I like it! it's soft and eye pleasing. Can you also make a subskin with all the usual min/max/close buttons on the right side of the toolbar? thanks

A good skin. The titlebar, titlebar buttons, and startmenu are very well done. Lime subskin is slightly more complete and in my opinion, the best of the three subskins.

Graphical issues: the scrollbar stands out as an issue for two reasons - the arrows used in the scrollbar buttons are jagged (not as smooth as the rest of the skin feels), and the tips of the scrollbar have some overlap of the background - upsetting the rounded look. The taskbar is another item that says "I don't belong". It doesn't have the same colors or highlights as the rest of the skin. Finally, the Peach subskin highlights the same as the main subskin in the StartMenu, whereas the Lime subskin highlighted *correctly.*

Overall, it's a good skin that could use some work to make it more complete and consistent.

Todd, before you start being such a heavy critic, I think you should make at least one skin so that you know what is involved.

Chas: You dont have to have made any skins to notices graphical flaws or any kind of errors there might be in any type of skin.

Snowman, in this particular case, I agree. The scroll bar button arrows are really messed up. I think it has to do with the image being too big and it was squished. The same happens in the system buttons.

I was just saying that if someone is going to be overly critical of a skin, they should spend the time to see how long of a process it takes to create a skin. In this case, I don't think it is unfairly or overly critical. And, the author didn't actually create the skin.

So if I want to be a movie critic, I need to make a movie first?

I Love this skin, and the task bar is one of the reason, every one to their own, however I would love to see start menu with same graphics/background as menu dropdowns etc, other than that have not changed for about 2 months, even with the bits I don,t like, thanks for a great skin, for those who don't like certain features you can always buy a copy of skin studio and make your own changes, with permission from author, as many people do, thats the beauty of windowblinds, you can customise to your own tastes.
