After you choose a theme that defines the basic look and feel of your online store, you can use the theme editor in your Shopify admin to customize the theme to suit your unique brand. With the theme editor, you can preview your theme, make changes to your theme settings, and add, remove, edit, and rearrange content. For more information about which sections and settings are available for your theme, refer your theme's documentation.
If your theme doesn't include settings for the changes that you want to make, and you're comfortable with HTML, CSS, and Liquid, then you can edit your theme code.

- Make sure that you understand what level of support is available.
- Learn about the requirements and best practices for uploading images.
