    I feel really thick posting this but I'm having trouble editing a forum theme I've downloaded. I've installed it and at the moment I have the logo which is "Theme Name". The logo also has a unique background to it so I cannot just upload a transparent PNG because it wont have the background to it and the current image is a GIF so I cannot edit the text in it either.

    Why the hell dont these templates come with blank logo images so that you can easily edit the logo? Is there an easy way, any photoshop/fireworks tricks to removing text and replacing with similar colours where the text was?

    Image Editing is a serious downfall for me, I don't have a clue on where to start, managed to screenshot it and create new image out of it in the end, took a little while though lol.

    Most of the Templates you get for forums should have the PSD file. If you go through it and hide the various layers you should be able to get to the one you need. Cut it and make a new file paste and work

    Also another way to work with any image in something like this is to right click and view image. This will show you the location of the image on your ftp server. Would be something like xxxxx.xom/themes/themename/header.something

    Login to your ftp browser to it and grab that bitch edit through it back up.
