ClockWurkx Pro Tutorials

General

There is some general information you will need to know before you start theming ClockWurkx Pro:

  • Images are sampled at 420 pixels x 420 pixels and will be resized to fit
  • The "Multiply" transformation is used to add colour
  • Therefore, white becomes the colour selected whilst black stays black
  • As transparency is needed the .PNG file format is used

Once you have created your template and saved it as a PNG file, you can upload it to your phone and open it in ClockWurkx Pro using the "+" button on the relevant layer.
