Banner as Slider is selected by default in the drop down menu, you will want to change this to the Static/Video Newsletter Banner option.
An area will appear with an image, you can keep the image as it is if it suits your niche, or you can click the Add new image button to add an image of your own.
When adding your own image, you want to be sure that the image is large enough to fill the top area of your landing page, and you also need to make sure that the predominant area of your image is on the left.
The opt-in form will be over this image, placed to the right of it, so you want to ensure that the form does not cover up the pertinent part of your image.
Once you click the Add new image button, you will have a window open where you can upload an image the same way you upload images for your posts.
Once the image is uploaded, you will also be provided a blue Select and Crop button. Click this button so that you can crop your image to fit the theme.
The lit area is the area that will display once cropped, the darker area will be cut from the image.
Once you have selected the area you'd like to crop, click the blue Crop Image button in the bottom right corner.
Once you have done this, click the blue Publish button to save your changes.
In the next lesson, we will be creating and adding the opt-form for your landing page.
