Hey, now Ive pretty much got to grips with the building and coding side of a skin so Im gonna take a look at the graphics side.
A couple of questions for ya,
What is the best size to start with? Say a 1024x768 PS sheet?
What is the total xy area of the xbmc screen and when positioning things from which relative point is it taken from, bottom left? Ive been doing it by eye at the mo and cant seem to see which it is.
What sort of graphical limitations has xbmc got, like ie will only accept 32bit colors, 24bit bmps etc etc
Ive checked the skin.txt but it wasnt much help
Let us know of any other tips you may have
Think Im gonna have a crack at a skin in me spare time
