Messing around with Photoshop

I was messing around with Photoshop and I came up with this image of my son (click to see a larger image).

New Header

I've been messing around with changing the header of my blog. Do you like it? It took a while to make one I liked (I made about 3 or 4), but I think I'll stick with this one for a bit.

I made the header in Photoshop and I'm hosting it at

I had to change the code in the template to use this image. The code is in the #HEADER-WRAPPER section of the template code. Just cut and paste your URL for the header you want to use in place of the URL that is already there.

I also had to add the HEIGHT parameter to make sure the header was always the same height. The WIDTH parameter is the same. I didn't change that.

I also removed the background images in the Sidebars. They didn't look right with this header. I actually just commented them out so I could put them back in easily if I wanted to.

I also made a neon one that I like too. I may switch back and forth. Not sure. :o)

3-Column Template

I changed my blog template to a 3-Column version. It took some doing, but I finally got it. I got the instructions on how to do it from this site:

Blogger Buster

The template they edit on this site is different than mine so I had to figure out the difference. Then I had to change the background images to fit the new width.

I think it turned out ok, though.
