Tool to Create Custom Google Themes Available

The great thing about iGoogle is that there are loads of customization tools to choose from, but there is one aspect in which iGoogle is deficient: user generated themes. There are plenty of themes to choose from, but trying to come up with a theme of your own was a bit troublesome since there was no easy to use tool one could employ - all that is now a thing of the past, because Google has issued just such a tool.

iGoogle Engineer Kathleen Ko explains: “Now, you too can capture memories and images on your iGoogle homepage by building a custom theme. We've just released our new tool for creating iGoogle themes. It's an easy way for iGoogle users to spruce up their personalized homepage without needing to know how to use XML, etc. All you need is an image, and we'll provide the rest.

Google’s theme creating tool, which has a rather simple to understand user interface, can be used to perform the following tasks:
- Crop images: select only a part of the picture you wish to use as a theme, or crop the image so it would fit the theme.
- Color Schemes allows you to choose from a wide range of colors that would complement your picture.
- You can preview all the modifications in real-time, which will allow you to better set up the theme of your dreams.
- Make your theme available to the whole world (public), or set it up so that only you can see it (private).

The tool to create custom themes for iGoogle will be made available to the general public here. At the moment of writing this article the link was not yet functional, but I would expect it to be just a matter of time until Google solves all the problems and releases the tool. Until then, have fun customizing Google with Groovle.
