In Twenty Eleven 1.2, where would I find the images that appear at the top of the blog -- in what folder?

I know one of the images is called 'lanterns.jpg', but I can't find it or the other ones.

Here's the site: http://richardclunan.com/

Can I suggest to visit borgyborgy.net It offers some free 1000x288 pixel size headers, to customize default TwentyEleven theme. Useful for blog beginners. It allows you to easily customize a standard installation, allowing a newbie to have a customized and ready blog in a few minutes.

They are in the /images/headers/ directory. Here they are in SVN.


Full path: /wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/images/headers/

i still can't find that...where's /images/header/ ? – Richard Jan 23 '12 at 17:07
How can you not find them? I Linked to them. They are part of the Twenty Eleven Theme; thus the /images/headers/ directory is inside the Twenty Eleven Theme directory. See updated answer. – Chip Bennett Jan 23 '12 at 17:09
you will need to use ftp or the file management system of your hoster to access these images. – Michael Jan 23 '12 at 17:20
thanks -- i found those images on my server. I was confused with the SVN thing, but that full path got me it. thanks chip – Richard Jan 23 '12 at 17:22
