Use Paint.net or GIMP.
Create a new image, using the right dimensions, add and/or create images, then save as a .png.
If you have specific questions, feel free to ask.

Did you save it as a .PNG? In Customize did you make your own folder, name it whatever, then drop it in there? Then go and select it in Customize? Whats the dimessions you used?

how do you make the image with rounded corners? is it possible to put the reflection effect?

I used Photoshop's refine edge feature. Let me tell you it was a major pain in the *** to create a slider, since I self taught myself the process through trial and error. Then I checked out this site!

Im guessing Photoshop would be good for this as well. Just make a png-24 with interlacing and transparency on. Would that work?
What are the dimensions that it has to be? or can someone post the original image (i still need to get my iPhone)

Yea i cant get the rounded edges down interlacing and transparency huh. i downloaded photoshop and toyed with it forever. i could create layers with those effects, i think but i couldnt combine them with my image. ive never used photoshop before. could someone link me to the right place or explain it to me like im an idiot, ive managed to customize just about everything on my ipod. but i cant make round sliders and i cant seem to change system sounds i put them in the right folder i can see them i choose them but they never change.
