The new icon doesn't show up well on an orange theme:

Personally, I don't really give a crap about the icon. I never even notice the icon in the titlebar or taskbar, and when I make a shortcut to any prog, I can set any icon I want for it.

the deluxe icons rules! it has the same "eye" and looks very modern.
the deluxe toolbar rules too, it's way better the the actual xnview default one.

but still, my favourite toolbar is the gorilla one... and by the way, what happened with it?

As far as I can tell everybody agrees that the Mezich skin kicks some serious butt. Maybe we could set up a PayPal tip jar to raise some $$ so Pierre can either hire them or use it as prize money for a WinRAR Theme Contest kind of thing.

And while we're at it: I'd suggest to replace the default skin with it or at least put it on the official screenshots (assuming there are no license or copyright issues involved).
I rest my case. ;-)

yeah the mezich is the best skin.
still i'd not mind (at all) if pierre decided to make the deluxe icon and tollbar the default ones on an upcoming xnview release.

I hate the icon for XnView. It's ugly and plain (orange/red/white).
I love the icon for XnView Deluxe. It's much more colorful and pleasing to the eye (gold/red/white/blue/green) .
I hate the default toolbar in both XnView and XnView Deluxe.
I hate the Mesick toolbar (skin). Sorry, guys. I don't think it is the best, and I disagree that it would win in a poll. Toolbar 4 might win.

I really love Toolbar 4 (Dominique Clément). That's my favorite. I use it for both XnView and XnView Deluxe.

PLEASE DON'T DISCONTINUE THIS TOOLBAR!

If anything, maybe it can be updated to work better with the final version of XnView Deluxe and for future versions of XnView.

I vote for the Deluxe icon and Toolbar 4!

(I'm very low income, but I'll donate $5 if you use this icon and keep this toolbar. Just give me an email address, and I'll send a PayPal payment.)

It's not up to Pierrre to update it.
Dominique Clément needs to update it or at least give someone else permission to update it.

I'm sorry.

*Points out that the xnview deluxe in that screenshot just has a white circle for an icon. Real big improvement over the orange eyeball. ;) *

Someone else could make their own skin similar to the clements one.

That white circle icon is probably part of a theme that goes with the toolbar. Support for themes isn't really needed in XnView, different toolbars is enough in my opinion.

My point was that that exact same post also said
I hate the icon for XnView. It's ugly and plain (orange/red/white).
I love the icon for XnView Deluxe. It's much more colorful and pleasing to the eye (gold/red/white/blue/green) .
..then turned around and posted a screen of deluxe with a white circle icon. I don't know about you, but I sure wouldn't call a white circle "more colorful" than anything. Additionally, I wouldn't be complaining that the icon for normal xnview is ugly and plain when she's happily using a white circle icon in deluxe. That's like saying "This 17", color tv is not pleasing to watch because it's small and not HD, so I'm going to watch this wonderful 12" black&white set (which also isn't HD) instead!"
