XF 1.5 Child style & image change question

    I'm new to the admin side of XF and have a question regarding child style.

    I am going to make some changes to a style so I know it is best to create a child style so my changes won't be lost in an upgrade of that style.

    However, if I want to change some of the colors of the images/icons (in photoshop) and change a couple of the images a style uses to fit my style needs, so how would be the best way to do that so the changes aren't lost on style upgrades? A child style would still use the parent style's images if I am correct, so I don't know how to have the child use a different set of images.

    I can copy the image/icon and make the changes to the copy and not the original but don't know where these should go.

    I am pretty sure I have confused some of you, sorry for that.

    I just don't know how to do this exactly as this is something new to me. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

    You can put your images in a directory outside of your style.
    And than point the @imagepath to this location.
    Like this it will not overwritten at an update.
