You can do it fine. What's the RGB for the grey you want? If you know that, there are lots of sites that can tell you the hex for it. Here's one. . . http://www.321webmaster.com/colorconverter.php

You can make skins on any platform. I use linux and only test it on windows at the end to make sure there are no major bugs and to test stuff like the media library. I just changed the skins directory to the network drive on my linux box.

Oh, and in the "skinning tips and tricks" forum there's a thread somewhere about changing .zip to .wsz and vice versa. It's very easy.

Are you sure you are ready for this big thing called "making a Winamp skin"? Looks to me you have a lot to learn before you proceed with taking on new stuff. Take your time, there is absolutely NO HURRY.

Learn how to use different programs, including paint programs, winzip, cursor programs, winzip, operating systems, winzip, did I mention winzip?

BTW, a wsz file is exactly the same as a zip file, the only difference is the extension.

Okay, your ships do look like ships, but having gray come out, presumably to be smoke, makes it look more like a skyscraper is growing out of a ship's ass than anything else. If you change the gray to more flame-like colors, like orange, yellow and red, it'll give a more convincing blast off.
Secondly, the stars (I'm assuming that's what the pac-man pellets above the ship are) changing size arbitrarily doesnt make any sense.
Much better than your previous attempts, though.

Hey, one thing...try not to use that "rezise" tool on the spaceship fumes...it looks,a bit bad...
...try to make it go up as the rocket...
a second advice, Try making the stars get darker gradualy ,not disapear and apear like magically, maybe if you use less stars the skin woul look a bit better...try to make them in different sizes, and positions...you could also use constelations...to decorate the unusable parts of the skin...(like the midle of the EQ...
and one more advice, you could put the earth more down(in order not to cross with the EQbars..

Edit 1:Sorry Mik!, I didn't want to be bad, just trying to help, No offense.
Edit 2: YeaH, you're right Mr Jones, the EDIT Button is VERY importan(at least for me)

You decided to quit the space skin, even though it was half decent to make a different skin that looks like psychedelic tiger skin. And that skin is full of bugs. Is that not the opposite of progress?

You know, I'm almost the last person you want to get bitchy at here. So, your school system's f*cked up. Trust me, you DON'T know what you're talking about. Unless you live in Croatia/some other European countries. Which you almost certainly don't. So, you're pissed at your mom. Well, unless she's a 1.95m tall male Croat who likes dogs, I'm not her, and even if she is I'm not, so if you're frustrated with her, release your prepubescent frustration on her, or your brother or the wall of your house, and try to act half decent while you're here.

I would've helped you with that hopeless mess of a skin, but now, I just don't feel like it.
