As Sephiroth pointed out.. The artest Idea of a good idea may differ from that of the programmers...
I may consider a joint venture in the furture but for now.. I am learning more about how trillian displays a skin by doing both my self...
MD pointed out in the tutorial that he discovered that loading many small images in to trillian is slower and takes more memory that loading a few large ones.. I am going to attempt to lump all my art in one image file... I am hoping this will solve 3 problems
2. Memory use
3. Having one image should make it easyer to replace artwork for the skin.. be it a color change or creating a new look... Any artist should be able to load one image into photo shop or photo paint and relpace art all they want without touching the code..
It would be nice if everyone learned a little XML and did everything them on thier own but from the complaints I have seen in the forum I think some artist whould could do some really interesting stuff, are getting turned off of skinning trillian because of the code... I only see 2 solutions for these artists.. Team up with a coder or replace art in some form of template..
