Custom Header Image

You can add a header image to make you blog more attractive.

NB different themes may work differently. For example they need different sized images or may not support header images.

The Twenty Twenty-two and Twenty Twenty-three themes that support site editing do not support Header Images. You can achieve the same effect using the Site Editor to edit a template.
