I was playing around with my new toy and saw a bunch of folks making custom screens.   Decided I would try it as well.  After creating a few today, I thought it might be easier to create a quick app that would help create the screens.  So I wrote a Windows App:

It has
  • a previews of the image at the top
  • 10 multi-line text fields, position x/y, font type and size
  • 2 image import fields, scale image to fit, position x/y
  • black on white or white on black foreground and background
  • save image in multiple formats
  • save configuration for loading/modifying later
[DNAthemeApp1] 
You can see what I did above, took me about 1 minute.  I pulled a random black and white shack image off the net (no idea what it's original size was), added some text in different fonts, positioned everything and done.

Here is another example that is very easy but very specific about a made up (and does not look realistic) build (theme):
[DNAthemeApp] 
I cut and pasted the ‎Ω symbol off the net ( you can do this with almost any text symbol).

There is also an image bit editor which allows you to change individual bit colors or quickly invert the entire image:
[DNAThemeImageMakerEditor] 

I would consider this early Beta code as it has only been tested by me to date.  I'll try to make updates and changes as needed but make no promises (thus the source code is available).  The C# Windows Form application was developed in in Visual Studio 2012.  It is a fairly simple app.  Plus I developed this without plans for anyone else to use it, so I did not worry about error checking too much in this build.

Feel free to download a play with it.  For those that want to source, I've provided a link as well.  They are clean files, but if you want to scan them there are various online scanners like  Online Virus Scanner.

I think this is a fantastic idea and will help some of the people new to the DNA as we see so many requests for custom screens and how to do it and this is quick and simple looking, looking forward to play with it to see, well done and thanks for sharing [smile]

EDIT: are there any additional files requires such as Visual studio installed? it wont run on my W10 install, i select it and hit enter, see the working icon for a second and then nothing, even tried with task manager open and cannot see any new tasks starting.
Comparability checker failed to find a working mode either.

Oops... sorry folks.  It was like 4 or 5 in the morning when I posted that.  Forgot to embed a custom Library (font dialog).  Both links should be updated with a new build.  I tested it on a Windows 8 VM and it worked.  It is a stand alone app with no other files required [fingers crossed this time [smile] ).
