    rename what?
    usually you just need to edit the header.php file.

    If it's an image you have to edit it in some program like Firework (I mostly use Fireworks).
    It doesn't have to be a problem... Please PM me the site so I could understand what you have in mind.

    If u want to change header wordpress u can just edit header.php

    In wordpress 2.8 version u can edit headers much easier:

    Many themes come with custom headers that are included by default, changing them would require the users manually editing the theme, or in some cases using the theme options.
    However with WordPress 2.8 users can now add their own custom headers, you can upload a image and crop it before applying it as the header image.

    The custom headers feature will only work if the theme author has configured the theme to allow this capability, you can read more about the customizing headers feature.

    Really??? How about a link to verify this?
    There are too many themes out there that trying to "standardize" changing the header image would be a coding nightmare. So please tell me how this works...???

    I normally don't use code when making theme customizations, i usually mess things up. But I can recommend an online WP theme generator, it's called Lubith, which allows you to make several modifications to any selectable element - you can change backgrounds, add borders, apply opacity, shadow etc. I remove the site's title, description and menu and place instead of the header a logo, which works really well in minimalistic themes.
