This is from the 'One Piece At A Time Part II' forum thread.
I started the thread along with three very talented skinners who offered to help me learn how to make Windowblinds. My hope is that others who want to learn how to make a Windowblind or are having trouble figuring it out can also benefit from the thread and files.
This first thread covers the design only of the Start Panel & Taskbar areas of a Windowblind.
The second part covers the Title Bars and Window Frames.
I am uploading the actual PSD files for anyone who wants to follow along, learn from, play around, or whatever.
I invite everyone to follow the threads and if you want, make your own contribution (Rainlendar, Docks, Etc.)
A special thanks to 2of3, Vampothika, and neone6 for sharing their knowledge, support, and most of all patience with me. And a thanks to everyone else who has stopped in to help and offer tips.

There is also information there on some of the techniques used in the design with links to tutorials as well.
This download contains a zip with one psd file (in layers) of the Title Bars and Window Frame and includes all you see in the preview.
