What version of SkinStudio (SKS) did you use. In SKS 5 get no previews or images as it states it is a UIS1 skin, it does open and display in SKS6, but when try to open images to check them using edit button, Paint Shop Pro X almost opens then just closes.

It looks like you have used bitmaps with magic pink for everything, much better to use pngs so have true transparency and can use anti-aliasing and feather to make nice smooth images. SKS will convert pngs into required tgas when import images.

UIS1 is and outdated format, I suggest you start again using UIS2 format, it is much more flexible and allows for more complete skinning.

Also why have you checked that this is WB6 ready, all/most older skins will work with WB6, WB6 ready means the skin should have features that are WB6, the only WB6 feature is the explorer background the rest is about a WB4 skin.

My, my, aren’t we a testy group of individuals. While I sort of agree with Kwyjibo’s comment, I think his method of delivery could have been better. Cavan1 and Xiandi provided helpful insight on how to improve the skin, good job you two. I don’t see a lot of difference between saying the skin hurts his eyes to calling someone an ahole. Two wrongs don’t make it right. Kwyjibo: the unwritten posting law appears to be, “if you don’t have some thing good to say, shut the f**k up”. “Flaming” is not encouraged within the community but I must say you did cause some minor flare-ups. OzChild: congratulations on your first post.

Is that what it makes?...It always makes me irritable. By the way wimpy...if you agree with that comment that makes you just as rude. Why the need for insults when someone is just trying to learn something?

Scuse me wimpy! Don't think Me calling kwyjibo an asshole is called for? Maybe you're right, but if the shoe fits...... OzChild asked for contructive critisizm, not untalented people ragging on him. Comments like that really burn my ass!

I used Skin Studio 6 free version.
Hey OzChild; when create a new skin in SKS6 select WindowBlinds advanced skin, this will be a UIS2 skin (basic skin is UIS1). If you give this skin a retry as advanced you will have to remake some of the images as there are difference between UIS1 and UIS2 images.

I wasn't signaling out your post, I think pretty much all the directed comments was about kwyjibo being an ass. nothing personal intended.

WOW!!! I have never seen such razzing like this from one comment... I think we understand that words hurt but we all must move on and let this go ...let's remember that this is an open forum and freedom of speech is still legal (not to say that the comment that started all of this was appropriate!!) but it's only one opinion... I think this WB needs a little nurturing and it could turn very nice, that's my opinion. I'm not a WB designer but love the Windowblinds community and all that they have done (or I wouldn't have bought my Object Desktop!) I'm a downloader and love it....But like I said let's just MOVE ON AND LET BYGONES BE BYGONES!Take care everyone!! OHH and OzChild Keep up the good work!!!

I did choose advanced option at the start of the skin. When I load up wb6 and load the skin it says it is in uis2.

One must remember: it takes serious guts to even post your first attempt -skin so congratz on that . And I agree with all others saying stuff which isn't constructive in any way is very easy and cheap ( perhaps you can show him how it should be done and post your own 1st skin instead ? ) .

Hey OzChild, I noticed that after posting, there may be some other errors that I am not knowledgeable enough to see that is/are causing SKS5 not to read it as a UIS2 skin.
