Google Launches Theme Builder For iGoogle

Posted Jan 15, 2009

Kathleen Ko, an iGoogle Engineer announced that it is now possible to customize your iGoogle theme.  The new feature isn’t quite up yet but will be coming soon at  After adding an image to your theme, Google will ask you to start customizing.

The iGoogle theme customization tool will ask you to crop your image if necessary, select a color scheme, show you a real-time preview of your theme, and give you the option of making it a public or private theme.

“We hope you have fun customizing your iGoogle homepage with your favorite images, whether they’re photos of your pets or places you’ve visited, drawings, designs, cartoons ? or whatever else your heart desires,” stated Ko on The Google Blog.
