header image display issue

Hi everyone,

i've got the daily theme installed on my site. i have an issue with the header image not being fully displayed. the menu bar immediately below it is up too high. i can't find a way to turn off
the menu, nor can I move it. as stated in the theme options "Images of exactly 970 × 80 pixels will be used as-is"... which it is, exactly.

noticing the size of the space available, i resized my image to 970 x 60 (not 80 high) and uploaded. the theme then made me crop the image so i've got the same image i had before i resized it (it's cut off by 20 pixels at the bottom).

any ideas?
