Hehe, it didn't even occur to me that the 2560 number was the main graphic size. When I was looking at the other images that are useable as replacements I thought they had to be individually set up. The best I could do was recolor them but then they didn't look so good so changed my mind.

Knowing this will help my next attempt whenever that is.

Thanks Scott.

So, create your main graphic, then crop it into five square blocks 512x512 and save it as a transparent PNG. There's a free download app called "WoWImage" (you can google for it, I'm afraid I don't have a link handy) which you can then drag your PNGs onto and it will convert them to BLP which is WoW's native texture format. You can also drag a BLP onto it and it will convert it to PNG... neat little program.
