help!

Right,
I've desided to make a new skin, all by hand.. readin the forum made me think.. if these lot havein fun makin skins from nothin, I'm missin out on somein.. but I'm stuck on ideas, I've got someones templates which are very helpful! but I'm not sure how to make things to the the right place... do they just go there? or do you have to do some .txt stuff... only ever done skinner skins before, but they do everythin for you. I'm workin thru the main, but just puttin everythin on top of it.. an i no its not gonna be right..

just edit the bmp files, the program will put them where they need to go

if you're having trouble understanding which elements on the bmp files go where in winamp, look at winamps base skin bmp's and you should get a good idea.

also, its a good idea to have a strong paint program - although some mighty good skins come out of MSPaint

check out psp7 at www.jasc.com
or gimp at www.gimp.org (gimp is free)

and good luck on your first "hand made" skin

If anyone can find any of the skins I made please email them to Forevever@aol.com
I can't remember all the names but specifically hunting for Lascivious, and DEVOUR (compilation with Jax) and any in the Impulse series which had 6 total. Auriferous, Gilt, Impulse, Nadir, and 2 others I can't remember but you dig.

You said you had some templates, but regardless, I have to post a link to Template amp. It tells ya where everything goes. Also check out the NSDN, it tells you what everything does. If you get any other questions... feel free to ask away.

Note: In the Template Amp skin you will see a small error, check out the playlist, click the 'Select' button to get ur options up, at the top it says 'Inf', it should say 'Inv'. Just making sure people who are new like Chester know this and if you consider using the Template skin in ur project, dont forget to modify that button.
