    Note that you can select the dimensions of the banner in pixels.  You can also select the Layout as well as the banner Position using the drop-down menus in each section.

  5. Select the BANNER you wish to change by clicking on the drop-down menu under the BANNER column.  If you need more information on changing the banner graphic, go to How to set the image used for the banner in OpenCart 1.5. Note that you can select ADD MODULE in order to add another banner setting.
