    well im assuming i know how to do this cuz it sounds pretty easy.. open the header in photoshop slice it up then save it for web... or open the header image in photoshop or watever software u got, cut it into 1/2 or 3/4 whatever and save each peice as there own file like 1.jpg, 2.jpg, etc.. then set up a table with 4 cells and set those pics as the cell bg's

    make sure u set the cellpadding, cellspacing, and border to "0"


    hope i didint confuse u and this somewhat helps

    Save them to different qualities. Make it so they don't look stupid though.

    This optimizes speed, greatly.

    Thanks for the reply.
    When loading my page, the header still takes a long time to load. The largest slice of the header is 12kb ...... have I saved to too high a quality?

    Any quality value between 50-70 usualy optimises well but it's a case of trial and error. You should also save each individual slice using the most approprite format.

    ie GIF/PNG for flat areas of colour and JPEG for lots of colours / gradients / photographs etc.

    If you uploaded an attachment of the header itself it would give us more information to go by; you seem to be in the right direction at the momment.
