How I create new template in my test blog; Creative Techio?

Before you want to change new template, you should download your old template in Layout > Edit HTML. :)

In the Dashboard, you click 'Layout'> 'Blogger Template Designer'. It will lead to use to use the Template Designer to pick a new one. There are four of different customizationl template, background, layout and advanced, that can help you to choose and edit it so easily. I try to select one of themes; Watermark, then it will have different of colors on the themes...

If you don't like their background, you can check on the background images and patterns from iStockphoto, the leading microstock image marketplace. I also used to visit iStockphoto website for my idea design. This photos are very nice, professional and beautiful. You have to select 'background' then, click on 'background images', so the background gallery image show up to you to choose any background you like. When you finish do the background, you can click 'Done'

Then, you can change the color theme of the blog. You choose 'Advanced', then select few options; blog title, background, page text, post, and etc....This changes the colors of all the elements on the blog if you like.

If you like to do the different layout with few gadgets, you can control the column layouts, such as one, two, and three-column. And you can change the size of blog posts and arrangement of the columns. Select 'Layout' > 'Blog layout', footer layout', or 'adjust size of width'.

Finally you can click on 'Apply to Blog' when you complete your design template. Then you can view your blog! You can enjoy to post in your blog and if you want to move or drag some gadget, you can rearrange your gadgets by dragging them to the section when you go to Layout > Page Elements in Blogger to add, remove, or edit gadgets.

It's fun and easy to do new template design for Blogger? :D You better to try this! No need to learn XHTML to do~

But, I wish that add a feature 'uploading an image' in the background images in the Blogger Template Designer :)
