic format of my mother's site. However, I'm running into issues with the Themes I have installed allowing me to utilize her full logo size as an Header Image (I'm always prompted to crop her logo). Does anyone have insights into a free theme (since I'm only proofing the concept at this time) that would allow me to use her full-sized logo? (I know many here @ 48 Days recommend the Standard Theme.)
If all else fails you might need to "get under the hood" and adjust the css file.
The TwentyTen theme that comes with Wordpress is very customizable...especially since it's free.
You should be able to resize her logo to fit within most headers. Plus, you don't want site visitors to have to load a full size image/logo. Google is starting to demote websites if they have slow loading times. Check out www.photoshop.com, or Aviary.com to do simple photo editing.
