I am trying to change the background to background 3 (rust color) and the top fade to the blue that is titled top fade #1.  I found these in the psd that comes with the touch of soul.

I had already uploaded the template before I wanted to make the changes.  I changed the psd to what I wanted but cannot get it to upload as a package after zipping the file. I get an error message about no xml file.  I forgot the exact wording.

Can you tell me the code that I could use to change the background and top fade to what I want or how I can upload the zip files?

I did not include the url because I do not have the site viewable at this time.

The background for the body image is called from

template_css.css - line 8

body {
    background: url("../images/s5_background.jpg") no-repeat scroll center top transparent !important;
    color: #333333;
    font-family: tahoma;

So basically what you need to do is download this image here:

And edit it the exact way you want. Then upload and overwrite the existing image called s5_background.jpg in the /images folder on your FTP or File Manager for your website.

Make sure you make a backup before overwriting anything.
