Default I have a question about rockbox themes/backdrops

OK I wanted to know are the themes in rockbox and the backdrops tied in somehow or can I use any .BMP image as a backdrop? and what is the difference between the themes and the backdrops if there is one?

I can't answer your exact question but I have made a couple of backdrops for themes that did not originally have them. They are simple BMP images, sized to 176 x 220, and placed in the backdrops folder, with the name and path of the image put into the theme cfg file.

Example: backdrop: /.rockbox/backdrops/nameofbackdrop.bmp

to finish answering the question

themes controls the WPS (while playing screen) the backdrop, the fonts that theme uses, selection bar colors etc.

and for the backdrop any picture can be used but it has to be sized 176x220

Yes, and no. There can be predefined backdrop, fonts, colours and selection bar style, etc for a theme. However, all this can be change on the fly or by editing the theme's cfg file.
