Foreground logo in header without padding?

Post by benjaminb » 17 Apr 2013, 19:04

Thank you for the Suffusion theme
I've recently started using it & really like its flexibility and all the options.

My site under construction is:

As stated in Skinning > Header > Minimum Height of the Header image
The minimum header is 55px high by default. You can change this setting if you have a header image needs to fit.
Note that both above and below the header is 15px of padding, making the effective minimum height of the header 85px.
My question is:

Is it possible to remove padding above and below the foreground image in the header?

My goal is to use an 85 pixel high background image
and insert a clickable 85 pixel high foreground logo in front of the background (in the white area on left)

At present I am forced to put in a 55 pixel logo
If I put in a bigger logo I get a header that is higher than 85 pixels
