How to upload your header through photobucket

Level: Easy

There has been some problem through blogger that if you upload your header from your computer, it gets all blurry and icky and OMG if I don't get that fixed I am going to flip out-y. (well, maybe that's just me.) But anyway, IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT. IT'S BLOGGER'S FAULT.  And heres how y'all's can fix it.

You have to have a photobucket account. Not a flickr, a photobucket. Design your header however you want it (if you don't have it already) and then upload it.

Now, view only the header that you uploaded, and click the "Direct link" button. It will automatically copy the link for you.

 Now, you go to how you would usually upload your header. If you don't know how to do this, click here. But, instead of uploading it from your computer, click "From the web" which should be under the browse box. Copy the post into there and click "save".

If your header is perfectly centered, that is great, don't do anything from here. Mine wasn't, so i had to take these steps.

We are going to use some HTML. Don't freak out, it's ok. CTRL+F really helps. Click CTRL+F and in that box, search for [[><b:skin>. Directly before that, paste the following:

#header-inner img {margin: 0 auto !important;}

This should work! Now enjoy your perfectly centered header. (and non blurry.)


  1. I'm having the blurry header problem right now! I'm about to try this out! Thanks for posting this! I'm glad the blurry header wasn't my fault! :)

  2. Yes, I'm having the same problem with the blurry header. I figured something out that was a little more complicated than this lol.

  3. i don't really make headers, i'm more of a backround girl, but will save in case someday in need.

  4. Hey grace, i've been having trouble with that too and it works just as well (BUt VERY easier) if you go the Design/ Page Elements/ Header and use the direct link to get your header image "From the Web" lots easier and no HTML:)

  5. @Allie, yeah, it's pretty frustrating. @Kinga, as long as it's works it's great! @+Flamingo Pink+, great! making headers is fun. @Libby, the only HTML is centering your header if you need to, so no HTML is really needed unless you're super picky like me. :)
