Archives For SharePoint Theme


Using Theme Builder for Office 2007 and 2010 http://connect.microsoft.com/ThemeBuilder we can create Themes that can also be used in your SharePoint 2010 sites.  Using the interface (see above) you can assign colors to the various areas that match those that SharePoint is looking for (accents, hyperlinks, etc).  Once created, you can upload the Theme to the Gallery, and then reference it in the Theme Settings.
