Ok, specifically,I need to change the top margin and head height
settings. The first page is just a normal business template. The second
page is supposed to have a picture in the heading on the left side and
some text on the right. The picture is circular and one inch in
diameter. Using 'fancyhdr;, when I place it in the 'fancyheader[l]'
command, the picture is too big for the area. Worse, text is then
written through it.

I can correct the problem using the '\newgeometry' command. I just
cannot figure out hoe to do it without having to enter it manually.

I hope I have explained this satisfactorily.
