Hello everyone, I'm a noob at making icon (and uploading them) so i need some help.

I made by icon. It was an apple logo. i made two types of it. One in the .ico format and the other in the .png format. I also put a jpeg image of it. All three of those were in a .zip file. i uploaded it into the misc. icons section and waited about a day for it to show up on Wincustomize. it didn't show up. instead i got an email message from Fussy Logic saying that the icon wasn't uploaded because of the fol...

Does Microsoft actually like it when people customize and make their own skins for people to buy or download?If they did, wouldn't they mention it on their site or something. There are many people who do not like the original windows XP taskbar, icons, log-on, etc... and they don't know how to change them or customize them. I was lucky to find out how thanks to the wincustomize ad i saw.Many of my friends have told me how to change the way windows XP looked and when i told them to go to this sit...

its been a VERY long time since i made a bootskin.

Now i made a bootskin and it is ready to be sent to this site with the exception of one problem.

i used photoshop to convert my image to a 16-bit image but i cant save it as a .BMP file.

If i can't do that then the bootskin software won't regonize the skin i made. And the image has to be a .bmp anyway.

How can i make my image into a 16-bit .bmp image file?

tell me if you guys use a certain type of software for that...................

I have a computer that i bought since 2002. it's a pentium 4 (1.6ghz) 512 MB and a 80GB hard drive. it still works fine but if i customize my copmuter with windowblind skins, log-ons, or icons, it will slow down very quickly. that's why if you go to my page and look at my destop, you won't see anything customzable there. so i am looking for a computer.

I see a lot of good computers with AMD prosessors at a low price but i also see Intel prosessor computers but with a more expensive price. why...

I think that as years go by, wincustomize should make skins for other things like cell phones.

i think that because there are many new things that can be skinned besides windows. There can be skins for cell phones, msn messenger, yahoo messenger, etc.

probably (if stardock can make a program) even ipods.

my point here is that many people have moved on in life except wincustomize. There really should be a section for other customizable things.

i'm sorry everybody. i made bootskins that i thought was right but when Carvan1 told me what was wrong, i was so disappointed. i'm upgrading all my skin hopfully when Carvan1 replies to my email that i gave him. (still waiting) anyway. even if Carvan1 tells me what skins are not working, i want you guys to tell me what skins are not working.

it's been i think three years since Wincustomize changed its website look so should it change it's look now? Well to me ... i think they should wait till Microsoft releases Longhorn cause longhorn will be different than windows. and there will be new styles.

So should it have a new make-over? please place comments on what you think.

To me personaly, i think that commenting on people's skins is like helping them make better skins in the future because the person would read his comments and either think that he needs to make a better skin or just be proud of himself and move on. i was proud of myself when i moved from a citizen to an apprentice. So should people comment on skin? the answer is yes because it helps them think about how they made their skins and what can they do better to make a better skin. i always browse aro...

Is it fair to make too many bootskins a day? If you go to the bootskin gallery you will see at least two users submitting at least more than two skins a day and at least more than three or four skins a page. Is this fair? Well to some people the answer would be yes because they can't make skins so often and some users only look at the first page of the gallery. (Correct me if i'm wrong). And if users make more than two skins a day or have more than three skins a page, the other users skins will...
