    Re: help to edit a theme

    Hi rcmpayne,

    Those files are not the files needed to edit a theme. When making a theme and saving it you will see a .thm file saved. That is the file you can use the edit the theme at a later time.

    hope this helps and welcome to pinstack

    Where does one get the theme building software and having read the previous posts am I right that you cannot edit an existing theme but have to have a source file? Thanks in advance.

    Re: help to edit a theme

    rcmpayne, This is a common error for the Theme Builder. It automatically changes the image files from gif or jpeg to png, but it doesn't do a very clean job of it. It really blows up the file size. Your best bet is to save it as a png file yourself using a photo editor and play with the settings to get the png file to just below 60 Kbytes. I use Photoshop elements to do this using the Save For Web feature.

    Hope this helps

    Are you saving the files as gif?
