Freebies for Cutline

One thing (among many) I love about the Cutline Theme for WordPress is the ability to use custom image headers.

At the moment, my folder of custom headers is bursting. As a result, I’m releasing a number of them under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 Unported License for you to use on your own Cutline blog. Attribution in this case is linking back to my blog in your blogroll. (Title: The WYSIWYG* Blog and the Link is http://justjennifer.wordpress.com) Please note that these headers will only display correctly at 770pixels by 140pixels, which is the default Cutline theme header. At any other size these headers will appear distorted.

In order to use one of my customized headers, you will need to save it first to your own computer. Click on any thumbnail below to open the full-size header, right click on the image and “Save As” to save the image. Then in your blog’s Dashboard go to Presentation > Custom Image Header and upload the header. (WordPress FAQ) Please note! Uploading a new header will replace your existing header, so backup your old custom header before uploading the new one. These headers are being offered “as is” without any warranty, actual or implied.

If you understand how to use CSS and WordPress’ HTML Write Editor is a friendly face, you might also be interested in reading this page on how to style your images in Cutline.

Update 2010/08/10: WordPress.com has dropped Cutline from the themes available to its users, ostensibly on the grounds of its license after being purchased by SmartMedia. Regardless, if you are using Cutline elsewhere (i.e. outside of WordPress.com), you are welcome to use these headers as described above. Cheers!

  1. Hey, I love the ability to change header, too.

    I try to do this every time I post, to tie in with the topic.

    And it gives a quick visual clue that there’s new material posted.
