Monthly Skinning Competition Discussion -- #4 ended


Recommended Posts

I voted for Google. I would however like to do getpaint.net more. I would do a complete makeover of the site. It would probably be 80% CSS and 20% of the origional website (and of course a lot of pdn work).

Are we making actual skins, or just replicating the results?

Although not fully skinable, you can customize the actual look of Paint.NET. Check out this PM I got from Rick some time ago:

Think anyone would be interested in a How-To for changing all the icons in Paint.NET?

Here's a quick example. Create a directory, C: / Program Files / Paint.NET / Resources / en-US

Place a a 16x16 PNG in there called Icons.MenuFileNewIcon.png -- put anything you want in it. A smiley face, whatever. Then, restart Paint.NET. Then note that it shows up for the "New" toolbar icon, and for the File->New item.

The How-To would basically include a ZIP file containing all the icons already set up in this naming scheme, so a user could just change the contents of the PNG's instead of hunting down all the right file names.

This isn't a new feature of Paint.NET, btw. This is just the way the resources system was written to accomodate globalization (translation) way back in v2.5 :) I was told on no uncertain terms that it must be possible to override every string and image resource for a translation.

This might be a good Paint.NET contest.

Although, I'd ask Rick for the starter pack of all the default icons... :D

Boltbait: That would be interesting, and very cool, but not part of this competition. In the upcoming contest-- since it looks like we'll be skinning PDN-- the competitor may skin and change the look of anything, icluding the icons. This may be achieved by replacing the icons as you (or actually Rick) mentioned, but the final result must be a screenshot. ;)

usedHONDA: Yeah, Google is a really good one, as is getpaint.net, maybe the next MSC?

Ugh, my connection is going soooo slow, which means that I'll open the first MSC around noon. Sorry!

That sounds pretty fun, uH, but I think that Jake2K would win. :P
