Reducing the size of a banner on a template

Hello all! I am not much of a programmer, so I have been having issues working on something for my boss (I am an intern for new.xchanges.org). I having trouble with editing the skin of the website. It is a template. The banner is simply too large -- it pushes necessary information below the fold, and could be reduced to perhaps two-thirds of it's original size. Of course, I do not know how to do this either.

Do you guys have this issue? How can I rectify the issue?

@xchangesintern I have been cheking your site, and there is not a "banner". The big image displayed at the header is actually a background image set to the body of the page (http://new.xchanges.org/skins/myskin2/img/background.jpg). You can replace it by a smaller one from the back-office using the File Manager, if you have the right permissions in the site, of course.

However, you will also need to do some CSS adjusments to reduce the height of the #header.

Regards!

Oh wow! Thank you so much @mgsolipa -- that's a lot of jargon that I wasn't aware of. I will have to learn more about that. Thank you! :)
