I'm really new to using this software but is there a way i can get a random header image each time my blog loads? I'm currently using nifty corners template.

I do this here http://www.ecol.org.uk (hit refresh to see different header images)

what you need is a file called rotator.php which you can get free here:

http://automaticlabs.com/products/rotator

drop the rotator.php into the folder same folder as your images and then call in up from the skin CSS like this

div.pageHeader {

	padding: 0px;
	margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
	height: 120px;
	background: url(img/rotator.php) no-repeat #FFFFFF;
	background-position:left;
	}

in this instance my images are in www.whatever.com/img

you can call up random images using HTML like this:

<img border="0" src="http://www.yourdomain.com/yourdirectory/rotator.php"  />

As far as I recall I did no config on the rotator.php so long as it sits in teh same directory as the images but there are instructions in the php file and on teh website
