Sick of the lame ass photo based skins!

I am sick of all the photo based skins. None of them ever get high staff ratings. These cheap, half ass photo based skins should get their own category and should not be included in the "new skins" section. There is nothing unique about them. Anyone that can click a mouse button can create a photo skin. Please gods of moderation and Nullsoft, give me a customization option/personalization feature that allows me to hide all photo based skins.

Am I the only one that's sick of them?

Acctually, photo skins, if done correctly, can be among some of the best skins out there, it takes a shit load of work to manipulate an image to fit around the crap ass layout of the winamp gui.

Don't make me list all the decent photo based skins I know, it could take some time.

I think there is a real need for a skinning bitchlist... we seem to get a post about skinner.exe, submission times, or whatnot about once an hour.

Not really...If people bothered read the faq there would be no posts about submission times.

You can't force people to read the FAQ, unfortunately.

what people like you chose to forget is that if people did not like them they would not download them im getting a little sick of this its not skinning if you use exe. blah blah blah
if i find that a skin i have done is not being downloaded i remove it.

Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop are the favourites, although there are a number of skinners out there who use MSPaint as well.
