\begin{picture}(210,90)
\ifpdf
\put(-10,0){\includegraphics*[height=80mm]{BlueBanner}}
\else
\put(-10,0){\includegraphics*[height=80mm,bb=0 0 201 42]
{BlueBanner}}
\fi
\end{picture}

The BlueBanner picture has an aspect ratio of 5:1. The picture
environment reserves some space, a rectangle of 210×90 mm². \put
shifts the picture by 10 mm into the left margin and lets it start at
the sheet's edge. The picture is scale, keeping the aspect ratio, to
a height of 80 mm. Above and below this blue banner approximately 5
mm space are left: half the difference of the reserved space and the
space actual used.

How do you try to include your picture?
