The Possibilities for Skin Creation

You have seen from Chapter 6, “A Closer Look at Skinning Software,” that a large number of premade themes, visual styles, and skins are available for download from the Web. Some of the visual styles and skins are more creative than others, but in most cases, the one thing that all these visual styles and skins share in common is that the creator took a lot of time and effort to create them.

Creating your own themes, visual styles, and skins does require effort and time. When you think about all the elements and objects that make up the Windows interface, a complete makeover in the form of a skin is certainly labor intensive. The energy that you expend to create your own visual styles and skins will depend in large part on your artistic abilities and command of various software packages, such as graphic creation software (Photoshop, for instance), and skin editors.
