Gilden by essorant Gilden by essorant
It's intentionally very bright - almost completely white in places. You have the option of standard or compact start menus, and although is doesn't have custom colour compatability, it works fine if you use the 'force' option as shown in the snapshot.

Included in the skin are progress animations and toolbar icons, and, for a change, my own shell icons, and you will find a zip file containing the wallpaper at several resolutions (JPGs) inside the '..\WindowBlinds\Gilden' folder once you have installed the skin. (The icons are iCandy Junior Yellow.)

---

Unfortunately, I don't see any images on the DA website now, which is a bit of a handicap for this kind of site! This is probably some proxy server problem at my end, and it isn't something I have control over. So it might be one of my last submissions here. I'm very sorry... :( I'll not be removing anything, so feel free to keep commenting.

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-09-20
Looking for a simple WindowBlinds skin to spice up that desktop then grab Gilden by `essorant. The bright yellow tones make this an extremely desirable skin for us aliens, and non-aliens, alike! ( Featured by jark )

You need to have WindowBlinds running on your PC Steve - which you can download from [link] - it's well worth it!

I will leave my +friend option on this account because of your style and the high quality of your productions which was the first reason to jump into DA community.

I think you are one of the best skinner I had ever know on the Internet, feel free to go whereever you want, but don't leave us without your beautifull skins. (and i'll still find you on wincusto, i think)

see you,
~flx2000

Woah!

Daily Deviation? I am not deserving.

(reading that back, it sounds a bit like Yoda...) Thank you everyone. For all those who don't know how to apply it, you need WindowBlinds from Stardock. It's very cool and you should buy it! [link]

You could download it just for the wallpaper if you like (the .wba file is just a renamed zip file - open it with winzip and you will find another zip file inside with the four wallpapers in).

Wonderful skin, perfect for rainy days. I agree with biophoten, this should be a standard theme for windows.

The blue and silver trying to look good really got to me.

Thanks and keep it up!!!

Looks good, but the bars on the sides of the windows need to be smaller (nobody likes a theme that shrinks their programs' viewing size :P)

oh wie lecker!

your skin looks very plastique, very happy, very optimistic - to paraphrase the words of the one and only "original" catwoman michelle pfeiffer: "it looks so much more .. yummier" :lol:

i wish your work was the standard theme for winbloze xp!
instead of that misproportionate crap with buttons the size of real life coins .. ugh

one day when i will have a working computer i'll be downloading this like there's no tomorrow!
for now i give this deviation seven out of six stars for the graphics and functionality so beautifully merged into a working unit:

Thank you MrFatJ and Atilla - kind words. I will continue to post, but probably not update quite as much <sniff> .

We have spoken about the images problem before Jark. I really don't think it's anything at your end, but at my corporate firewall which seems to let all the text through and none of the piccies. Kinda takes the edge of browsing!

But I still love you...

Beautiful skin Tim. Love the simplicity you have going here.

Not sure about the problems; might have hit the site when there was a thumb server issue but other than that I see all imagery that you appear to have uploaded. Holler at me if there is something I can do to help!

It sadens me to read that you might not be posting here anymore.. I've told you before i think you an extremley talented skinner. Glad to see you made some toolbar icons.. And you know what else i think is really sad. That a good 40 poeple have dl'ed this, and no one has commented, or thanked you for both your time AND effort. Poeple dont appreciate free stuff anymore, but complain when they have to pay for something.. Well anyway, thanks a lot. Im sure i will enjoy this skin as i have others. Peace be with you

Essorant, all around effort on this skin. I first picked it up on WinCusto yestarday, but I'm glad you put it up here. Sorry to hear about your problems accessing the site, and if you do decide to discontinue future submissions, you'll be greatly missed. I hope any technical problem you're having can be worked out so losing your refreshing submissions won't have to be.

So anyway, I don't generally use yellow themes, so I changed the color in WB4.4 to A pastel blue of sorts, which went well with my previous desktops cheme, bootskin, logon, etc.. :D
