It is not necessary to have a lot f software to use design templates. You will need a text editor to modify the template. Anything from Notepad found on Windows computers to Adobe Dreamweaver will work. Notepad is very simple and offers no help in understanding design. Dreamweaver is a top shelf WYSIWYG editor. Dreamweaver will aid in modifying the template with very little skill required.It is very expensive, however. You may want an image program to edit images. You will need an FTP program to upload the finished pages and images to your server. That is about all you will need.
You can acquire this programs templates in three different ways: write your own, buy them or find free templates to use. If you can write your own then great; however, it can be difficult if you don't know the HTML codes or the CSS codes. Buying them is O.K.; however, why buy them if you can get them for free?
But before talking more about this matter it's important to remember that it's only allowed to edit the codes of the template when you got it for free. Otherwise, you may face copyright infringement problems if you do edit templates that are being sold online.
In order to effectively edit your template beyond simply changing fonts and colors in the variable definition section, you'll need to know (or be willing to learn) some things about CSS and the Blogger XML schema. It will likely take some studying of the existing XML setup and some experimenting to make the improvements you're looking for. As you make changes, you might want to keep a backup copy of your last working template so you don't have to go back to work from the original template file if you mess something up.
The third way to change your blog's theme is to download and install a Blogger template created by a designer. There are many free Blogger templates available for download all over the Internet.To install a third-party Blogger template, save the template XML file to your computer. Then, from the Layout -> Edit HTML page, click Browse..., and find the template file on your computer. Then click Open to return to the Edit HTML page. Click Upload to upload the new template.
Apart from the fact that a majority of web templates come pre-loaded with standard pages like 'home', 'about us', 'products/services', and 'contact information', some also provide add-on HTML and Flash applications. You can also select web design templates with features such as photo gallery, online polls, live chat or credit card processing if it will serve your purpose.
