How to Add a Photo to a Blogger Header

The header is one of the first elements users notice while visiting your blog. It typically consists of text, an image or both. Blogger’s default header consists of a text message and an optional slogan you set up when you initially configure your blog. However, you can personalize your page further by adding your own photo into the mix.

Step 1. Choose your photo. Remember: CC Licensed.

Step 2. Cut it out. You can use Picmonkey:

Step 3. Check the width of your blog (Blogger: Template>Customize). For example: 1200 px.

Step 4. Go to Resize and type the new width. Do not forget to Keep proportions!

Step 5. You can include the title of your blog on the image. Use Tt icon.

Step 6. Save the new edited photo.

Step 7. 
  1. Go to to view your account’s dashboard. 
  2. Click the drop-down arrow located to the right side of your blog’s title and select “Layout or Design” from the context menu. 
  3. Click the “Edit” option within the header section, located toward the top of the screen. The header typically contains the title initially given to your blog. 
  4. Select whether the photo should be placed behind your blog’s current title and description or whether to replace it entirely. 
  5. Additionally, click the check box stating “Shrink to Fit” in the event your photo exceeds the blog’s height and width.
  6. Save.
Step 8. Click “Save” to effectively apply the photo as your blog’s new header.
