I was wrong about the compression, i had the browser zoomed, but i did create a new compressed version for you with the text better aligned.

Not at all - I have a WordPress site & I created one for a friend. You DO have a username and password, right?

Go to Settings -> General:Modify Tagline

EditTo change it graphically, at first i thought i'd clone/patch tool it away, but like many graphic projects sometimes you need to create ways to accomplish the task at hand.   I decided for quality reasons, it would be better to recreate some elements.  

I duplicated the original layer to edit it.

I used the Elliptical Marquee Tool/Paint Bucket Tool to create each circle on individual layers. I simply created white circles, then used the Blending Option "Gradient Overlay" to recreate the gradient within the circles.   I sampled the bottom and top of the original circle for the gradient colors.   I did this for each circle.

I created a line and sampled the blue for the line out of the original line.  I did this to be able to keep the line on top of the new circles.

I then used the Patch/Clone Tools to patch/clone the words out of the copy of the original image.

I then added a text layer on top.


I carefully labeled the PSD, so you can go into it to see the additional layers i added.    The PSD is attached.

Your edit looks fine.   The only thing i'd change it the amount of compression on the image.

I hadn't seen that editor website before.   It looks like it has all the basic editing tools.   I haven't used it before so i'm not so sure how good it edits.   Much of this type of editing takes lots of practice.     Photoshop is an industry standard for a reason, it's a excellent editor.

You could do online courses.   Don't forget how useful youtube is and free.   If you do a search for Photoshop tutorial in youtube you will find plenty.   The way Photoshop goes, you learn a few tools and a few tricks in Photoshop and then grow in it for many years to come (adding more tools and tricks along the way).   I started using Photoshop in 1994 and have much more to learn.

Once you learn a few tools, then you'll spend years getting better at using them.   It's just like painters, they spend lots of time with different types of brushes and tools to better at using them in their art.
