I use Photoshop and Illustrator.

I echo gimp. Probably the best free one out there.

I will have to look at it. I was thinking about using Gimp to make multiple headers each with the logo on the right and a qoute the left and let it load at random. (similiar to how GeneralsJoes does it) I have downloaded gimp and will try it out.

The size I am trying to get to is 870 x 220. I used gimp but sadly it only saves in it's own extensions that are allowed to be uploaded to word press

You should be able to export the image as the file type you desire.

It really depends on file type. You can do with .gif or .png (which I prefer).

I got it, It is a bit different than photoshop that I remember. It's the fuzzy tool instead of the magic wand, and i have to add an alpha layer first.

Still not 100% happy with the image i have up there, tried to go transparent, and it showed the blue on one side and the white on the other ! It's just the annoying settings on the free word press. Different themes are available, but not even allow a header image, and I can't edit them unless I pay.

Did you buy the upgrade to let you switch header images ?

Dang. I know when I chose the template I looked for 1) Editable headers and 2) The colors I wanted. That way I wouldn't have to pay :-)
