    Is there/what is the recommended dimensions for the image used in the header?

    Hi Rebecca,

    With all of the different file formats and resolutions, I usually just go through a trial and error by uploading the image to the PDF format and then creating that PDF. I use a Mac and they have a good tool to easily resize an image. I typically notice that the image provided renders to large and I have to resize it to make is smaller.
