So, did anybody notice....?

I had a go at a custom header today. I thought it would be easy - you know, come up with something fab in Photoshop (at which I am a rank amateur) and then just go clickety-click and VOILA!!

Alas, Blogger ain't that sophisticated. You can only add an image to the existing header, you can't actually whack in your own fab banner. Bugger it!!

So, several hours of editing, resizing, and farting around in the Dashboard, and I have a half-arsed version of what I envisaged. *sigh*


Oh, and also? I got pissed off at Photobucket and created a Flickr account. So - check out my sidebar! More to come.....

I did notice the new header ... nice! And I checked out your garden photos, excellent photos I must say. Hope you had fun taking them! Won't it be nice to turn that friggin big pile of dirt into something spectacular!! Like a frog pond for the boys!!! You won't need the creek.

Yeah I noticed Kerryn. I thought how clever 'cause I've been trying to do that too & so far all I get are gigantic headers or ones I don't like. I still think you are a clever little bunny.

Hmmm there must be a way! I think Kathryn uses Blogger and she has a kick ass custom banner thingy. I haven't used Blogger for years otherwise I'd have a go at the code for you!

Btw, your dirt looks COOL! Your own dirt, complete with tadpoles. That's brilliant :)

Well, thanks for the compliments, gals. :)

Shauna, you're a GENIUS - I shall email Kathryn tout-suite to pick her brains on the finer points of blog customisation...

Deb, if you need help, just yell - I can do some basic stuff with Photoshop if you send me the pic and tell me what colours/themes you like.

Chris, ta for the compliments on the photos. I still say that it's all due to my brilliant Canon camera...I'm nothing but a hack photographer. I LERVE the macro setting...

Ooooo I love it! Don't you feel great every time you see those pics side by side? That NEVER gets old. :)

Deb said...

At least you did it (and it looks great!). I am NOT the techno savy girl!!

I also found the same thing with blogger. I once spent ages coming up with a header in photoshop and ended up giving up trying to get it onto blogger ... grrrr!!

Looks like you are more of a pro than me tho ... looks great!!!

I did notice and I was wondering how you did it. I don't have Photoshop.

I love all of your updates, recipes and the dirt factor as well.
Keep it coming :)

Hugs
