- Refraction Custom Extensions (refraction-extensions-j15.zip) This package contains each of the individual custom extensions included in the Refraction template release.
- Refraction Source PNG(s) (refraction-sources.zip) This zip contains the source PNG(s) for making modifications and customisations to the images in the template (and if applicable, the font used for the logo). You will need an image editing software (preferably Adobe/Macromedia Fireworks) to utilise the Source PNG files.
