Thanks for the feedback on the style and the compressed exe question. Those rounded corners caused some comment last time round. I kinda like it though. As for colour, I have never been able to settle on colours I like and usually just end up using grey. The grey in this one is 208,208,208 which is a little lighter than MS standard 192,192,192 and gives a slightly softer look.
I forgot to mention that the theme really only works with the taskbar at the top of the screen. I havn't optimised it for side or bottom use.
I made this style so I could have a classic look but still be able to change the buttons. This is what I missed most after I left Win98 behind. Its kind of meant to emulate the look of win98 combined with eppie.
If you have photoshop, go to Image > Mode > Indexed Color, which will bring up a dialog. You choose "Exact" for the pallete and don't have transparency if it's a bitmap. This usually cuts the size of things 1/5 or so for me, though too lazy to use
Yes schminimalischt, it seems that is all PSP can do at present (ver 7). I've just got photoshop 7.0 now so I'll attempt to cut the size down as my first learning project. Does cuting the colour depth down actually improve performance/redraw?
I've been working on an updade to the theme, adding slightly more colour and a few tasteful gradients. Never thought of it as a mac style - but I guess it is! Might release it this weekend.
Thanks for the kind comments kmr.
