Make Your Own Winamp Skin...

After looking on google for some tuts on it, I didn't find any that were useful for winamp 5.x and higher, so I decided to just try going in blindly. Here's what I came up with lol.

I'll be going for a Skyline look

1.) Open your Winamp folder (Usually C:\Program Files\Winamp.
-In that folder, search for all *.png images and copy them to a new folder somewhere.
-Open the following images in Photoshop
(Or at least, those are the ones that I did lol)
>background.png
>bg_overlay.png
>button_ct_switch.png
>button_mute.png
>button_mut_bg.png
>button_repeat2.png
>button_shufflerepeat.png
>buttons2.png
>buttons_bg.png
>buttons_detach.png
>buttons_eq.png
>buttons_mlpl.png
>buttons_mlpl_bg.png
>buttons_pl.png
>buttons_switchto.png
>buttons_video.png
>buttons_vis.png
>config_tabs.png
>ct_background.png
>ct_bg.png
>drawer_bg.png
>eq_balance.png
>eq_bg.png
>main.png
>main2.png
>menu.png
>menubar.png
>pe_time.png
>pl_shade.png
>player_buttons.png
>plwindow.png
>seekbar-buttons.png
>shade_bg.png
>shufflerepeat_bg.png
>titlebar.png
>videoavs_button_bg.png
>video_avs_button_bg2.png
>videoavs_buttonup_bg.png
>volume.png
>volume_bar_bg.png

2.) Change everything around...for example, here's what I did to "main.png"


I think to move the buttons and writing around you need an XML editor (Such as Macromedia Dreamweaver) and to know how to edit them.

And my final result:

Needs some work, but I'll have to keep it (I accidentally replaced the original files lol).

yea it does need some touch ups, but for a first try maybe? Not bad, also your desktop is very cluttered....

Yeah, I try to clear it up because most of the stuff I don't use, but then I think...if I need it tomorrow, It'll take me forever to find lol.

BTW I'm working on another way to make a skin. Not sure if it will work though lol.

I found an easier way. Take another skin (I used Beerfest). Change the extention from *.wal to *.zip and extract. Go through each extracted folder, changing the pictures to whatever you want. Then, I looked through the *.xml's for files that had the names of the pictures in them and changed the X and Y coordinates to the locations that I wanted them. It's a bit unoranized and not matching, but I'll make it a project for the next couple of days lol.

Haven't touched PS in months since I got the car. Got home tonight and had these images I had taken in the rain. Long story short I was messing around with HDR photos. Here is the result:
