Travel Tip: New York City

Website Header Images Available

Because I have been so impressed with the free Cutline Theme from Chris Pearson. I’ve decided to release 10 header photographs for the theme under the Creative Commons Attribution/Non-Commercial License. You are free to use any of these images for your blog or website if you properly attribute Captain Hops with a link back to somewhere in your theme. You may not sell these images or claim them as your own work.

Click on the small banner to see the full size version. I have cropped the full size images to 770 pixels wide by 140 pixels high to match the default in the Cutline theme, but you can use these images in any theme you want. The Cutline Theme website has good instructions for customizing your header images and adding random header images. Be sure to check them out.

Please leave me comments and bookmark this page if you enjoy these banner images. If the response is good, I hope to release many more in the future. Let me know if you have any questions or requests.
