Fantastic post Evrae - Im amazed notworthy.gif

I really do wish I had more time to help you and mam out in the 6600 theming department - but atm my timeschedule is down to 1-2 free hours max a day (If I skip the dishes) - and that doesnt leave much room for 6600 theming sad.gif

I'll pick up on it as soon as possible smile.gif

Hi,

I'm a new user so please forgive me lol

Am working on my first theme for my 7610...this thread and especially the guide by Evrae has bee an absolute Godsend. Thamkyou to all those who have contributed.

Please could someone help me by supplying the following info:

- The pixel dimensions for the List Columns (they are a sub-branch of Areas within Theme Studio). I tried copying and pasting the default 'slices' (which are automatically generated from the existing Background) however, they are not distinctly seperate from the Background element i.e. they are not slices. I can't find a way of copying them into PhotoShop and then getting their dimensions that way.

- How to actually create, size etc. alternative Volume Setting slices...i cant work it out from the dimensions given; also, what is the design aid for in this instance?

Thanks in advance for any help.

which software do u use ??
wengweng2003
let's have a try... hmmm, if i understand your problem correctly...

The pixel dimensions for the List Columns (they are a sub-branch of Areas within Theme Studio). I tried copying and pasting the default 'slices' (which are automatically generated from the existing Background) however, they are not distinctly seperate from the Background element i.e. they are not slices. I can't find a way of copying them into PhotoShop and then getting their dimensions that way.
---> have you tried using the mask?
---> double clicking it usually opens the bmp file on the photoshop by default... or you can also try saving that theme first (after saving one of the component list columns you want to pattern your work on), then go to where you installed the theme studio (by defalt it's: C:\Program Files\Theme Studio\data\skindir\"name of your theme")... once there, open that image file you want to modify... just layer over the old one...

How to actually create, size etc. alternative Volume Setting slices...i cant work it out from the dimensions given; also, what is the design aid for in this instance?
---> use the same procedure as above...
---> rarely use the design aid... just aids you in visualizing certain ranges on the bmp image where a mask sould be placed or where an image would/should appear... waste of time... just layer on the previous/ready made images that came with the program and use them as your design aids... it's faster and easier... just don't resize the canvass or move the image as it may disorient the whole thing

hope i understood and addressed your question in some little way... still have little experience with theming compared to other themers here...

waiting for clarifications... till then... rockon.gif haha.gif rockon.gif haha.gif
Evrae
Ooh and look out for the new version of Theme Studio, much faster at saving and now auto Xp compatible
wengweng2003
ma'm evrae, is this even newer than the 1.14 version?
Fauji
Thanks.

Will try.

Hi.. I was just wondering.. can you create your own folder icon with theme studio? Thanks.
Evrae
Nope, but saying that Ive not tried. There has to be a standard folder actually in the phone so in theory - If you found it, you could swap it but not using Theme Studio
bnycastro
Good am. I'm new to this forum and new to nokia theme making. Was wondering how you change the default font color for a theme? Which part do I edit. I am using Theme Studio and Photoshop on a WinXP desktop. Thanks in advance

QUOTE
how you change the default font color for a theme


on the left part of your screen you'll find the general options you usually click on to move from one area of the theme to another... there click on colours... you'll find a few new options for the areas of the fonts and lines you may want to change the colors of... select the area you want to change, then on the right side of your screen you'll find the option for colours (yep, another one... but this one's for selecting the actual color you'd want to use, the first one is for selecting the area you want to color)... select the color you want, click ok, and save... check out the preview option to see how it blends with the whole theme...

note: not all the fonts' colors can be changed... can't do anything about the following... font below the icons in the app screen... hmmm... come to think of it, the ones you can really change are the colors of the texts and symbols that appear on the idle screen, and the texts and symbols that appear on the top and bottom part of the rest of the theme... having said that, there's no option on changing the color of the numbers/indicator of how many SMS you've got stored i your inbox (you'll find this on the upper part of the phone's screen when you're reading an SMS)

hope this clears up a few questions

fell free to post your other concerns...
Andriy
