  3. Select the menu option for “Header” or “Logo” settings. The options available in the customizer are not standard throughout WordPress and are determined by the theme developer. You might have to search a bit to find section in your theme that allows for customizations. Here are a couple examples of what you’re looking for:

I’d like to have a smaller version of my logo for tablet and mobile to squeeze out a little more speed. Everytime I upload an image for one devices size in OPTIONS (mobile, tablet, desktop) all three change.
