Based on Request by some users ,here is a Tutorial on how to make Theme for ML / Mav. (the tut is not very detailed but it cover the most ,u need to use ur Brain)


Resources


Tips
*make PS actions for Resize/move/Coloring the files as editing them 1 by 1 will make u hate ur self.
*(-2) is always the double of the (-1) ,the -2 is for the retina & it won't effect normal macs.


SArtFile {make The Resource Files any size u want}

▶Menu Bar > #109 & #48 (retina menu)
▶Spotlight > #110 & #111
▶Edge selector (right click selection) > #107 & #108
▶Menu text selection color > #49 & #50 {u have to color the 23px ,any empty pixels will be colored by the system}

▶Finder Top bar > L  > 88
                         M > 86
                         R > 90
*u don't need to edit the black curvy boxes like on SL
**#112 effects the top bar if any of L/M/R is blank.

▶Mac icon > #11 & #12 {for the -2 it have to be double the size} < (if u got any bad rendering ,put the Menu text selection color as a bg under the icon)

▶System setting small dots > #304 ,#306 ,#308 ,#310.

▶Login Window > #272

▶Arrows >#134 ,#165 (for Back/Forward) ….. #323 ,#334 (for Action/Path) …..#135 ,#146 ,#158 (for the column view folder arrows in finder)
*there a some more but needs more investigation.



ArtFile

▶Titlebar control > it have to be at the same size as the originals (if u made them all at one size like on SL it will get bad rendering)

*u have to change the artfile200 to work on retina
*the artfile200 is double the size of the normal one ,so make ur normal ones and test them 1st and when u r satisfied use the photoshop action for doubling the size.
*for the bad rendered TBC icons u can use the Finder Top bar files as a bg (that is a bug in ML & Lion that they accept certain amount of transparency)





\\\
+Thanx goes to Alex Zielenski for making that tools & mindlessmissy for compiling them.

+Original Threads macthemes.net/forum/viewtopic.… & macthemes.net/forum/viewtopic.…

-Tools you'll need cl.ly/3s0A1u0D2Z11 (works Lion & ML only "Mav use the same files from ML")
-The PS Action for resizing cl.ly/0g0q0w1Y3c3P

///
Update:
*i mentioned this b4 on macthemes but as its closed for now so here it is once more.
-ML cant be themed as Lion because of a bug in Safari that it repeats anything after the first 4pixels from the top (Finder doesn't have this bug) so unless u use something else other than safari ,u should go with Flavours.

Update 2:
*in Mavericks the safari bug is fixed ,so u can make any thing u want ,the only prob is the Edge selector (right click selection color) is hardcoded ,even if u've changed it ,it will remain blue/graphite.

because mac check the files and if they are blank or not as pre-defined by the system it uses the x2 files (sometimes it resize it and sometimes not) as a way around make the apple logo file as a copy of the menu bar.
