Header Image Size

Hi! When I upload a new image as a Tall Header, Weebly automatically zooms in on a section of the image. Is there a recommended size? Tried finding an answer, but nothing I found in the help forums helped.

 

Thanks,

C

Re: Header Image Size

Are you seeing the zoom in the editor? Or mobile or desktop view? Can you also post a link to your site so the community can take a look as well?

The zoom is visible in the editor and live sites. The image appears normal, but it is actually a cropped version of the image I uploaded.

Re: Header Image Size

Cropping of header images is normal depending on the size of the image vs the general dimensions of the header area. I think your image looks great, although I don't know what the original looks like to compare.

Re: Header Image Size

What are the typical dimensions in pixels or inches, or tall header size, and shorter header size? I want to edit my image in photoshop to fit the header correctly so I can make the text in my image correctly. Can someone please state what those dimensions are? 

 

I've looked up so many of these and there was never a consensus to the header dimensions.

Re: Header Image Size

It's hard to give an exact answer because the images will resize depending on the device you are on. Also, it sounds like you may be on an older theme, but we can take a look and see if we can get you pointed in the right direction. Can you post a link to your site?

Why is there not a recommended size to fit a liquid header? Why can't I "reduce" but only see a control to "zoom"? My 800 px wide picture is unable to be cropped, or moved, or reduced to fit.

Normally for header images you want something larger than 800 pixels; it's not uncommon for the header area of a site to be 1000px or more on a laptop screen, and sometimes higher on larger monitors.
