How do you create your own theme?

I'm curious, I have photoshop and I do lots of wallpapers and icons of my own for my iphone but now I would like to do my own theme for my computer. How do I go about doing this?

There are plenty of ways to customize Windows. Some are free while other require you to purchase the software.

The most popular methods are by using Stardock products such as WindowBlinds, IconPack and other desktop customizing utilities from Stardock. They do have some free software but the majority of the good software you must pay for.

Another option is to create your own skins using Windows Style Builder by Ave I think it's called. This is also software you'll have to purchase. If you'd like more information on either of these avenues, I'd be happy to answer any questions I can, otherwise there are several members here who use these softwares frequently

You will need to buy Windows Style builder OR you can use the editing method using restorator, which is much more complicated to do.
Also it is not easy creating your own theme as there are so many parts that you will have to change, and make them look as you want also takes a bit of time.

If you got more questions, let me know
