    Question What do you use to design themes?

    Advertisement



    Hey there!

    Let's see what everyone on this forum uses to design they're master pieces.

    I use Adobe Illustrator for Tracing Images from the web, and then edit the shape as I wish, then
    I use Photoshop to add Drop Shadows, Glows, and Gradients...

    Then put everything together with Theme Builder (Whatelse...)

    What do you guys use?
    Do what you are afraid to do.

    Never heard of it... I took a look at the website and I'm guessing its a photo editing program? Is there anything special about it?

    i continue to search for methods of going beyond "theme builder's" limitations.... not that i don't appreciate the platform... i just wish to go further. [and respect them controlling it].

    i wish i had the resources that most cellular co.'s have... to be granted access to the true theme building platforms/api's... that are obviously in use.

    i've heard rumour of templates being built in borland's "jbuilder" that relate to locked themes... it is so difficult to find confirmation.

    would love to gain an opportunity to explore these resources.

    Interesting. But In my opinion, Theme Builder does pretty much whatever you want it to do. So I am okay with it.

    artem,

    i agree... theme builder does pretty do it all... and i love it.

    would simply love to go a little further with theme development. or development of my themes... in this, i mean to be able to control all elements of the design... to be able to move/rework the placement of all elements on a theme, would make for some unique looks.
