.... The main and fatal issue with GIMP that it DOES NOT handle PSD  format ...
I guess, it's not.

You can open PSD extension files with GIMP, not perfectly but you still can import the majority of it.

Is there any way to open PSD files on GimPhoto?
I explained the situation in the post above yours.  :P

Yes, I know that, but I use GimPhoto and it can't open PSD- s. Do I need any plugin or patch?

How can one alter the "info center" layout at the bottom? So changing the colour, and removing the pseudo-rounded corners?

I love this tutorial. Thanks for sharing this valuable information.

I'm in the process of completely overhauling a theme but I'm confused about one thing...
I changed my gradient images but there is like a border under them and I'm not sure where to find that so I can either change or delete that border. It just looks like a bar, a thick underline, under the gradients.

I'm on my way to actually creating a very unique looking theme and when I'm done, I may take up theme creations.

Sorry it took me so long to see this, kiro. Was on 6 days, 12 hours a day at work.
Flapjack is correct. In the folder of the theme you are working with there is an images folder. Check there.

I just download them, edit them with a photo editing program and upload them with the same name and file extension. Always save the originals elsewhere in case of a problem.

Section 5 of the guide didn't work for me. It shrunk the height of the header, which is what I wanted, as there was too much blank space between my custom banner and the menu buttons below it, but the banner wouldn't display. Obviously, the "display none" code had something to do with that. Is there a way to compress the header without losing the banner image? I use 2.0 R3.
