The previous guide went over installing a Concrete5 theme from the marketplace. In this tutorial, we will show you how to change a header image in Concrete5. Header images are important in Concrete 5 because it is the first impression visitors get of the site, due to its predominate position. It also appears site-wide, meaning it will appears on the top of every page on your website.
Typically something that represents or symbolizes your brand, or the service / product you provide would be used. The size of the header image used in the default template is 960px × 212px, this is not required, but take note of this since the image will display as is. This means if it is a square shaped picture instead of a rectangle, it will display as a square.
