Development : Official Template Designer Released



The developers at finally realized the need to upgrade or add some new themes to those extremely boring default collection of themes and released new Template Designer embedded in interface. It’s been just 2 months that I discussed and shared some third party Blogger blogs template generators.

With this official all new Template Designer now you can not just customize your template designs, but also change the look and layout, colors and CSS of your blog in a split window.You can add and choose from hundreds of custom backgrounds.

Remember: The Template Designer is still in its testing phase and can only be accessed through Blogger in Draft.


Initially you are given:

– 15 new, highly-customizable templates, split into four families: Simple, Picture Window, Awesome Inc, and Watermark.


– One-, two-, and three-column layouts for each template, with complete control over the size and arrangement of the columns.

– Hundreds of background images and patterns from iStockphoto, the leading microstock image marketplace.
