How to simplify the installation of Magento theme?

It is undeniable that putting one theme in is far from easy for Magento users. You have to take a range of steps to complete that process. The first is copy the whole necessary files into Magento folder and then create static blocks, or edit homepage, make up banner, etc. In some worse cases, you exactly keep all guided steps but the result is not as same as design.

Is there any ways to visualize the installation of Magento theme and make it become easier?


Imagine that you have a new template and you want to set up it for your own store. Before logging in backend you need to extract files into Magento folder. A guiding pop-up appears and asks you to install theme. What you have to do is choose options and click into Next button. After several manipulations of mouse clicks, the template is completely installed on your web-site with sufficient blocks, banner as the original design. That must be very fantastic.
