WP Save Custom Header


This plugin is DEPRECATED with WordPress 3.2. Since its functionality is incorporated into WordPress core, this plugin will be no longer supported!

It lets you save and reuse your uploaded header images.

It will save your images to the images/headers folder within your template folder.
In the Custom Header menu the images will then show up as defaults, together with your other registered custom header images.
