That's really sweet, thank you! :) I'm still trying to make the headers work on my livejournal (the code is easy enough to find on google, but it wont' seem to work for me), so if you work that out, let me know.

aww I love the dancing hippos banner, it's lovely! I'm so impressed you've got started on this challenge already :)

If you don't mind me joining a conversation I wasn't invited to lol, then the reason you can't get a header on your journal is that the style you're using doesn't support headers - ie. there's just no space for it to go in. You need a style more like mine if you check out my journal, there's a specific space for a header. Once you have a style like that, you can make headers that are the correct width for that style (ie. mine need to be 800 across) and then you can alter the code to include them. If you search for custom livejournal layouts you'll find some cool ones with space for headers :) I...hope that made sense haha :\

Thank you ^.^ I had a lot of time on my hands this weekend (read: a lot of homework to put off).

That makes sense about the headers! Thank you so much. Off to google...

good luck :) I got mine from http://scholarslayouts.livejournal.com/ if that helps, though I remember it took me aaages to figure out how to get it working lol!

hee, ironically I actually just asked sgafirenity a couple of hours ago to re-post the list we used to have of different art types and their dimensions etc as I couldn't remember them all!

Basically a header is something you'd put on your facebook page (850x315) or something you'd put on top of your LJ page (varying sizes, mine is 800x400). A header can also count as a banner if you want.

Other banners are anything that's wider than it is tall, usually. That includes sigtags (300x150, although they're not allowed on the Disney challenge), Friends Only banners (any size, usually around 600x400 or 500x300ish), color bars (5 icons in a row with a background and a bit of text, like the last two bits of art on this page http://theartshow.livejournal.com/495398.html), gifs, and probably some other stuff I'm forgetting! x
