Can I use my own images for the Header Image? If so, how do I upload it? I like this theme a lot and want to use it but if I can't put my image in I don't think it will be suitable.
I see in Atahualpa Theme Options under Header Images, it says "all header images are located in /(theme-name)/images/header" Please tell me where to find that. I am really very green about all of this. Thank you!

I can see where we can ftp up new images to be placed in the /atalhupa/images folder (directory)
must the images be a certain size?

Must they 'fit' within the same width and height of the existing images?

Must we rename our images to IMG_1496 etc to get them to rotate?

you can have the images what ever size and name you want...within some practical limitations
(read http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=321)

in pratice, your header image should be no bigger than the area you specify for the header image, which is defined by your maximum page width (ATO->Style & Configure Layout->Layout MAX width)
and the header image height (ATO->Header Image->Header Image: Height)

The other thing is the quality of the image. You want the quality to be as small as possible, but still look good (see your imaging program for explaination about this). This will make for as small a file size as possible to speed loading time of the page.

Have fun
