As you can see the size of the image should be 1000 x 288 pixels.

Then we can start up Windows Paint program and create an image of the same size.

You can do all sorts of fancy things and create an image that you would like.  Easiest way is just cut and paste images into Paint to make something you like.

For this example here, I will use the same image.

After that, you click Appearance – Customize – Header Image – Add new image, and choose the image you just created.


You have to hide the Site Title & Tagline, by choosing Site Title & Tagline, and un-tick the “Display Header Text” option.

This is the end result of my work.
