Nevermind. I think I know whats happening. The image is loading within the body behind the theme components. I am trying to create an image that peaks around the StationPro theme, an entire PAGE background. Is there anyway to have entire page background that the theme sits on top of? Here is an example of what I am trying to accomplish. ->

Nice mockup.. Yes absolutely this is possible. With only a little CSS customization too. You just need to set the body background and delete/comment out the bgred, bggreen, rules in the css. We might cover this in an option in an upcoming update as well

What about a custom header? I tried but I cannot the header image to line up with the header menu area nor can I find the correct width to use.

There is no 'correct' width, although the themes are all set at a width of 960px.
