Find the name of the image and delete it and put your image there and name it the same name as the one you deleted.

To find the name of the image go into the index page of your forum and look at the source. There you will find the name of the image.

You have to do it manualy by going into:

templates/subSilver/overall_header.tpl

Go into that file and edit it there.
