If you use Windows 7 and love to share pictures with family and friends, why not create a theme pack of your family’s pictures or of your newborn to send to relatives so they too can enjoy the family pictures right on their desktop. The new themes interface in Windows 7 not only allows you to create custom themes, but it also allows you to share those themes with whomever uses Windows 7. This how-to will walk you through simple process of saving your custom themes, if you wish to customize or create your own theme follow the instructions in Personalize Your Wallpaper and Save Custom Themes in Windows 7 .
