Problem with My Header – Gray Overlay.

    When I created my header I was using an old Macbook. After changing into a new Macbook retina-ready, I noticed that my header background has turned gray and is a little blurry compared to the old screen. I can’t figure out why. When I go to my customize page, I find that the header file has a white background, which I have specified in Photoshop, as it should but when I upload it, it turns gray again. Aside from that, the text is also a little blurry and I would like to optimize it for retina display. I don’t know if the problem is due to an update that the theme underwent or it’s something from my end. It was working before.

    Can someone help me please?

    The blog I need help with is stormintcup.wordpress.com.

    Hello,

    I’m taking a look at your site right now. Can you explain what the header image is supposed to look like? Because I don’t quite follow what you mean by it being gray. What I see is a full-width white image with gray text on top, is that what it is supposed to be, or is there supposed to be color? Here is a screenshot from my machine: http://cl.ly/image/3s1X2a233310

    As for the retina aspect, that is not something that can currently be combated because when you upload an image it crops it to a 1120px width. Normally I would say you just need to load a larger image to make it “retina” but that wouldn’t help in this case since it gets cropped down. Typically this isn’t an issue when adding a decorative image to the header, but since you have text it does ‘pixelate’ on a retina screen (I have a rMBP too so I understand the battle ;) Sorry bought that :(

    Let me know about the gray issue and I’ll see what’s up!

    Thanks,
    Caleb
