Google’s cache and two browser tabs will probably help you figure it out. 😀
First, I went to Flickr’s Creative Commons archive and grabbed an image that was licensed Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike. Second, I went to colr.org and got some color values from the image. Third, I edited my theme’s CSS to use these color values. Then I mucked around with the theme images with an image editor, smudging the lines with the water droplet tool. Last, I uploaded the CSS and the images to the server.
Thanks to my friend Lenny Ramirez for the idea of using a beach image, and pointing out colr.org to me. He didn’t like the previous theme color scheme and was quite vocal about it! He was quite helpful with the ideas, actually. ** rolls eyes **

U R RUNNING ON WORDPRESS

and if things gets too easy u could implement changing colors with the seasons lol
how about a script that updates the image based on the country that the visitor is coming from?? woot.. hey im on this programmer blog but the header image is from my country!!! weeeeeee hehe
that wouldn’t be so difficult
what would make it really creepy is an image of their neiborhood and a pointer on top of their house rooftop lmao…look!! this is how safe you are in the interwebs!! lmao
