A header graphics can be as simple or complex as you desire them to be. They are the first thing a reader sees when opening your site. A header needs to be striking and memorable and yet not distracting.
Web Design Header Graphic
For this site I have continued the theme as used in my other sites and kept the header graphic plain and simple by using a striking free font. There are many fonts freely available online that will distinguish your site fom the usual microsoft default fonts.
Once you have decided on a font to use you can create a header graphic using a free image editor. The font I have selected is the Sebastion Font. Using the editor select the size of graphic you require and use the font for the text. Save and upload the file to the image folder 0n your site.
