How to change GTA:VC menu background

Hi everyone,

In this tutorial I'd like to show you how to change Grand Theft Auto Vice City (GTA:VC) background.

Necessary software:
» Adobe Photoshop
» TXD workshop

Step #1

 First of all, you gotta find an image you like to replace the default background. Its size should be 512x512 pixels (width x height).

Step #2

 Run Photoshop

Step #3

(Continue to Step #4, if your image is already 512x512 pixels!)
   Editing (changing image size):
 3.1. Open your image (CTRL + O or File > Open...)
