    Glad to help. I did it because I think skinning or skin editing is something that really anyone can do but People are intimidated by uneccessarily. Plus, I hope it takes a bit of the pressure off Guino to have to help people with small basic changes they can make to their own Skins.

    I chose the presentation method because I think it creates a focused environment where people pay more attetion and retain more detail. One thing at a time.

    BTW, any feedback would be appreciated too. Especially from those who are not really familiar with skinning in the first place. I want to know if this helps and/or if I left something unclear.

    it's still unclear how the numeric points are determined for positioning, but I haven't had my system in yet to play with it, so I don't know if that's self explanitory or not when in the editor....

    The numbers represent the pixels on screen, counting from the top left.

    No turbo, counting would suck! You are right though, I should have mentioned this stuff. Good feedback, thank you. The way I determine the postition is by reading the coordinates of the graphics in Paint Shop Pro or Photo Shop. I usually skin at work and we have PSP. Down in the bottom left corner of the screen, it reads the coordinates of your cursor. I'll add this info soon to the tutorial. Thanks.

    ahhh, because counting pixels would have been worse than having to learn a programming language

    Most image editors provide you with the X,Y position of the cursor over an image.. in M$ Paint, it is displayed at the bottom right of the window... in PhotoShop it is displayed in the information dialog... I don't believe I've ever seen a graphics editor that didn't show this information one way or another.. so shoudn't be hard to get used to it... Also, when you open the image on a screen in the skin editor, it displays the position/size info on the top left, but all you have to do there is select the region of the screen, so you really don't need to know the numbers..
