Gray Classic (Windows 7 style)



This skin was made of snap shots from the tiny Pixelformer program.
(The one that lets one see alpha channel easily).
The skin has been lying around 3/4 done in the to do folder for a long time.
I like it. I don't think it's going to have mass appeal,
unless one is a loyal Pixelformer fan, as it's only old school light gray.
It only has small icon option, nothing else.
Was going to delete it, then a spark happened.

Now, as of this weekend.
So what I did, was make everything twice as dark from original.
Looks newer now, in the dark variation.
In Win 10 personalize settings, I picked the top right gray color swatch box,
with taskbar transparency turned off.
That way, all the shades of gray, keep it interesting, well at least in my eyes. :)
I put user picture and name options back in. There isn't any glass color, or transparency blur.
New program button is the old inverted type.





Just 5 more unfinished skins in the to do folder.
Going to take a year to get back to them. Need time and more sparks to happen.

Thanks guys.

If I had more time, I would have worked more on the new buttons.
Perhaps given them more 3d depth, like the power button,
or painted the middle part purple, like its parent.

This is awesome! I love it! Matches my setup perfectly when using the dark version. :D
