How to Widen Your Blog Title

I found how to widen my blog over at the Letter 4.  The link to their tutorial is here.  It is very, very helpful!  I used it to make my blog wider, and I am loving the amount of space!  The problem I had was figuring out the width that I should crop my blog title to, since the right side did not match up with my "pages" section.  I cropped many different sizes and finally came up with one that fit perfectly!  I want to share how I did it!

I started out with this image, that I made in Photoshop Elements.  I haven't used online photo software much, but I bet it would be easy to figure out on their programs.

My blog size is currently 1300 px wide.  The size I cropped this to that turned out perfectly is 1220 px X 275 px.  I am so happy with how it turned out!  Depending on your blog's width, you may have to try out a variety of sizes until you get what you like.  I cropped, saved, cropped, saved, etc.

I am no pro with this kind of thing, but I would be happy to try to answer any questions, or help you find the correct size!  I do know how to do that!
