    Does anyone have any tips for editing the background_menu & background_dialog png files. I'm trying to make the transparent strip a darker opacity while leaving the rest as is. I'm using the demension theme files as a base. I want the opacity to match the banner and caret I've already created for an 8300/8800 today theme I'm working on. I'm not having much luck.

    mat -- open the png file up in photoshop and zoom in to like 1500%

    then take the magic wand and click the areas you want transparent (or changed or whatever)

    use the toolbar menus to change the appearance, opacity, etc...

    Thanks for the help. I had tried that. I Even tried making the selections manually then making new layers of those selections and editing but couldn't get it to do what I wanted. I finally just made a new one from scratch. I found if I make the 29x29 png file a miniature version of what I want the dialog window to look like it works out well.
