    There are a lot of threads covering this, but in a nutshell you need a graphics program that can save PNG format files; a lot of us use Photoshop. Its not a rare format so most any graphics program will do that. The icons are 60x60 pixel PNG files. The dock is 91x320, and if you save a blank PNG file at that size you will only see the wallpaper image. WinSCP will let you load files on your phone. Summerboard is the program that lets you change themes. I'd recommend you install one of the default themes and learn how they are set up.

    If none of that makes sense, or if you haven't Jailbroken your phone then you have a lot of reading to do. Try the Stickies and tutorials. Read past threads, that kind of thing.

    You need a graphics program. Save the image as a PNG file and name it the same as the application, Text.png for example.

    Install SMBPrefs on your phone.
    Install a theme on your phone.

    Read previous threads because they will tell you where the Theme files go, how they are structured, and setting the correct permissions.

    Build your theme according to those instructions.

    Since you mentioned LM-Black install that theme on your phone and use WinSCP to locate it in var/root/Library/Themes/...

    That will give you an indication of how the themes are supposed to be built. I suggest you learn by modifying that theme.
