SharePoint 2010 Themes

As you all know SharePoint is a new theme engine, 2010. You can do interesting things, how to create a theme in PowerPoint, take it and then import it into SharePoint 2010, click Apply, and you have a custom theme. One aspect that I could not find documented is the definition of when you choose the color of a certain part that really change?
If you change the page theme, you can choose to use a collector OOTB or custom theme. Or you can choose your own color scheme through the following points.

My approach: Making every white element to start with and then one by one, add color and document the results. Just for fun here is how it looks when it is completely white ... (Not a color, I would recommend ...) I will use a red color: # C12345 for testing.

Here are the details for each one of the elements above:

I hope this post will help you when you decide to create your own theme via the above elements. If you create your own theme you can simply view the source of the page and there will be a unique CSS style sheet reference “_themes/16/corev4-8digithex.css?ctag=#”. Just copy that url and past it to the end of your site string and you can download the custom file.
