Hi there Ioic,

You can have any image you would like for your theme. You don't even have to give any inclination that your theme is a child theme. You may want to for a heads up or you may not. The choice is entirely up to you, especially if it is going to be for your use only.

ok thanks ! It's just that i follow the instructions given on the video and we see on the video the twenty thirteen theme with a sentence across the image of the child theme.

Hi Loic,

The image you see in the video is made especially for the purpose of indicating, that it is a child theme.

I am currently working with the Yoko theme. And for my child theme, I right clicked on the existing Yoko-theme picture and saved it. Then I opened the saved picture in an image editing software (in my case photoshop) Applied a semi opaque white layer and wrote Yoko Child Theme across it. I then uploaded this new picture in my child theme, so that I am able to tell which theme is the original Yoko and which is the one I'm working on.

I Hope this makes sense :)
