BTW ckit, do you ask to Everaldo to put his icons in MSN? I don't have any trouble to give some of my work to you, but Everaldo always ask for a letter first.
If it's posted on a public forum, it's mine to do with as I please.

:) Hello !

• I confirm, same here !
- I can't unpack that archive, neither in Total Commander (shows an empty content),
nor in WinRar (free registered 3.51 version), I get an error message.
- I tried "avancia" too, same mess…

So, could please somebody PM us a working copy of the skin, maybe in ZIP format and without password?

Sorry I don't use WinZip, or Internet Explorer. Try here with Mozilla Firefox:

Not avancia or aviancia. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Thanks, but the point is that your RAR either gets corrupted when downloaded or can be opened just by the latest RAR version. A simple, standard zip made by whatever (all archive utilities can create standard zips, under any platform) should do the trick and allow 100% of users to use it, while RAR does not. I don't see why it's not possible to rearchive it with your utility using the ZIP format instead of the RAR and PM it to me and Clo if you don't want to post a ZIP in a forum. You definitely don't need WinZip nor IE to do that...

OK, I passed the RAR to another machine with another RAR unarchiver and I succeeded in extracting it: the problem lies not in IE but in the RAR format/version you're using.

Clo, je vais t'envoyer le fichier par PM tout de suite. :wink:

:) Hello !

• I got it alright, thank you !

• However, that skin is not updated to test in 1.90 Alpha3 :

1. The browser tool-bar has nine icons only, the “Previous¦Next” directory ones are missing.
2. In «info.txt», we have
version = 2
while we need now
version = 3
to display these supplemental icons of the browser tool-bar when it's updated, of course…

• Aside : Indeed, extra-icons as *.ICO in the same design are needed too for the new buttons we can add now…
- Pierre has improved the tool-bar features for this in Alpha 3, although it is't quite OK yet :|

:mrgreen: Kind regards, Cordialement,

The screenshots of the Mezich skin for XnView 1.90 look really good. Regardless which toolbar will be the default toolbar in XnView 1.90 I think that the current skin of XnView 1.82 should be continued.

From my point of view it should be either the current skin or the Mezich skin, but Crystal skin looks nice, but is not as professional as Mezich and 1.82 default skin, yet.

By all means, taste differs but the default skin is childlike with a bulky design
and shockingly bright color choices. I never complained before but that's only because
I have so many other choices of skins.

By far Mezich's skins is the best. Not only comparing to other sets in offer but
also as a stand alone one. It is artistically appealing with a modern/vivid
look that can never be criticized as extreme. Color selections are perfect being
neither dull nor tiresome. Themewise it follows the perfect ratio between
simplicity and completeness so every icon is easily self explained on what it
represents and the action it encapsulates.
I hate so much the fact that I adore women!
