    1st attempt In Theme Making

    Advertisement



    Hello all.. I been a member here for almost 3 years now and i feel it is about time i have started to share what i believe i have learned with all who have been there foer me and the entire community.. BUTTTT im having a slight problem to start.. I cannot get the pixelation right for the icons on the theme i obviously know my pixellation is way too big for the icons which use 48*36 pixels.. i have my hands on dreamworks and adobe photoshop which prog would any1 suggest to use for making the icon buttons or any suggestions would be great.. im also not understanding the theme composer at all if some 1 can dummy it up for me i would also appreciate that...

    Try going into the help section in the Plazmic Theme builder. It helped alot for me.

    Adobe Photoshop is an excellent program to use, and as for the pixels and the 48x36, just think of that as the size of your transparency not necessarily the image.

    There's a post in here for different sites, but I didn't have any luck finding it, but I have picked up most of mine just on a google search for free png icons

    i pretty much am done with the 1St of many themes i will create as soon as i fix up a few things and also figure out how to put an animated icon for the hour glass... the link helped me out quote a bunch with the png files... but still havin a problem figuring out how to put the frunning smurf when something is downloading instead of the houglass... and i downloaded the 4.5 plazmic theme builder will that only work on 4.5 devices or 4.3 and up???

    Its because of your status. Your have to have so many posts before you can post certain things like links. Try PMing Cherrichiodo, or Aztar(both mods and can be found all over) and they will be glad to help you get the link posted for your theme. Hope this helps...
