If I am going to create my own banner for a header, what should be the size/dimensions of the banner?

While you are at it, is there an ideal size for the foreground image?

Thanks in advance.

This is a bit subjective. Artisteer lets you set the width/height of your header area on the Header tab. Then you can import an image from a file for the background of the header and another for the foreground. Generally speaking the foreground image can be smaller (like a logo).

Typically (lately) I've been designing headers at about 1000 pixels wide and less than 200 pixels in height...but that's me. Also - I make sure my foreground image is transparent (PNG32).

Lastly, Artisteer has an option to resize the header to fit the imported image.
