Theme away! Create your own custom Mac OS X themes

Many, many, many email messages have poured in over the past two days asking how the actual themes themselves are created since we ran our story, “Tired of Aqua? How to ‘theme’ Mac OS X Jaguar” on Monday. The answer is ThemePark. ThemePark is an application for actually creating custom themes on Mac OS X. ThemePark can edit the following resource types:

* clr#
* clut
* ppat
* pxm#

These are the resources that form the basis of Aqua, so ThemePark can finally make Mac OS X look the way you want it to look.

ThemePark doesn’t try to be an image editor for these resources – you’ll need a good graphics program such as GraphicConverter, Adobe Photoshop or TIFFany to make the best use of ThemePark.

This is a beta version and will expire on November 1st, 2002. Once ThemePark reaches release status, it will be distributed as shareware for $20 US. You can try it now for free here.

If you’d rather have someone else do the work for you and you want to change your Mac’s look quickly, read this.
