In this tutorial, we’ll look at one of them. Usually photo manipulation utilizes stock imagery. However, what if you were to create your own sort of background stock, but in 3D? How could you make it look good? That is the main topic we’ll look at today.

In the making of iPhong dot Com web blog, I came across this great article about how to create a WordPress theme from scratch. I'm very new to this WordPress thing, I used to write my own web application with PHP and barely use third party applications. At first, when I looked at pre-made themes' structures, it was so complicated. I couldn't understand I thing. But then, when I started reading this article, I began to understand the basics and found it so easy. I was so excited, with my PHP and CSS skills, I was able to put together a theme in about a night. The process was quite smooth and I haven't got any problem. So far so good. Now is time for me to develop few custom plug-ins for this blog, and start writing, and collecting great tutorials.
