Okay, so graphics may not be my fortae, but, this is my very first attempt at creating a skin with the skin creation software provided by yourselves.

Oh yeah and, it's a Michael Jackson one, hehe :D

Please try not to be too harsh :wink:

hehe, thankyou :wink:

I must confess however, you've got the guys I work with over at Freeware Arena, and Fort Freeware, to thank for my being here (Fort Freeware kinda got me to see sense and use a decent browser, and Freeware Arena got my creative juices flowing again, where graphics are concerned (and as you can tell, I'm still no good at them, hehe)).

I'm not sure if you guys already know this btw but, I've found when I click on "Stretch" when selecting images, it doesn't actually stretch them? (doesn't seem to change the images at all).

Orange......or black? (personally I like the orange one the best (black is my favourite colour, but I seem to have screwed that one up).

Imho orange looks better too :) .

And as for the stretch thing: yes, it doesn't actually stretch in the Skin Factory, but when you save the skin in Avant it will stretch. It's one of the problems of ABSF, but not big deal...

Is it expected that a skin like Dark Stripe would look different on 803 beta 8 and 802v207?

For example, in 803 beta8 the tabs are mostly black. In 802v207 they have a very marked white streak which makes the tab text a little difficult to read.
I have my tabs below the Standard Butons bar by the way.

I can't think of other reason that you have a different toolbar configuration. For example, are you sure the icons are the same size? no other toolbars between? After all, it's the same bitmap so there can't be much difference... :?

The Avant setup is the same on each machine and the screen resolution is the same.
It's not really a problem, just a curiosity I suppose. There must be something different somewhere in my setups.
If I work it out I'll post the answer.
