Hi,

To change the banner image:
1) Click on the white instruction box that says "click here to change banner image"
2) The file manager will open up that will allow you to browse your computer for a picture to upload.
3) When you are done, click "ok" and your own image will replace the default image
4) If the dimensions are not quite right you can fix this by choosing the "edit with Picnik" option in the file manager. Picnik is a web-based image manipulation tool that has an option for you to resize your image. When you are done, click "save to SynthaSite" and the new image will replace the old one.

Please note that the white instruction box will only appear in editing mode, and will disappear when you preview or publish your site. Also, you may use the default banner image if you wish.

Many of our templates do offer a different background colour, so click on "change style" to see if the one you are using offers that feature.

Hi hearts_circles,

If there is no white instruction box, this means that the banner of that style cannot be changed.

If you wish to have a your own banner, then you will need to choose a different style.
