bewitching. : (30 November 2015 - 06:51 PM) 1st December tomorrow YAY!
ferlybadinage : (30 November 2015 - 06:16 PM) Ugh I made one to the specs but it didn't work as it just stretched it and cut out half the graphic? So I'm going to remake tomorrow to the smaller specs. I can't graphic today. Just not happening for me :(
ferlybadinage : (30 November 2015 - 02:18 PM) I have to have a specific theme, so I guess I'll just copy that header into a new psd :) x
enchantedx : (30 November 2015 - 01:33 PM) and I always start my searching from this blog...awesome blog...and it have links to other great theme makers too. hope its helps a little :)
enchantedx : (30 November 2015 - 01:30 PM) i often stalk theme makers bloggers on tumblr. then i take the theme i like, and copy/ paste it to my tumblr (they are strict with credits) then if the layout have a header, i just save the picture to open it on my program, so i can do my own header in that size :)
herz&seele : (30 November 2015 - 01:13 PM) i thought i hit enter,,, app not. it depends on the theme. most themes will specify, others it's guessing. esp if they're responsive :/
