    Do some research on "Custom Post types".
    You can create a custom type for your home page that will show the image only on that page, in the same way that some themes have a slider only on the home page.

    I would either recommend a front page slider, that will only add it to the home page or making a new template for your theme.

    To make a new template: Open your index.php file and copy everything in there into a new file and on top of everything, add this:
    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Homepage with Slider
    */
    ?>

    In the code, add your header image where you want it (probably in a div tag below the navigation divs). Save the file as say: homepage.php
    Once uploaded via ftp, you will be able to choose your template in the panel on the right hand side when creating the page.
