Help! Blogger beta problems

I'm trying to make a new layout in the beta format and I am having terrible troubles getting my banner image to show up. First it showed up too small and now it won't show up at all. Anyone who could help is most appreciated. The image I want to use is located here: http://bp3.blogger.com/_tlbBVz9vEmQ/RX8voKvunaI/AAAAAAAAAA4/HPkXVSZClJg/s1600-h/w.jpg

Thanks in advance!

I tried doing this a while ago and as far as I recall I had to add a new header item widget and put the image in that. I don't think you can edit the pre-existing header although you can probably blank it out.
In the end I gave up!

I'm hoping someone would tell me too! I want my image, not some google pre-generated one!

To make things worse, I have been trying to edit the new beta page at home with my mac (using Safari), and the stupid visual editor thingy won't drop panels when I pick them up, so I end up with them all over the place.

I am going to have to try it with my friend's PC in a few days :(

Hey - just in case you haven't noticed, I thought I'd let you know that your image coding is showing up as your title in bloglines. I have no idea how that would have happened but you may want to look into it!

Also, Blogger Beta is being really shitty with the logging in today. What's up, Google??

I changed the header html to false, removed it, then added a picture element as my header. This kept everything centered for me. Then I expanded widgets, added a link to the picture element that functions as my header and called it a day.

It took me forever, but I can find the specific sections if that's the route you want to take. There's likely a more elegant solution, but I tend to go the hard way. :)

I do like the blue though!

I note you're using the minima template, as do I. I just put my image in straight into the html of the page. Ergo:

"#header-wrapper {
width:760px;
height:197px;
margin:0 auto 10px;
background:url("http://bp3.blogger.com/_tlbBVz9vEmQ/RX8voKvunaI/AAAAAAAAAA4/HPkXVSZClJg/s1600-h/w.jpg");
border: 1px solid $bordercolor;
border:1px solid $bordercolor;
} "

But without the quotes around the outside. You might have to adjust the height in here to fit your image. Hope this helps!
