I am a new user; I was able to download a template and update it with a different theme. Now I want to change the logo and remove the "smf" references so the forum looks like my own. I have designed a logo in a word processing program, but it appears to me that I will have to make it a gif file to use it, and I can't figure out how to do that.
Is there a resource or help file that will guide me in this area? Is there a web design program that would let me change these aspects of the template?
