    Resources for graphics -- skinning etc

    Question for all you guys that skin apps etc. I've rewritten my app (with Destinator support) to be skinnable (it didn't used to be), but the graphics I've used at the moment are just placeholders. I'm no artist so are there any good resources on the net for nabbing graphics etc off to use?

    Talking mainly things like buttons, but any advice on best software etc to use for drawing panels and funky background effects etc will be appreciated.

    Basically want it to look better than this:




    Shouldn't be too difficult then!

    Looks like you got destinator to work in your own window... How'd you do that? I've been looking for a way.

    Man that's some sweet looking stuff!

    I've kinda got a half-decent looking skin going though - I've discovered how much better softening can make things look

    Software is still partway there (currently making the scrollbars etc skinnable). When it's all done and dusted a more artistic hand would be appreciated.

    I'll give you a shout if I can, cheers,
