It happens with some old skins due to changes in how Winamp handles the skins but it can be fixed by changing some files inside the .wsz (or .zip) archive.

There are a number of Kelly Brook skins, which one do you experience the issue with?

OK. This is how you do it.
  1. extract Kelly_Brook_Wet_n_Sехy.wsz
  2. In the extracted folder, find pledit.txt and open it with Notepad.
  3. Fix the text color in the playlist editor by changing the value of Normal to a lighter shade of blue, e.g. #7D7DFF
  4. Save pledit.txt
  5. Open genex.bmp with an image editor to fix the text color for other windows and the right-click menu:
    enlarge the image to maximum and change pixels 50 and 56 in the top row to a lighter shade of blue (e.g. #7D7DFF as you did for Normal in pledit.txt).
  6. Save genex.bmp
  7. Copy the kelly folder to C:\Windows\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Skins
You may as well want to change the light-grey pixels 54 & 64 in genex.bmp to black.

Have a look here

you already know where the colours are , all you need to do is change them in another code

Are you saying that after editing genex.bmp the media library became green and black? If so then your edited genex.bmp is probably incompatible with Winamp.

Open the edited genex.bmp in IrfanView and save it.

Gimp has a ton of options for saving bmps, most of which don't work in Winamp.
