All about K-Meleon icons, skins and throbbers.
[quote=jsnj] [quote=guenter] disrupted and I have completely finished a PhoenityAura port - If possible I would like to add this alpha transparency feature. He is in holiday on Cyprus. 1.) Which tools did you use for seamless alpha transparency? [b]Gimp 2.6 for Windows.[/b] 2.) Can I choose magic pink for alpha transparent color? [b]I don't think so. In Gimp, if I have to make a certain area transparent, I use color to alpha[/b] p.s. K-Meleon supports the layout (rows above each other, see image below) of the Firefox png. If we find a good conversion tool - we could convert Firefox skins to K-Meleon more easily. [b]I didn't know that. Great news.[/b] Without a good tool some rounded icons of Aura did not turn out well and it had to be done again in the traditional way with magic pink. This image below is an automatic convert png to alpha channeled bmp (renamed gif so that forum accepts it). [b]What tool did you use to automatically convert it? I've had no problems with Gimp directly saving pngs as 32bit alpha transparent bmps.[/b] [img]http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/file.php?2,file=134,filename=mainbar.bmp.gif[/img] Just rename and use as bmp. Problem zones: the history/clock, the stars... Used picture lines start at: main.bmp main.bmp main.bmp BTW. 1.) What would You think about offering older skins updated as single archive. 2.) What would You think about including the new skins into the existing collection of skins and offer an archive of all known skins as single download. [b]Not a problem, but I'd definitely need to update them. This is the only one I've done with alpha-transparency. Sounds like a large download for people though. BTW, some limitations exist so far with KM's implementation of alpha-transparency. Menuicons aren't supported (it's really needed for these because we can't control the menu background like we can for toolbars). The findcold & findhot images for the find bar aren't supported. And macro created toolbar buttons aren't supported. I've attached a file with some Gimp converted Phoenity Aura alpha-trans bmps. Let me know if they work better.[/b] [/quote][/quote]
