How Make My Blogger Header Image Wide

There are two ways to widen your header image: widen the image itself, or widen the entire blog. The first is a little trickier than the second. Choose what works best for your blog. The widened header image stays within the Blogger body template, so you do not have to do any coding or change the rest of the blog's size to accommodate the larger header. Use an image-editing software program such as Photoshop to alter the pixel size of your header.
