    My first skin, 4RD-500?

    Hey guys, what do you all think of this skin? I've had to learn both Photoshop and the skin editor but I'm getting the hang of it now. I have an 05 Mustang so I was wanting something that looked stock and kept with the lines of the dash. I'll send the PSD's to any one that wants them but let me know if you all think I'm heading in a good direction or not.

    The day skin has white letters and a blue glow when pressed. The night skin has green letters to match the Ford console buttons and a green glow as well. I have my gauges set to a cool blue cooler that I'm planning on matching for the center window.

    Lastly, what do you all think of the name? I was going to call it "Shaker 500.1" since it's reaplcing a Shaker 500 but I'm liking 4rd-500 now. Read FORD-500. Sounds more like a part number or model.

    Thanks! Here's the eq screen I just made after the first post. I'm still learning what is and what is not possible in RR editor. Can I put the balance, bass, and treble horizontal like in the skin below? I've got a very plane Audio browser screen that is just for testing purposes to make sure the main screen works. So far it's looking good. The skin button is the coolest. I've gotten the most ooh's and ahhh's out of that switching from the day version to the night version. One guy who has always been pure Alpine is waiting for me to finish my install so that I can build him one. He has the bio-lite display so I had to school him with V-G-A!!!

    If anybody has any ideas let me know. I kinda like the idea of the touchwheel so I'm going to work on that after I get the EQ screen working.

    sure thing, they're on the way. Remember, I've only been using PS for a week so I'm sure I'm doing things the hard way.

    I also got the horizontal eq bars to work. Well, at least the balance works. I figured that would be the easiest to test. I finish the eq screen tomorrow.

    EQ presets

    Good call on the eq presets. I completely forgot about them while I was working it. I'll probably move the lower horizontal bars up and then put the presets in the bottom. I also need to work on the acutally slider. That shouldn't take long though. I think the harder screens are coming up, navi, phone, video player. Thanks on the ideas!

    Thanks for the psd's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i looked at the psd's and they look good....good job for a beginner. Let me make another suggerstion on the presets...... when i skin i like to try and keep all skins as similar in layout as possible so what i would do is keep the layout the same and replace the text on the right side, since you really dont need these buttons in the mixer skin. Then make the exit button in the mixer skin take you back to the audio skin....just a suggestion
