Uh, this is not very helpful, there is already a Joomla thread that coveres this 
without the tedium of how to create an image.

The key idea is REPLACING the image, not creating an image. The typical application 
does NOT have images in the required weight and height sizes. 

How do you change the template to accomadate that? A simple change to Milkyway 
doesnt do it, as the top menu will overwrite a large logo image.
