Theme Colors


If you are using a visual theme creation utility such as Theme Freak, choosing your theme colors is as easy as pointing and clicking. But you may want to open up someone else's theme to change some colors around or edit one of your own. You can edit a theme file by simply opening it up in Notepad or any text editor. Changing the Windows color scheme to match your wallpaper can be very frustrating without a theme creation tool. Well, fret no longer since one of my friends has now made this very simple. You can either view smaller jpgs here on this page, or download the full size bitmaps to keep on your computer as a guide. There are arrows pointing to each section of the color scheme with the name associated with that section. With these guides, it is very easy to see exactly which color you are changing in your color scheme. Choosing a color scheme is important for branding your business or image. How many businesses can your recognize by simply their colors and logo? While a business may update their logo or design over the years, their colors usually remain the same. Make sure you start your business fund by picking a color scheme you plan on keeping for a while.
