I’m trying to enlarge the area allowed for the header image. Currently it is set to 1140 x 100. I’d like to allow any height and not have it auto-crop. Any help would be appreciated.
Change the height values in functions.php (Line 17) and style.css (Line 193).
/** Add support for custom header */
add_theme_support( ‘genesis-custom-header’, array(
‘width’ => 1140,
‘height’ => 100
margin: 0 auto;
Thank you Brad, worked like a dream. Is there any way to let it not crop? If I have images that are too short, it blows them up and then crops. Some are give or take 30 pixels either direction.
You might want to layer them on a background using a tool like Paint.net or GIMP if you don’t use Photoshop.
If they’re the exact same size as your settings, they should be displayed as is.
Brad, I’m having the same problem.
I have the settings in my CSS and functions.php, exactly as you’ve shown them. My header image is exactly 1140 X 100. I can see it in the media library, but it won’t display on the pages.
If I use a smaller-sized image (all I really want is a logo 172 x 50) it gets blown up to an enormous size and I’m forced to crop it. What happended to the skip cropping option?
Any help will be most appreciated.

Header text is still showing, but a header image is set.
I just layed a logo 172 x 50 on 1140 X 100 background using Paint.net and it worked perfectly.
Use a white or transparent background.
Brad, thanks for the quick response!
I am using a transparent background.

Oh, I just tried displaying it in a browser and I get an internal server error. It looks like this might be an IIS issue.
It should work. Check your settings under Appearance > Header and if the dimensions match your image, upload it.
It’s working now. It was a file permission error.
Thanks for your time, Brad.
