Still not working the way that I think it should, like I said the pics are very grainy and I've resized some of the photos that I have, but keep getting the same message that the resource is larger than 60kb am I missing something?

What program are you using to resize the images? What format are you saving them in?

I'm using Roxio photo suite 5,png, jpeg,gif, I've tried them all I think and some work, some don't, the ones that work aren't very clear, they are very blurry, I have some clear pics of penguins and the properties of the pics tell me that they are under the kb size, also have reduced the overall size to fit the screen of my 7130e and still to no avail. Some things just frustrate the he_l out of me....... thanks for the response

I'm not familiar with Roxio Image Processing software, but I save my images as a png file, playing with the settings to get them to about 56Kbytes and never have any problems with the 60K limit. Each image is different and requires fiddling with the Colors, Dithering and other settings.
Hope this helps

Thanks, the help has been enlightening, but maybe I can just talk srl7741 into just creating one for me. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I'm pretty good with manipulating pics and this just seems to boggle my mind for some reason. I've adjusted them by color, size, etc and to no avail. I have used the pics that srl had posted, but like I said they were very grainy and not very nice to look at on the bb. So unless I can identify exactly what it is that I'm missing shortly, I'm giving up the theme making process. Thanks for all the help I really do appreciated.

Can you post one of your pictures in an attachment here, and let me see what I can do with it. I'll post it back after I play with it.

I would like to, but I only have my pics in my pics folder and this wants an url, so how do I do that?

Click on Go Advanced beside the Post Quick Reply. Compose the post then below the post entry area, you will find a link to Manage Attachments. Click on that then use the popup window to browse to the file in your pics folder.

Try this one. Let me know what you think of it. The other one was already to narrow to expand to fill your screen. I'll try to find a higher resolution copy of it on the net, check back later on it.
Found the original to the other, but it too didn't have enough pixels to fill your screen. But I did find a similar one. Let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for the help, I'm testing it now will let you know how I make out.

Well, it worked and I'm pretty happy with it for now. Is there a program or software that I need to change the icons to clear and to change the pics of the icons? Guess I will need to look further on the net for more pics to work with in order to do themes. Anyway, thanks again you've been awesome.

Glad it worked, I use Photoshop Elements 4.0 for all my image processing, it's not that expensive and works pretty well. I have all my non-focus icons as a transparent Image and my also the first icon on my home screen. This gives a completely Clear screen except for the Banner indicators. See attachment 1 for Screen shot.
And just for you (and anyone else that wants it) here is a transparent Image for the 71xx Icons. attachment 2.
Hope the helps

Re: Request Themes here
I have a 7520 and I have been looking for a Red Bull theme. I drink it like crazy and would like to see what a theme would look like. I just wanted to see if it was possible.
