This is a new feature we introduced in this month's TypePad newsletter - in which your intrepid community manager answers your most pressing TypePad questions.
How do I add a banner image to my blog? - question submitted by Meighan of My Love For You is a Stampede of Horses.
Meighan likes to have different banners for her blog, submitted by her creative guest artists, and she asked us about how to best make this happen easily in the new TypePad over in our Get Satisfaction forums.
There's a couple of cool ways to do this, and I won't dig too far into technical whizbang details, because we've got a super-slick updated knowledge base. Of course, you can always open a help ticket with your TypePad One support team, too - we're always here to help.
If you've got a plus account or higher, you can use the theme builder to help you along in this process, without having to muck around in the code.
Before we get there, though, you may want to start out by making your custom banner first. I've used Picnik for loads of photo editing. You can also check out our guidelines on sizes and some more details about best practices for your blog layout.
Want to make some adjustments to your banner easily without going into advanced templates? Just check out the highlights from Professor Wibbels' class on how to make sure your banner is fitting the way you like with just a few lines of custom CSS. (If I can do it, anyone can!) Pressed for time? Want someone else to help you build a new banner? Our experts are here to help, too.
Have a favorite banner you want to let us know about, or a blog designer you love working with? Please let us know in the comments.
