States of buttons

Ok, I looked everywhere, but how can I know when my icon is going to be how I made it using the abskin thing. When I make a custom skin, I go to test it, and everything is find until the Back and Forward buttons are no longer disabled. They just get really bright and ugly, but I can't find how to specify what images are for disabled, pushing down etc.
Pretty sure I've got latest version..

The latest skin maker (v11) download link: http://www.avantbrowser.com/release/skins.zip

The disabled icons will be as the normal icons but the browser will remove colour - load the new skin into Avant/Orca and you will see.

Thanks. Here's the picture:

The first is the icon I select to put in, the second is what shows up in the skin-maker, third is how it show up on orca (when disabled), and last is how it ends up when enabled in orca.
Obviously the last one is the one I hope to change.

Maybe something wrong with your original image - can you post it too.

Sorry, could not find where to edit my post, but I'm really confused now. :(
I replaced the back button with a refresh button:

and the same thing happened!

??? I've tried a long time to get the back button working, and I have no clue why it does that.

Yes, I got the same problem with your image. But I fixed it by:

- changing it to a bitmap
or
- changing the colour depth to 24 bit

D: I get an error when trying to extract.
! Unknown method
! Unknown method
! No files to extract

I would change to 24bit BMP, but then I wouldn't get transparency? Can I not put transparency on the Forward/Back arrows?

He didn't say a 24 bit bitmap although it can be a 24 bit bitmap. He said either a 24 bit PNG or a bitmap.

The problem seems to be with using 8bit (256 colour) png images
Your original file was only 8 bit with no transparency..

Well.. I couldn't seem to get 24bit pngs to work, as they didn't show up with any transparency. bmp don't have transparency.. but I finally get the buttons working as 32bit.
Thanks for the help. It's not an amazing skin, but I'll post it when I'm done.
