Dark Room Theme

Post by Yado » Wed Feb 20, 2008 4:43 pm

Hello,
I wish me a dark room theme. So thats the GUI in Dark is with the Toolbars and so on, see also topic Surfaces Change Color. This is better to edit pictures and to consider.

Please post here if you find this enhancement also useful.

No themed gui for XnView please. If someone wants a different look, he could use visual styles on XP or Vista.

On one hand I understand and like the idea of a DarkRoom skin. On the other hand, I don't like themed applications at all (e.g. XnView DeLuxe). Difficult to say what to do...

Well, as a big LightRoom fan, I am certainly in favor of "color" skinning all parts of the XnView interface. I'd make XnView look almost exactly like LightRoom if I could.

On the other hand, I am not at all in favor if the only method to accomplish this is to use "bitmap" skinning. With only a few exceptions, bitmap skins don't scale properly for all display settings and frequently disable the interface because of misplacement of controls.
