I love the colours, but there is a problem with the Start Menu - when I click it, the whole screen freezes up for about 5 or 10 seconds. If this were fixed, I would like to use this WB...

Maybe it lost something in the download I've had it running on my PC for a month now . It took me 3 weeks to get it to upload I have dial up and it times out to fast so I had to keep it small. If you can't get it to work E-mail me and I'll try to send it to you.Email

I too love this but also have the same problem. It hesitates for about 5 to 8 seconds.

~I'm downloading it now. The " freeze up " problem has been an issue with me on almost all blinds I download and apply online. But then after rebooting..its fine. The freeze up occurs when I see object bar importing . Yet I dont have object bar...I recently uninstalled and reinstalled WB. Now we will see if it helped. Love the tie dye btw

I removed it downloaded it from here reinstalled it just like everyone else does. I still don't see the problem you are talking about.Fairyy is right a reboot may fix it ! So sorry to say I can't fix a problem I don't have I tried LOL. The reason I don't put wallpaper in is I use dial up the paper is bigger in size Than the entire skin and most people including me use there own wallpaper. But like my other skins if you really want the wallpaper E-mail me I'll send it to youEmail

Just for your info, when I rebooted today it was still the same. I've never had this happen on any other blind, ever. I tried re-downloading it, re-installing it, re-booting it. Nothing made any difference.
It's a shame as I really like it. Ah well, at lest I still have my favorite to fall back on, Playing With Magic

Try opening it in skinstudio and apply it from there maybe even change the format feel free to play with it hope you can figure it out. You know these computers have a mind of there own Maybe your PC just doesn't like this skin. LOL This is most likely my last skin for a long time I start school 5/23 so I don't think I'll have time to play with skins

~Unfortunately after I rebooted..I didn't get back till now. The problem is still there.
I'm not sure what to make of it. I never saw this before. When you click on start button...your cursor stays there..you cant move it..you just have to wait ..but this happens each time I tried to click on the start button. I hope someone can figure this out cos I really like this tye dye.

Pamela... make sure you delete the animations in your skins, as they can account for a 1/4 of the total size, Window blinds will replace them for the user. Toolbar icons can also go if you want to get it even smaller. My Samuri skin posted on the 11th of this month is only 205 KB and the wallpaper is in the file. Keep up the good work. PS The start menu works fine for me

ourcupoftea, the start menu problem is the jagged edges of programs and places list and more programs background. I had about 5 second freeze when open start menu. Cropped images to remove jagged edges, no more freeze. For slower computers will take longer to draw start menu with the edges you have used.

Thanks for this great skin, ourcupoftea, i,m truly enjoying it on my desktop> 'Tis my cup of tea, LoL. Takes me back to the hippy days and drug induced psychadelic artworks. Never tried the mind bending stuff myself, but certainly enjoyed many of the results, as I do this.
I have no probs with the start menu and all appears to be working well with the skin for me

BTW, my reference to the hippy days was not to imlpy you're on anything, either. Obviously you've the talent to produce such quality without it, please continue whenever possible

I'm so happy!!!!!
I trimmed as Cavan1 said and now it works fine. What disappoints me is the fact that, at only one year of age, my computer is deemed slow. Anyway, got my Tye Dye

You have supplied the solution to many problems even though you were answering others..I had same problems.
This blind was driving me crazy not being able to fix it...but you solved the problem. Rather than crop it..i just filled in all the magic pink with a matching peach color.
This skin is really very pretty and works smooth now. I'm still using it and did a retro screen shot with it.
