My first attempt at a theme. - Netrosis - 2005-07-02

I was suprised and confused, heartached at first.

But, once i got the hang of it, I found an easy way to skin it. While the whole forums are not finished, still alot of graphical bugs and i still have to make my own buttons/smilies, etc. I just wanted to show this to you guys to see what you can do.

Its a slightly more graphical template Smile

sorry about this though, it will not be available for download.
But after this ill be making more skins! Big Grin

anyway tell me what you think.

**Edit**

Sorry about the resolution, Im on a widescreen Smile.
and I normally use FireFox but it was playing up with the settings so I took a picture in IE instead.

Too much emboss for me... But the templates have high potential though Smile

**Too much**?

there's not alot of embossing on that.

That's a very nice theme. I'd always wondered how to do those embossed looks on a forum. Care to share with me? Big Grin

I always liked the look of other peoples themes. I could never creat my own Sad


RE: My first attempt at a theme. - Netrosis - 2005-07-03

All of the images are photoshopped.

Embossing is really easy.

Right click on the layer, goto Blending Options, check the 'Embossing + something else' box and then click on the text. change around some of the settings, etc, etc. I also used a 1px Black stroke around my images usually adds to some of the embossed effects.

anyone got any more ideas for themes?

Nice job. But it looks like something you would find for a clan forum template.

Why not ??

You're using a free BBS, so why not make it freely available for those who would want to use it ??

So long as they retain the © credit in the footer... Smile

because I want my website to look unique. Big Grin

mmn. well im i'll be making more themes for public use.
apart from that, this is also my first skin. Im considering changing my website design and therefore If that happens this will become publically available.

(with instructions on how to photoshop extra buttons)

It's not nice to post 'Cherries' and then tell the orphans they can't have them...
