Wow, that really is nice. I've never been good at image editing, so I've always just used Skinner to have 'flat black'. (also haven't tried nUI, but if I ever come back to wow I may have to try it).

quiet yourself down you know you will be back, after a little while and some kind of change or even know change to the UI policy you will have the craving and you will come back.

Thanks everyone!

This is somewhat like complementing the body shop that did the pinstriping on the Ferrari... but thanks regardless.

Wow . way cool. I really need to refresh my artistry skills. The old saying .. 'what you don't use you lose' .. thats me and art. Stopped painting 20 yrs ago and forgotten everything.

And yeppers a little step by step would go down well at my end

Now if only I can find my Paintshop Pro XI discs. Go on vacation for 3 months and everything goes missing.

Think people would be interested in that?

Btw, mains are a tauren and Nelf druid... so tribal art sort of fits. I'll do different ones too.
I'm one of those odd people that can't let go of Fubar, so I need that top graphic lol. I'm pretty sure there are some here that also use Titan Panel.

Oh absolutely. A step by step tutorial (with screenshots?) would be most useful! May I request an uncut template file (with layers if needed) in psd format? That would just rock.

Yeah, I plan on it! I'm trying to perfect the positioning of the content boxes first.

@ Paantheaus

I love the new graphic layout that you made. I am interested in the transparent console and the texture on the lower portion. The tribal graphic was great but would need to be a bit smaller for setup. Very nice work.
So where and when can I get it. *taps foot *

I look forward to more great stuff from nUI and all its supporters. Thanks for the great work Scott */hug*

People who give hugs are awesome in my book! I tend to be careful with giving out mine lately though... I get tired of explaining that I'm old and can hug whoever I like lol.

the first skin

Hey I thought the first skin SS you linked was awesome, anyway to get that uploaded or emailed?
Don't want to start a riot, but I was never really into the tribal thing.
Thanks in advance.

an attempt...

This is my first attempt with GIMP, I am still learning how to make patterns, and make pre made patterns work with GIMP.
I think this is horrible, but I was just trying to see if I could do it.

the first SS is just a generic red leather tile replicated
the second SS shows the carbon fiber texture I actually drew, it is only on the second panel, and I am going to work on it more tonight.
this is my first day working with this kinda thing so don't be too cruel

Well... you got it working... that's 3/4 of the battle... now you just have to get the image the way you want it and you're golden.

Quick Question

How do I make the panels just blank in certain areas? Do I need to cut out those parts? Thanks

You would use transparency in the original PNG file.

I use Photoshop myself. However, Gimp is very very good and free.

Feel free to holler if you have any questions... though the beginning of this thread pretty much contains all of the info anyone needs to create a custom dashboard.

Oh... and you asked earlier about a dashboard request thread... I have no problem with that at all.
