The Header Image, also known as the hero image is a large web banner image, generally placed in the front and center of the Home page.
If you are experiencing issues getting the Header Image to display it is most likely an issue with the overlay color opacity. See this article for instructions on How to change the theme colors.
To set a custom header image, navigate to Appearance > Customize > Header Media. You have the choice of uploading an image or a video, either by uploading a video to your site or by using a YouTube URL (recommended). The recommended dimensions for header images are 1920px x 1080px, an aspect ratio of 16:9 although this is not required.
If you have chosen to use a video, the header image will be used as a fallback while the video loads.
- Click Add New Image Button to upload your desired image as background (Note: If you prefer to use video as background, you can click on Select Video link to upload your video or enter a youtube URL. )
- Click Publish to preserve your settings.
