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.

It is a free photo editing site for you to make collages or alter photographs. You can create Facebook headers using a specific template.
You simply upload your pics and play.

I also use a site, IAZA. It has many other fun edits for your pics.

Back over to Iaza, and I had another play!

    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. Now, though I think I will – was wanting to design a header for my FB page using my cover image so I think you’ve just given me the solution! Thanks so much.
