What I do is: when the theme is loaded in Theme Creator Pro, I make a screenshot (press print screen button), thus copying the entirety of my screen to the clipboard.

I copy that into Photoshop, crop it to what I actually want to show and upload that.

Thanks! Didn't know about the program, was going to just make things by changing the xml file and the images from a default theme. This way looks much easier! :)

This is what I do...
Tools - TScreen Capture (use the most thin frame to get the right size) then save. Since the thumbnail saved has a large file size, I then open it using photoshop and save the very same thumbnail using save for web as gif image, that will decrease the file size dramatically.

i do what vlamm does, i think you can use any picture editing software, like paint, i think it could also be dun in word but you cant save it as a picture.

Hope this helps :)

I got the idea now. The only problem I had was I didn't know that theme creator existed! I'm pretty good with photoshop. ;)
