Yeah, the lack of filter menu in my version of wordpress derailed me.

I don’t have the same option within my wp 2.7 either?

You are saying that there are more options and I agree.
But some features aren’t tagged correctly. For example this one.
Since I saw this video (the same day that WordPress Tv was announced) I been searching for a theme that can do this to study the code and do something similar on a theme that I’m working on.
I’ve downloaded around 5 to 10 themes with the custom header tag and that uses an image (or at least that’s what it looks like from the screenshot) but no luck.
Maybe you should also add a tag or category to this videos for wordpress dot com only tutorials.

I want to change the header title. For some reason it is capitalized (not by me) and I want to change the font. How can I do that?

The picture i’m trying to upload doesnt seem to work. I made a picture on paint and when i upload it, it says “File type does not meet security guidelines. Try another.” The picture is also exactly 904 X 160 for the Digg 3 Column theme. Please figure out what i’m doing wrong.

We’re using newest WP version hosted on our own servers and there is no filter option. Further, I’ve look through hundreds of themes and haven’t found one that offers the ‘edit header’ options you show here. Are we all missing something or are there plug ins we can add for filter feature and for edit header feature?

I’m using Cutline. I wanted to replace one Custom Header (metro.jpg) with another (rt2-library4.jpg) and all the steps seemed to go as expected, including cropping the image after uploading it.
But it isn’t appearing on the blog. I can’t discover why not. Any suggestions?

More on 5/20’s post: The blog is http://metrocommute.wordpress.com/. I also tried to upload a pre-cropped image. It is 731 X 139. Still didn’t appear.

I have custom image. I brought up the new image and cropped but then there is no way to post it so we now have a default image. How do I get the new image to stick?

I have an image I have resized to fit the required dimensions (for Blix 690×115) Even though the image says it will fit, it insists that I crop the image. This happened even when the image file I used was 395X48 pixels. Why does it insist on cropping an image that small when it says it can accommodate something larger?

I need answers..we all need answers..I wont repeat what 15 or 16 people have already said..
I have sent an lengthy e-mail to ” email@example.com ”
just today about the very same issues all have expressed..do we need to wait on solutions from the WP.org programming team..if so then say so..
don’t want to waste any body’s time I also don’t want to wait for solutions to these issues that will never come for a while, at least not now..which is the most pressing moment I have with WordPress.ORG/.2.7.1 ???????????

Not helpful at all. My question is: Why after going through all the steps EXACTLY as you have stated, I still am not able to change the Header Image at all? This is despite attempting more than three times and trying to trouble-shoot what exactly went wrong. However, all my efforts still do not bring the desired result as depicted by you! Can you please help me solve this problem? Thanks.

Can I change/ update the header of the Albeo theme. I just want to add a tag line and I can’t see a way to do it.

I’ve seen some wordpress blogs in which the header changes different photos with each reload or change of page or post. How can I do that? Thanks!
