Shiny new banners

I love the Atahualpa theme for WordPress! At first, I went straight to the Theme Editor to mess with the CSS, remove modules and text but all I saw were functions instead of CSS and I wasn’t going to muck around with those. But then I was looking really closely at modifying the theme for a work website and combed carefully through the Theme Options and it’s really fun to customize!

Aside from the highly customizable sidebars (which I have yet to configure fully), the most visibly cool feature is the rotating banners. It was really fun to go through my Flickr photos and running them through Piknik to get them the right size (1300 x 160 is an awkward size!).

These are the banners I’ve created so far. (You can click on each image to see the original.)
