    Question Hey there! i need help!
    Hi guys! im new to this board, but i need some help.

    im trying to make a custom theme (based off the GBA game "Super Robot Taisen: Original Genoration"), but when i try to make the thing that you slide, it always has the backround colour, but i want it to just be the main picture (i've tried black and white, but those always show up). the slider is under the directory, /private/var/stash/Themes.o626NS/Super Robot Taisen/Bundles/com.apple.TelephonyUI. also, this same thing happens when i try to make custom app picures. any help please?

    P.S,

    the file under that directory is "bottombarknobgray.png"

    thanks!... but i was just wondering, how do i make the backround transparent >.<
    I'm using paint, so is it possible to make it transparent? thanks :P

    EDIT: i looked in help, and i un-selected "draw Opaque", but nothing works. i've tried it with black and white backrounds. heres an image (yes i like naruto, but that was just the starting base cause it had everything in that theme):

    Essentially, you need to erase the white part and that will leave the background transparent. There are a few ways to do that, the eraser tool being one of the ways.

    search google for photoshop techniques
