    If you create your own custom tiles please share here for others to use :)

    To create your own custom home tiles is now very easy using the attached paint.net template.

    1. Find an image you would like to use for your tile and open the template in Paint.net

    2. Drag in your image and choose to keep the current canvas size ( should always be 630x400 )

    3. Resize your image to fit the tile and make sure your image layer is at the bottom so the black bar is visible over your image.
    4. Uncheck the default image layer

    5. Save as .jpg and look in C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\athena\Media to check the name of the tile you want to replace.

    6. Rename and copy over to the previous folder overwriting the old one.

    7. Clear your cache folder and start MediaPortal.
    If you replace plugin tiles with custom ones the process is the same but you also need to create a smaller version with the .small template attached to post.

    You will need the latest version of Athena to use the custom tiles which will be uploaded tonight 21/02/2014 ;)

    Thanks for sharing. For people like me working with photoshop here are the same templates in photoshop's psd format as I can't open pdn with it. Hope you don't mind.
