    Theme Building

    Advertisement



    Hey Pinstackers! I wanted to get into building my own themes so I can share them with you guys like you have done for me! I wanted to know if someone can give me some guidance on how to go about doing this? Do I just download the Plazmic Themebuilder and get at it? Or is it a bit more complicated (more to download) than that? I would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks!

    Hey amanda, you have to go here and download & install everything in blue at the bottom. You have to do it one by one. Then download the actually program at the top of the page because it will not install if you dont have the prereqs.

    There are tons of icons and such in the downloads section.

    Re: Theme Building

    Initially it was an 8 because it kicked my *** but I got used to it.

    If youre into being creative and get upset when people make themes with the wrong colors and fonts, this is for you lol. Youll get used to it in no time. By my 3rd theme, people were enjoying.

    It would also help you out a lot if you invested some time in learning a graphic program such as Photoshop, GIMP, or Fireworks. Those progarms allow you to create or touch up wallpapers, banners, carets, arrows, hourglasses, icons etc... GIMP is free.

    thats just weird. Porky's was already installed into Plazmic when I downloaded it. Are you using the lastest version?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    There are also a ton of *goodies* in the download section here. Icons, meters and such and I personally posted a *how to* on building good zen icons, using gimp, in the 8100 theme forum I believe
