Apologies for the broken record (I'm a newbie, I've searched and searched for this answer, etc.!) but I'd love to buy the Builder theme for my new WordPress blog but need to know if I can I customize the header?

I want to change out the typeface, and add a scanned watercolor image. I've watched tutorials about the rotating pictures, I've looked all over the printed info and forum, maybe I'm calling these elements the wrong thing? If I can, I will definitely buy this theme and take the plunge into design!

Hi Deanna,

It is very easy to add a header image in Builder.

All you have to do is go in the layout, click on a button to add image module, specify the height of the image, browse to and select the image from your computer and it will get uploaded. Save the layout. That's it.

See http://ithemes.com/codex/page/Builder_Documentation#Image_Module

Thank you! I'm still trying to find out how I would incorporate a custom typeface that I've purchased into that header, but I'm thinking I might have to create an "image" with the illustration and type in it, then upload...

yes, that works and is generally used for header images/banners. If you wish to non-web-safe fonts in your design, you could lok at plugins such as <a  href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-sifr/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">sIFR</a>, <a  href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-cufon/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Cufon</a>, or <a  href="http://easywebcoder.com/wordpress-plugins/google-web-fonts/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Fontface</a>. (where the latter is preferred).
