Hi, in this tutorial I will explain how to create a custom boot logo for your PS3.

To do this, you will need:

- Adobe Photoshop installed on your PC in order to create your logo;
- The DDS plugin for Photoshop (you can download it here : ... -photoshop), which allows you to edit your logo;

Now follow these steps:
- If you have not already done so, install Adobe Photoshop;
- Then install the DDS plugin;
- Now edit your .DDS files;
- Then open Coldboot Creator.exe and follow the steps.

1. After installing Adobe Photoshop and DDS plugin for it, you need to open the DDS files in the Boot Logo's (dds's). After opening a DDS file, select the option "Load Using Default Sizes" to load the file with the default sizes.

2. Once your logo is created, you need to back it up with the following configuration:
-in the scrolling menu choose “2D Texture”.
-under the “MIP Map Generation” select “Generate MIP maps”.

3. Repeat these steps for the 6 images, but be sure to keep the default size.

4. Then open Coldboot Creator.exe, and click on the "Press" button under Step 1.

6. Once you have converted your images, browse, using the button "Browse" your respective images.
