    Whatever size fits your website layout.
    Just don't make it too high pushing the main contents down the page.

    468x60 is the classic size, since this suited both monitor and bandwidth size when the Internet was young. Today, I am usually using something along the lines of 750x150.

    depends upon website layout..since many people still use 800X600 screen resolution, your image and website layout should be generally about 760px and height preferably less than 120px. As for the image size since the header displays at first while the page loads, it should be kept small size less than 75KB.

    Try to make it for 800x600 layout. This way the majority of users can view your site.

    Everyone seems to have their own opinion on what they like. Therefore it is up to you!

    And just to add to the confusion, I use one that is 960x150

    I personally go with 200x80, but whatever works for you and your users...

    It depends on type of layout you want. You target users, type of website either a portal look or a fancy broucher site and many other factors comes into play.

    People still using 800x600 should be ignored. Gamespot goes wide, facebook goes wide. 800x600 is leaving forever (;


    Header size by the way... Just make the layout first and see what will look best. Then use it. I've never created the header size first...

    http://agnarson.com/ I'm using a pretty large header there for example. (resized it 200px on the height for 1024x768 users.)

    AlxDesign, if that's truly how you feel, then may I suggest you take a moment or two to read The Definitive FAQ on Screen Resolution?
