Hi,
I were just wondering, how long does it take you to make a theme?
For me, (I'm a newbie - only made 2 themes :)) it takes ~2 hours...

Btw, do you like my newest theme? http://www.mobile9.com/4images/categories.php?cat_id=32 (the one called evol)

When I first started it took about 3 - 4 hours but only because I didn't have the template that vinnie :good: supplied. Now I can knock out a standard theme 30 - 60 minutes. I probably spend more time looking for the right piccie than I do creating the theme itself.

my record was 15 mins for a basic one image-blur and glow desktop/menu theme; and around 1 hour for my regular theme.

for me it varies alot - I also spend most time looking for some good graphics to work with, then I spend some time playing with the picture in Photoshop to see if I can make something of it. Sometimes its just a standard crop, blur, thing that may take 30 minuttes, sometimes I work alot with the image, trying different things, then it takes longer. Some themes I have worked on several times without completing them.

I cannot upload the template, unless VINNIE knows how to do it, if not we can email you, it save a hell of a lot of time. :good:

A theme with normal features: blur, some gradient, etc. should only take 2 minutes (if you already know which image to use beforehand). How? Make use photoshop actions.
