Just wanted to tell those who are interested that we we will be coming back with New skins, -Very soon !!
I am so glad to hear this of you two! Welcome back, I can't wait to see your new works!
Good that you're coming back! I'd be more excited if there was a free skin now and then, like ALL other masters do.

I for one, can't wait to see what's coming, glad you're still skinning.
Great! Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeves!
I can understand that as I haven't worked in 15 years, I can't even afford to buy skins. Maybe one here and there, but I can't buy all the ones I'd like to buy.
I believe most of us can't either. Luckily there are many others that probably are not on the forums, that do purchase skins... from Tom, Don, Neone6, Kitty, etc. And some are bought as gifts. With that thought, it would be great if the gift purchaser, actually knew if the person received the gift. Some people change their email... and who knows then.
Not the sentiment of the post , just wanted to tell you guys....
-We're Back !
A little late on this thread but why not also create websites? You can make more money doing that then creating skins. However, doing both would boost your income if you like to design, do coding, and work with people.
Start with small buisness sites and work your way up to bigger more complicated buisness sites. People will also pay good money for personal sites. The hard part is finding those people.
-Coding is not designing. -We do websites but use softare similar to "SkinStudio" to create them, however work is slow on that side of the business because people do not realize the software nowadays is so good it turns out like any other webpage, they wanna stick to Wordpress (coding) and as I said Coding is NOT Design. -Sure you code and end up with a design if you have the images, buttons etc, but it's not designing. -We Design, and that's as they say -That.
yeah.. not to mention, theres 748 million website developers out there already vying for work...
I wouldn't count too much on making windows themes for too very much longer tho… as u probably know, less and less people are using apps like Windowblinds.
I got into application design quite a while ago.. and never looked back.
Once u get clients, and impress\please them.. they're pretty much going to stick with you.
Find ur niche... mine was Audio plugin and application development and design.
It's good because my hobby\passion is also using these plugins for my music and enjoyment.
So I basically get paid to work on what I love to also.. use.
Am I getting rich... aww hell naw.. lol.. but its a job and I don't have to sit in traffic, listen to a boss, or deal with office politics.
I should have said .css not coding, my mistake. Vstyler makes a good point with his post though. There are a lot of people doing it.
Andy, I circled the place where there are issues. Thank you!
What OS are you using ?
Hm... That's very disturbing to see... As I have Skinned it Following all the rules and have done it "by the book" and it shows perfectly on my pc I'm not really sure what I can tell you...What OS are you using ?
For starters Add/make room for 10-11 programs in Start 10 configuration, make sure you don't have any special settings for anything concerning Pc's Text-size, all settings concerning how your pc handles the graphics should be reset to standard, no zoom or anything. If you have settings changed in Windowblinds set them to default as well -Unfortunately I think the problem's at your end Barbara. But we'll fix it.
As you can see from my screenshots and presentation, none of what I am seeing in your shot is happening to me.
-While your at it make sure there's no Malware n shit there too.
But don't worry, I'm not going anywhere until we got this sorted, even if I have to Change the Skin for you Barb.
Hi Andy, I'm not worried. Apparently know one else has this problem. So probably you are correct that it is something in my pc.
Start panel... has 13 programs on the left side and on the right side ...documents, etc. I have windows 7 home premium. I never change any settings for windowblinds or my pc in general.
I know how it is supposed to look, thank you to your screenshot/presentation!
Thank you for checking it out, Andy!
You might try logging out or rebooting while the skin is loaded. I've had start menus get a little whacked on me, and they won't straighten out until I've rebooted while the skin is loaded.
-I want this issue to be fixed, you obviously bought my blind, I want to see a screeny looking decent.
Windows 7 is skinning colors on the startmenu a little different, but THAT screenshot is a Major disaster, also on your screeny I only counted 7 programs, I want you to set it to 10-11. -If that screenshot is showing a start 10 Menu set to 13 programs as you say then...... :
