The main keyword on my website that should go into my H1 TAG is not visible to search engines because it's part the header .gif file:

<img src="../images/header2.jpg" width="778" height="252"></td>

If I had a line below it the copy shows up and looks awful.
If cloak it, that's not good either.

So what do I have to do to use my H1 tag with my main keyword so the search engines can see it?

That's a good place to start.
