I'm interested in making a theme for my soon to arrive iPhone.
I have read a lot of threads and advice on skinning, theme creation but there is so much information and it changes so fast that I'm totally confused.
I think I have a handle on creating the carrier and slide logos. I'm wondering about the Dock and homepage background though. I'm not sure I want to make icons yet.
What size does the dock need to be?
Is there an easy way to change the homepage background yet? If so, is there a guide?
What other things can I change that would work well with a theme?
I'm about to retire from the Air Force and think an AF theme could have lots of potential. (F-22 slider, blue and silver stuff, etc...) I do have some skills with CS3, just need some iPhone direction.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

what i would suggest is creating the theme with summerboard and the customize program in mind. for summerboard, you can find the specs for the pics at http://www.apptapp.com/summerboard. i think a good AF theme would be awesome and a good addition to the iphone community. i need to find some time to convert my themes to summerboard.

Thanks for the reply.
I really can't wait to get my phone. I'm currently in Baghdad, and shipping is taking a looooong time.
I will definetely play with Summerboard when it gets here. I'm working on icons/sliders and wallpapers already. Guess I'll just make straight png's, nothing special...cool.
