We recommend the manual upgrade method. With the auto upgrade method your images will get overwritten. With the manual upgrade method you will still need to move the image files from the previous version but if you have a problem with the new version you can just switch back to the previous. Either method will overwrite changes made to the theme files however.

OK, thank you. Will updating manually change the Atahualpa Theme Options I made in the dashboard?

Theme options are stored in the database not the theme files. Your settings will be preserved.

However you should always do a database backup before an upgrade.
