Nope, just photoshop and the knowledge of how to package it. Make sure the images are .png. Thats a start.

Ummm depending on what kind of Theme you are making. For instance, a Summerboard theme. It would need to be dropped into Summerboard directory.
File location: var/root/Library/Summerboard/Themes
You name the folder "Theme name" <---The actual name of the theme
Inside that folder you need the "Wallpaper" and "Dock" images. Search for specific sizes, there are limitations by pixels.
And also you will need a subfolder named "Icons". Within this foldet you will have all of your icons. They must be named to match the homescreen labels.
