This is why I will be taking computer graphics classes very soon

Made a new journal layout, not happy with it ;p

I don't like the two white spaces on either side of the banner but I can't make it wider, it'll distort it! I do like the color theme, it matches Harry's shirt :3
I want this thing fixed but I just don't have the skills! I want those white spaces gone for one thing and I would love if my journal was one of those things where you can scroll all but the header, no matter how far down you go, you see the header. I've n journals like that, I would love that! I also don't like the whole stretched look of my journal. My previous layout (the Dan one) had a nice look, not stretched. That isn't a big deal though, the other two are my major issues.

I'm also fighting with my Paint Shop and Photo Shop to crop my image so I can make nice icons. I can crop the picture, but then you can't see the details! It's driving me mad!!! I feel better about my crappy graphics skills by looking at the icon I made the other day (the one I am using). I'm pleased with it. Then again, all I did was crop and add a border...and for some reason you can SEE the picture! Major props to whoever recognizes it!

I don't know if this will help because I'm not all that great with livejournal customizing either so this might not be what you want to do. Go look at my journal and see how the image doesnt move when you scroll it? (It's not a banner though I don't think) when you go into "edit Journal style" then pick "custom options" and "images" then it will say background image scrolling and if you pick fixed it won't scroll the background. but like i said this might not help with a header. :)
And I don't know what your icon is I dont think

No it won't work for mine because it isn't a backround image. Thank you for the help though, I know what to do if I do get a backround image :]

The photo is from a story from a series of books called Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark
I read them as a kid and some of the images freaked me out so badly! The stories themselves were fine but the art? *shudder*
There's this other kids book called Terrible THings that kind of freaked me out too. I didn't know why, the story was sad and a little freaky but I wasn't easily frightened as a child. I found out it's the same illustrator...no wonder!
