Mix Fix

sorry for the new thread but its urgent!

ive been messing around with my monitors contrast/brightness and my skins contrast/brightness.......

this is what ive come up with as a fix, its usable on dark screens and doesnt look washed out on brighter screens.

please, please, please comment....even just a "ok, its better, now shutup" would do.

the only reason im even bothering is because i am deeply in love with how it came out and im heartbroken(dont laugh! lol)that some people havent been able to appreciate it the way i meant them to.

It looks better, yes... but I don't think you should have publised it as a new skin, especially since "colour variations" are not allowed in 1k1ws...

Many who live deserve death, some who die deserve life - can you give it to them?
Then be not so quick to deal out death in judgement.

You may as well remove it now. Once max sees it, he will almost definitely remove one. It's a rule of his that only one version of a skin goes up, except when it's two substantially different versions. Your best option would be, once it's published at winamp.com,to post a link to it there at 1001.

As for the skin, the bright parts are now really bright and somewhat neony, but still, it's good. I think the remix is grand, and so I'll be downloading this version so that I can use it

Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.

All my skins: @ winamp.com @ 1K1WS @ Deviantart.com

Probably too late but . . .

I definitely like the new version better, especially the glint off the glass. Did you draw that freehand? I've always wanted to create something like that . . .

But (ah, there's always a but . . .) I still think the skin needs more contrast, especially in the playlist. The song titles are still pretty hard to read. The eq bars could stand to have a bit more contrast too, though they're not quite as bad.

Of course it could just be me. I think I have a love of contrast. I tend to see things in black and white.

Yes please, I use the low contrast skins at night when I'm sitting here chatting err, wisely budgeting my time, yeah, that's it...

(I'll probably snag that bottom left blue too if it's one you actually use)

How about attach here? Or is too fat?

Anyway, I feel lime green is a nice colour. Though lime juice has the potential to taste like acid. So I don't know. I'm undecided.

question: how are you changing the colorus so easily? Are you just desating and adding a hue/sat layer on top or what?

yeah, either i use the hue/saturation or i use selective colors.

and if you want you can take this pic in PS and put a hue/sat layer over it and make a cutsom color for yourself, then take that hue/sat layer and put it on every bitmap in the skin file...

selective color is another kind of adjustment layer that will only alter specific colors.....for example it can change everything thats red to blue...but it often makes colors look kind of dull, thats why i use hue/sat more often.

...and am i lazy for using hue/sat, or for telling how to do it yourself??
