    Hey everyone I'm trying to make the main image on my site fill in the black region. The problem is that the custom logo area only allows a image to be 960px (I think that's the width), and the black portion you see is the background color I selected. Any help would be appreciated. My site is www.therecomplife.com and the theme I'm using is the paid theme Lucid, but I didn't pay for the support documentation.

    I don't quite understand the question or the problem.

    the only thing I can tell is that you didn't do your transition to BLACK around the edges far enough in.. you can still see the edges of the image ... if you bring that transition in just a bit... you should get the effect of the image blending into the background.

    if that's not what you're going for, please provide more details

    open the image in photoshop and redo the gradient fade from black to transparent. Take the black fade a few more pixels in so the edges don't show so much.

    you could also try a css gradient

    2000px wide is a very very large image to extend across the top of your page. If you're using a template that doesn't let you resize, then I would say you're stuck. Can you make the background an image instead of just black?
    I would recommend you cut the image down to the standard 960, make the gradient work for that size, and call it good.
