NOTICE: This process is not working in all RW themes. I have spent hours looking for the issue and a solution. So far none. If I do, I will post a new tutorial on this. Dec. 3, 2009 END NOTICE.
Adding nice looking header animations to your theme is easier than you might think.
This cast will show you how to build them into the theme, call up images from the built in images folder and adjust the animation to your liking. No Flash, Bannerzest or any other application. Just images and jQuery.
