    Predefinito Tutorials for Theme Creators

    Here a small tutorial to use PNG Wallpaper in Carbide so they looks nice and not transformed in Portrait and Landscape mode.

    All the examples are for 240x320px resolution

    As first create or use a wallpaper in your bitmap editor in 320x320px

    image1hk2


    Now select 320x240px of the image as shown and copy the part

    image2cn9


    Here your copied part as new image

    image3ey0


    Now select and copy 320x21px from the top

    image4yo7


    Your copied and pasted part as new image, save it at any place or folder as you want

    image5ki3


    Go back to this image and select 320x21px at the bottom and copy

    image6et7


    Save at the same place or folder as the top part

    image7sr4


    Now open carbide, go to backgrounds, use the settings as shown and use the 320x320px wallpaper per drag and drop

    image8ou6


    Use the saved top part of the background (320x21px) as shown

    image9ez8


    Use the saved bottom part of the background (320x21px) as shown

    image10cd9


    This is an example if you want to use one background for the idle and menu screen. So you must use these parts also for the menu background.

    If you want to use different wallpaper for the idle and menu background, then make the same steps as shown in the bitmap editor with the second wallpaper.

    Predefinito Changing Icons in Carbide 3.1

    Many people ask me how to change the icons in Carbide 3.1. So i make a little tutorial about this.
    You need a good graphic program (as example paint shop, fireworks or photoshop). Also an icon pack or two (for better choice) as png files in 128x128px or 256x256px.
    I make this examples with png bitmaps, because i found more icons as png files in the net.

    You can also change the icons per drag and drop if they have the correct size which are needed in carbide


    1.
    Example, changing one application icon for a theme with a screen size of 352x416px

    changeico1xv8


    The "placeholder" icon in my bitmap editor:

    changeico2kb6


    Now we see the placeholder icon in the bitmap editor and we can search/ select our new icon.

    2.
    Open the selected icon in the bitmap editor and copy them to the placeholder icon.
    Resize the new icon to your needed size.
    Then make the layer of the placeholder icon hidden and save the file.

    changeico3xh5


    3.
    Go back to Carbide and you see the new icon, if you like it, save.
    After saving Carbide 3.1 create automatically a mask, so the icon has a transparent background
    (in TS 3.0 you must create a mask by yourself if you use bitmap icons).

    That's all. Finished

    changeico4pb7


    -------------------
    Question:
    hi, i've tried out the tutorial. i did everything that was stated but i dont see any change in theme studio. please help !

    Answer:
    You don't close Carbide if you edit the icon in your bitmap editor?
    Both programs must be open.
    You saved the file after editing in your bitmap editor?

    I just tested it with an other editor (illustrator-svg editor), works also, i changed the calendar icon. The difference are only that Carbide don't create a mask after saving, because you use a svg graphic

    -------------------

    Question:
    .. just checking, but where did you saved the new icon?


    Answer:
    You must save it in your bitmap editor, otherwise the new icon would not shown in Carbide.
    Which editor do you use?
    Any editor has the the option: file -> save ( see point 8 in the tutorial images )

    -------------------

    Question:
    i'm using adobe photoshop CS2. i did press `Save' but it goes to this screen and the folder reads `Temp' so i'm assuming i saved the file in Temp ? i'm not sure if that's correct

    Answer:
    I don't install CS2 to test it.
    As example you can see the path with Adobe illustrator.

    changeiconilludp1

    -------------------

    Question:
    ok i think i get it. i have illustrator too. the thing is, the current pictures of my icons have this black background. is there anyway to just get the icon ?

    Answer:
    What are your icon files, bmp or png? You should only use PNG32 (transparent) files or SVG Icons

    Predefinito Batch Progress with Icons

    If you download icon packages to use the icons for your theme, then is it much work to change all.
    As first are most of the icons 128x128px or 256x256px. But you need other sizes for your theme and not only one size for all, peculiar some different.


    As example for a theme in 352x416px:

    iconfolderszy7

    To resize every icon is possible, but batch progress is easier. All good bitmap editors, also good image viewer should do this.
    As example i used Fireworks. Most of the steps should also work with other programs.

    If you download an Icon package which you like, then look how much icons are in the package. You need much if you want to change all and if you want different icons. 50 different icons or more is a good rate. So it could be that you need more as one package, often are the same icons in there.
    If you have enough icons, then look which you want to use and put them in a new folder.

    Step 1-4

    step14nq1


    Step 5-8

    step58jr3


    Step 9-12

    step912xr9


    Step 13-16

    step1316ya5


    Step 17-21

    Non per fare il "disfattista"... Ma nessuno riuscirebbe a tradurlo?!
    Se non altro riuscirei a capire come iniziare...

    Ad ogni modo grazie per i tuoi consigli Supertonic!
