Making a Header for Your Site and Other Picture Edits

Someone asked me how I made my header for this site, and for The Virtual Bookcase, (WordPress removed the suspension and agreed the site was genuine!). Anyway, I noted that WordPress suggest 960 x 260 pixels for sizing. Then popped over to my favourite playground, PicMonkey.

    Thank you so much for sharing those sites. I don’t have any real photo editing software so don’t tend to bother playing around with photos much.
