Hi guys,

I am editing my selected banner immage in Piknic and am adding a fading coulour on the edge, trying to make it look blended in with my actual background colour (still working on this....!?)
I am having much trouble re-sizing the banner, my banner ad says 'Recommended Image Dimernsions 900 x 125 and although i can get pretty close to that without distortioning the image, it doesn't load the entire picture in the banner, rather half.

Help!

I am having the same problem. I am using the Tastelessly
template. The banner dimensions are 978x263. I resize it in Piknic, but is about 1/2" short

Hi Harry

Did you edit your banner through Picnik through your site builder? Try going directly to Picnik and upload your image and then resize to the exact dimension. Then download and upload into your file manager. See if that makes any difference.
