  • Point your browser to the blog currently using the theme.

  • Open a new file in Photoshop.
  • Change the size to 1200 by 900 (in pixels)
  • Press Ctrl + v or Right click > Paste.
  • With the Move tool activated, resize the screenshot to in the 300 x 225 space.
  • Go to File > Save for Web…
  • Save it as a PNG file, instead of GIF or JPG.
  • Name it screenshot.
  • Place your image file in the theme’s folder.
