    Re-coloring

    I know that themes can be re-colored because I see differently colored versions of themes. How is it being done? I'd like to know because there are some I'd like to try to re-color. Thanks in advance.

    The only way to correctly recolour a theme is using Windows Style Builder and a image editor and it depends on the colours used but it can be done by just changing the hue of the images and then saving them back into the theme using WSB.

    As I recolored rise of the primes I recolored all images in WSB using the channelmixer in PS. There you can simply change for example the blue channel with the green one and the picture is recolored from blue to green respectively green to blue.

    Thanks VC for being such an awesome forum!

    Thanks for the prompt replies. I checked out WSB and there is no trial version. Seems that they should have one to "try before you buy." I know Adobe PS does.

    Is there anywhere I could find a good tutorial on this? Preferably with video or illustrations? I'm extremely interested in this & I think it would help me immensely on my road to learning the ropes.

    You're not going to find many tutorials on simply replacing the graphics in WSB with the recolored ones (it's easy).
    You'll find many tutorials on YouTube on how to use functions in image editors such as recoloring.
    If you do decide to start recoloring a theme I recommend you export each image one at a time, recolor the image and reimport it so that way you don't have to go hunting through the 100+ graphics looking for the right size one or crashing WSB by importing the wrong image. Also remember to expand every single tree and frequently enter Testing Mode and save your theme.
