multiple gadget skins

Postby p0rt1r » Thu May 19, 2011 11:25 pm

When I first ran the coretemp gadget I immediately hated the skin. Its just too blue for my liking. I wanted to change that so I found the background png and had abit of a play around with it. The result is below. The point is, people dont have to use the blue theme, nor do they have to like the theme. So why not give people a choice?

Use this version. Coretemp dev's can use this however they want. (remove the number 4 obviously :P)

Good idea. I'll look if it can add more skins or have other contribute their own skins.
Where did you find this image? I'd like to use it in future version of the gadget, but I want to make sure that no copyrights are violated.

Now that I look at it, I see where it came from originally. I'll see if I can use it in my gadget, but I welcome any really new and custom backgrounds. That would be very nice.

Ive just remade the carbon fibre base so nobody can get angry for using it. It looks nearly identical but it is different. The psd is available if you want it. And yes it is a modified version of the original blue one.

Oh, if it came from the Core Temp Gadget, then it's fine.
Do I have your permission to use and distribute it in the next versions of the Core Temp Gadgets?

Since I didn't get a response, I think "Carbon Fiber" is a good name for this bg.
Thanks.
