I really like the background on the PTWpf MainForm.xaml.  I've been seeing these types of backgrounds on Microsoft Money and many other applications.  They give a really professional look to an application, and if you're as graphically challenged as I am, they are a complete mystery!

From a 10,000 foot level, can somebody direct me as to how these are created?  I have the entire Expression studio.  Is that a possibility?  Even better would be a URL or 2 that could get me started in this wide mysterious world? 

I'm a whizbang coder having just earned my WPF MCTS.  However, Graphics is like Latin for me and it's getting pretty embarassing!  Help me!

Thanks for any assistance, and when you're as bad as me, anything is assistance.

I can tell you how I did it. I got one of our designers from Magenic Studios to create it for me Big Smile

I know Anthony used Blend to create the design assets - but I don't know the steps that are involved, sorry.
