if you can not post a thumbnail to it then just post the url and people can click on it.

i host my images on my webserver, so i make a thumbnail and the fullsize, and upload them both to my server. then here i will make the image the thumbnail and make it a link to the full size.

get what i am saying?

I'll just ignore how you don't like my adium window

that is the elisha cuthbert webkit view...If you go into the adium forums at www.adiumx.com its in there under the "boom...pretty" post.

it may also be included in the resources folder of webkit, but i'm not sure. I like to stick with sienna.

Haha, well, it was the setup of the text, not the picture that attracted me to it. Let's just say those pictures aren't my type...

Anyway, I downloaded the webkits and they still aren't working. Instead of the variables subbing in the message, time, and name, it just says %time or %message. Does it with both views I tried out, too...

Nothing inconsistent about tiSkin. It's programs that use their own resources to draw the gui widgets and such.

It's a pain to modify them ALL.

And some you can't.

I value consistency over "cool looks"

That is why I stopped themeing awhile back.

Apple should REQUIRE people to use the Extras.rsrc.

But first Apple would have to do it themselves first. They do this more than most. And they tell others not to.

How many GUI ideas does OS X need anyhow? How many different button designs?

I miss OS 9s consistency.

Ok, I gotta ask you. Why this strange line breaks? It makes your posts sound poetic almost

But yeah, it's a problem, and one that should be solved. But luckily, with SS 1.2, I'm sure that at least with the top themes, most apps you use daily will be skinned eventually, automatically. Once, it was nothing. Then, it was Safari. Now, it'll be Safari, iChat, Addressbook, Mail, iTunes, Quicktime, DVD Player, etc. So it's definitely getting better.

One of the guys on the Adium board had to say this:

"I had the same problem as moofman. I fixed it by going into the Content and NewContent files, and adding a "%" after %sender, %time and %message."

Haven't tried it yet...

The drive is World of Aqua Rev.2, but the folder icon looks to me to be the work of one Hein Mevissen. Too bad that he stopped publicly releasing his icons.

Whoa! That image you posted is huuuuuuuge when I made it bigger. All pixelated and far too big. Maybe something wrong with the image file? Or my setup?

I used this desktop pic for a while, Can't remember where
I borrowed it from - maybe 'pixelgirlpresents' but I
could be wrong - Did you create it or borrow it as well ?

I prefer the in your face color version and I cropped it
so there was no black top/bottom, but I did no flip'in.

Kate,
whoa. these are great. i wish i could take/make pictures like that. *envy* i especially like "Peach" and "portrait of N." and "apple". Can't decide which one i love the most. all these images kinda remind me of the old days and that one famous b/w photo of Audrey Hepburn from "Breakfast At Tiffany's". Are any of these for sale? or is it possible to get em in lil higher res for desktop use?? /me wants.
i think i just have to add another "whoa!"

It is possible. Yes.

I can put one into the download section or send it as an attachment. Not all of these are in high resolution since some are scanned from old small prints and even film. And I must look into my digital library for the bigger ones. My picture library currently is 10.000+ and a bit of a mess.

'Portrait of N' can be had as a desktop if you like. I don't sell these, but I give some away as digital pictures if kindly asked for. However I would not want to see them anywhere else but solely for private use and enjoyment. A desktop is alright with me. Ok?

What size? 1024 x 768? What gamma? Mac TFT/CRT or else?

It seems those serenity icons are windows only. If you converted them do you think you could send me a copy? Thanks.

What is the theme/wallpaper used?

Further, I assume that is Fruit Menu being used for the "start menu?"
