Yanike's LightSource skin for Avant 11 coming soon!!!

Post by yanike » Sun Sep 03, 2006 12:58 pm

This is a preview of my next skin for the new Avant Browser.
I'm still working on it to make it right. Anderson, if you are reading this
post, it would be nice if you could make a visual style with no lines. I
would also like bigger sized icons as well.

Hope you like the new look :)

Yes, nice, just that AB logo - icons are visible, maybe you could use that logo from elsewhere - without those icons.

Yeah, I took out the logo. It would look great there if I could remove all the white border lines and have PNG support for the icons to give them their own borders(Anderson :wink: hint hint).

Another preview has been posted.

Anderson,
I'm still having issues with the skin builder not working for other icons. I'm not gonna release this skin until those issues are fixed and I can add my drawn icons.

Have you tried the latest Skin Factory? I've already made a skin with no problems.

Has it been revised so that it will open a "previously made" skin?


Edit: And speaking of skins...........what's the solution to GetSkinned.....is there an Avant skin site in the works........you know, to upload/download, etc?

What about silver buttons version? I like blue, but...

And another minor issue - menu line background on "New Preview 2".

I'm gonna fix the menu line issue soon. As far as a silver verison goes, I guess I can make it happen.

Also, I've tried the new factory and the go button, search and others still can't be modified.

Those buttons are in the "Other" catagory. There is a scroll down list where you'll find them to the right of the Skin Maker right above the Toolbar Font color.

Sara :D

I finally came up with a skin name that fits it well. I'm gonna be naming the skin "LightSource".

Menu background could be whole black, since buttons background is.

Could you make some screenshot in Compact style please?

compact preview now up for viewing. I'm still changing some icons as well. You can see the new go button which is very cool and the other buttons will be visible by the release. I'll still working on them.

Thanks, some comments again. :)

Title bar text doesn't look very good. Even more important - I think system buttons (minimize, close...) are completely invisible.

Edit: OK, now I see you probably know about it - I think you mean the same invisible buttons :wink: .

I had awesome plans for this skin be I can't do much without the png support. I'm not gonna release an ugly skin. The way it looks now is awesome in some parts and dreadful in others. Thanks for all the comments. I'm gonna fully focus on my all in one browser now. Awesome job with Avant 11, Anderson!
