    where do you skinners get...

    icons and graphics and stuff... I wanna try to make a simple skin for HTPC, I was wondering if you guys can share some sources where i can obtain some high quality icons and graphic stuff... All of the skins are sized for 800... So, if i make them bigger, it would look sorta blurr....

    Thanks....

    What kind of graphics are you looking for?

    Be creative with the image search, like instead of searching for "audio icon" search "music icon", "music note", "headphones", "bookshelf speaker", etc. I found a lot of the high res stuff this way.

    What res are you going to run the HTPC at? I'm looking to make a skin for my HTPC, and I noticed my tv's native res is only 1024x768 (it's a 720p Samsung DLP) so there's no point in making the skin any larger than that. Really that's not much more than 800x600. So the images that are stretched aren't stretched that bad.

    nice find.... iconshot seems to have whole bunch... Thanks..

    monkeyracer, i don't have a TV yet nor htpc... but eventually i'll get both...Hopfully..

    For TV, 1920 x 1080i would be good... I tried 800x600 stretched it full 1920x1080i on my notebook.. Not bad.. but.. graphics doesn't look sharp... blur image... A friend of mine is working for Samsung.. He can probably hook me up a good deal... 52" LCD topnoch spec. for around 1600 is what he told me last time... I know costo has 65 samsung dlp for 1800 wiith a coupon... I think it's a model behind.. but that's still freaking awsome deal... but i prefer lcd... Looks sharper...

    Mine's setup for 1280x720.

    Here's a sample:


    I'm reworking this skin for my carPC w/ some added features since I really like the way it came out on my HTPC.

    ...and just becase I'm real proud of this one, a full screen background preview-er w/ drop down menu.

    I've compiled a font that has a lot of symbols as well, and since it's a font it scales well.

    Check it out:
