Sharepoint 2010 Theme customization explained

There are two options to build themes using following tools

  1. MS Power point 2010
  2. Sharepoint 2010 Theme builder

At first look above tools look very easy to create themes but there are lot limitations and not well defined

  • You can only change colors.
  • You can not change design elements.
Themes in SharePoint 2010 are pretty tough. There are about 60 permutations, and you can only define about 10 of those colors.
Happy Customization!
