I like your background and I love the vis/time area. The CButtons need to be changed. Also the text shoudl be like the numbers.bmp

Btw, this is a stupid question, but ah well.

How do you crop the postbar down?

Just resize the bitmap. For a 3 px high posbar area, make the bmp 307x3px

Sorry, I personnally don't think the cbuttons fit at all. At least not at the moment.

hmmm... looks a bit like my first skin (link below)
about the posbar, you can't make it shorter if thats what you mean although you can make it skinier like skinme! said.

I think the cbuttons are the best part. they just need to be better incorpoated into the skin.

I like the cbuttons too

but it looks like they're from a different skin

I think you should make them fit this skin better

I like what you've done with the posbar and vol/bal

only the texture on the posbar button seems a bit odd

and the mono/ster thing stands out a bit...maybe you should add a border and/or somne red to it?

that gradient fill comes in real handy with "matalic" skins. the only bug i have against it is the open file button seems too low against the rest of the cbutton controls.. maybe align them all together
