    Help With Theme Making

    Advertisement



    Heyy everyone I just have a few questions.

    1. How do I get fonts that I have downloaded from the internet into the font selection on PTB?

    2. How do I make a picture small enough and to look decent to be the new message icon?

    Thanks in advance,
    GP

    Why did the mods have to move this? I think all of 3 people know about this section even I didn't know it. I guess I will just never get any help

    its where it belongs...sorry mac

    all the themers frequent these forums...and this hits new posts, so no biggy.

    steveninstl can answer your font question, because he has done it...i just settle on what plazmic gives us

    the new message icon can't have a lot of detail. has to be something obvious. and like in my zen icon tutorial, make the trans background first at 49x36 and then cut/paste the small (i'd start guessing at around 20x20 and then go from there )

    Well I thought I had it but I don't now. How in the world do you make something transparent in GIMP? Also how do I get cool fonts from the internet for a choice on PTB in the drop down menu?

    Re: Help With Theme Making

    I use Photoshop to make icons with transparent backgrounds.

    this is a little different but I needed help as well, I am making a theme for my BB pearl and everthing seems to be going great except when I load it on the pearl to test it out, it changes the order of the icons to the one that is on PTB, I know how to change it on PTB but I needed to know how to make it stop changing them and just leave it the way it is there, I have several other themes on my Pearl and none of them change the order of my icons, any help on this would be great.
