Making The Design Your Own
I thought I would add this little section for people who want to download and customize
this template. If you have Photoshop, you can open each picture in the template then in
the top main menu go to IMAGE -> Adjustments -> Hue/Saturation. The HUE is to toggle
the main color in the image. Saturation is nice, it lets you adjust the vividness of the
color, if its too bright tone the saturation down a bit. When you're finished go to File
-> Save For Web. Under settings you should use JPEG compression either HIGH, MEDIUM,
No Photoshop?.. No Problem! 'The Gimp' is an excellent alternative to Photoshop, it is
opensource and FREE! The Gimp was written for Linux/Unix Operating Systems, but you can
run it on a Windows Platform by first installing the GTK Runtime Environment. You can
download it all here:
The first link on that page is The Gimp Application, the second link is the GTK RunTime
environment needed to run GIMP, and the third link is the GTK RunTime Environment for
Windows98/ME and NT4.
The GIMP Interface runs best at 1024x768 resolution. Once you have the GIMP installed you
can open up any image from the toolbox by going to File -> Open. Then on the image if you'll
notice it has a menu right above it, go to LAYER -> COLORS -> HUE-SATURATION. 'Master'
controls all the colors in the image, toggle the Hue to change the main colors. Saturation
is to adjust the vividness of the color in the image. Have Fun.
