When I try to add my header image, even though it is the correct size, I am forced to crop the image. The result is an oversized and pixelated image. CSS file as the image default width as 495 pixels. If I import an image with only 100 pixel width, I still am forced to crop it, so you can imagine how bad it looks. On the header screen, it says if the image imported is 495 x 145 pixels, it will be used as is and not be cropped, but this is not the case.
How can I figure out what is wrong? Using Genesis 2.0.0, Minimum Child Theme 2.0.1
Open up your functions.php file. Look for custom header in there. Change the measurements in there to your logo’s measurements. Save it. Then go back and upload it again. It should NOT ask you to crop it.
This is the code that is in the functions.php file. No matter what size image I import, I am forced to crop the width by 50%. I am using a file that is 495×145. If I use a file 100×15, I still need to crop half the width,
/** Add support for custom header */
add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array(
‘width’ => 495,
‘height’ => 145
