How to change the front page pictures

Hi, this is my first day with wordpress. I’m finding it difficult to change the default pictures on the front page from a woman with a phone at a table and someone taking a picture in a church. I followed the instructions on https://athemes.com/documentation/sydney/ but it doesnt explain this! I go to dashboard --> customize --> header area --> header image (I change this) and --> background image (I change this). Click save and nothing changes! Apart from my title at the top of the page now has a black space around it and no longer overlays the default image. I must be doing something very simple wrong so sorry in advance. I’ve been two hours trying to work this out!

Hello there,

Thank you for getting in touch.

Could you please try the following?

Go to Appearance > Customize > Header Area > Header Slider. Then upload your images to the first and second slide.

Warmest regards,
Kharis

Thanks Kharis, that worked!
