A brand new feature in WindowBlinds 7 , and one of the coolest is the ability to add textures to a WindowBlinds theme. This opens up a whole new area of desktop customization as it can easily bring a new look to old or new themes. WindowBlinds current has 20 textures available, and you can easily add your own for even more advanced customization.
Texture files can be found in: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Stardock\WindowBlinds\Textures
A tip for creating textures:
For those of you who want to make .texture files, you should make a copy of an existing .texture file and open it in notepad. You will then see there are three sections. One for the taskbar, one for the startmenu and one for the frames. The images do not have to be the same for all three.
Edit the file pointing to new images (saved as .TGA in the same folder) and you have a new texture.
For skin authors, you can also put .texture files in your skin folder and they will only show for that skin.
The screenshots below show an example of a theme without and with a texture applied.
Here is a video example.
