I do not want round user picture - it's just censorship.

I do not want transparency.

I do want bigger user picture and additional changes that will made it look in line with the rest of the skin.

And sorry to write it, but I think I've already did what you wrote before. See comparison of Bitmap6 made by me, and by you. https://i.imgur.com/Jil5m3U.png

Just a quick comment before I get some shut eye.
Ah, that's the older first skin, not the rev B with the girl.

I downloaded your skin mod.
The bitmap 6 needs to be 32 bit bitmap, instead of 24 bit, for the smooth invisible top corners of menu.

The user bitmap is only 8 bit. I'm surprised it shows picture.
Usually it is 32 bit with invisible square in middle, and the outside part becomes the frame.
Do you want it to have a frame?

Tom I will fix it, adjust the top padding down a little, and the skinny frame back in.
Time to slumber.

Hi mayka, I'm back. I fixed the middle variation that has flatter bottom and taller top.

I have three questions.
Did you want just that option with taller top, or all three variations?
What I see you did was put flatter bottom bitmap for variation 1 and 3, so they both look the same.
I can put the original short top bitmaps back in those places, or make those taller tops as well?
Or just upload what I fixed at this point, and let you take over?

Ok, leave it to you.
In order to have the high top and different size user frame, I had to put that info in the variation 2, so it overrides variation 1

Bye :)

XP Blue 200% size [classic 1/2 style]

This is a test XP skin specifically for a 4k display monitor.

Problem is, I don't have a 4k monitor to see if it actually works correctly! :lol:
I surmise if 1920 x 1080 100%/96DPI is normal HD,
then double those figures 3,840 x 2,160 200%/192 would be 4k territory.

So what I did was enlarge every image twice as much (example-one pixel line becomes a two-pixel thick line).
So I think 200% size should be correct for 4k.

I tried this skin on my 1920 x 1080 100%/96DPI monitor with the override settings in Classic/Open Shell
set to 192DPI with small icons set to 32 and large icons set to 64.
Of course, the menu ran out of display room and chopped out items on the second column.
It might work as long as the 4k monitor runs at 192DPI.

I started out making a 400% size menu as well(for professional 4k)
but gave up on that because the user picture can't go any larger than 128 x 128 pixels size,
and the maximum image size for the magnifier at the search box is only 20 x 20 pixels. Way too small!

About the menu.
Blue color only.
There are no smaller size menu images. ONLY for 200%/192dpi size.
I did put an option to have the large blue bottom bar,
but no option for fake logoff/shutdown icons and text.
There is an option for the search box on the bottom bar though.

Well, that's about as far I want to take it, as it could be all for nothing.
Anyone is welcome to alter it to be better. :)

EDIT:
Made a few minor changes to be a little closer to XP looks:
Thicker invisible separator paddings
Smaller user name
User picture positioned more left
Darkened user picture shadow
Correct lighter blue text color on 2nd column
Option for old magnifier for search box (not enough room for its shadow. It's maxed 20x20 and still looks small)
I left the main menu paddings the same (not accurate). If someone requests original paddings x2, I will change and call skin revision B
and update the display pictures.
