Creating a WordPress theme in Photoshop, but what Dimension?

    I want to try my hand at creating a WordPress theme in Photoshop so I can get my site looking exactly how I picture it, but I don't know what to make the overall dimensions.

    What should I make the dimensions for the entire theme? Also, roughly what size should things like the header be?

    The blog I need help with is ninetytwouselessthoughts.wordpress.com.

  2. You can't upload your own themes to hosted wordpress.com sites. You can only do that if you SELF-host a wordpress.org site. Here's a bit of info about the difference: .com and.org

    Aside: the answer to your question, though, will vary depending on what you want! Unless you're basing your own web designs off a specific theme or unless you're desigining it for a certain type of screen (i.e. iPhone as opposed to desktop), there are no real restrictions, just best practices.

  3. Should also have added: if you're interested in trying to build a theme for a self-hosted wordpress.org install, you'll be able to find help over at the wordpress.org support forums and information in the WordPress Codex. Good luck!
