Sizes for each separate part of skin

Friday, November 6, 2009 by diva42 | Discussion: Skinning

I am completely stuck with skinstudio 6.4 I was told to study other peoples skins which I have done with a few, I want to know what

Size to make each individual section ex. start menu top what size am I supposed to create it in photoshop?

Ther are no tutorials that I found to help the wiki doesnt help me nothing online leads me to understanding how to even make a

beggining there has to be a starting point what size is the start menu each skin Ive looked at all have different sizes so how am I

supposed to know if I should make it 1024x768 or 300x500 really there has to be a set size somewhere.

The only thing I do know is the wallpaper sizes which doesn't help me in the least as that is not sent into skinstudio for adding to

the skin.

 

What am I failing to understand?

 

Thanks, Lisa

Here is what I'm talking about the edge around button is terrible and it's the original image for the luna skin so I have no idea what the problem is

Put some painting margins around that puppy!  Looks like you need about 3-4 pixels.

It would be too tempting to bag the skin and head for the liquor cabinet if I were listenting to J Geils (most of the old rock, for that matter).  Conditioned response -- I learned to drink when old rock was new -- I guess I'm Pavlov's lush.  When I skin I usually listen to Neoclassical -- Bach and Beethoven done with electric guitars in speed metal fashion.  My husband turned me on to some Yngwie Malmsteen, and later on I found Kevin Ferguson's "Strad to Strat" with the most awesome version of Vivaldi's Summer I've ever heard.  I think because my day job involves listening to people talk all day, I prefer instrumentals when I'm skinning.
