How wide should my banner image be in a fixed layout design?

To determine what size of banner would work best with your design, go to Blogs > Design, and click the Select a Theme link, then Theme Builder.

At the top of the page, under General Page Settings, it should have something like this:

Column Widths
Left: 150 pixels
Center: 500 pixels
Right: 150 pixels

In which case, the example design would be 800 px wide. TypePad adds a 15 pixel (px) border around the banner, so:

800 px - 30 px (15 for right, 15 for left) = 770 px

To be centered on the design, the banner for this example should be 770 px wide.
