SHADED by heylove SHADED by heylove
Well it's been about 4 months since I last submitted a theme. I guess you could say I kinda had a writers block but for theming. I'm better now though! Everything you see in the preview is in the download. I can't stress enough how important it is to read the read me files. If you read them you shouldn't have any question regarding the fonts! I know this doesn't really look like the Nano suite, but my inspiration for making this came from Nano. I thought you should know that ;) Enjoy

Your beautiful theme does not work for me becaus i have Vista. :-(
Is it possible to use it if you don't have xp?
kittenbella Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2008
I just finished commenting that your Pixel Elegance is by far one of my favorite V.S's- and Shaded is also up there. im always drawn more to minimal styles, & you have the ability to create perfect little pixel confections. Im totally a "hey love" fan.

I really love this theme very much. It's nice on your eyes and also, the colours and fonts are great.

Good work.
randomkitten Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2007
Wonderful theme, I love it! It works fine for me but, I can't seem to get my computer to change the icons. They just won't. Should I put them in the c:/windows/resources/icons folder? Right now I have them at blah/resources/themes/shadedblue/
Is that right?
mbcudmore Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2007
I really do love it. I realize more and more every day how much of a minimalist I actually am. And you know what? It's not a bad thing. It's not unartistic. It's just me (and whoever else calls themselves a minimalist, haha). :+fav: even though I don't use Windows. Linux copy?

Chuchkit Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2006
I really love it, but the only thing i managed to do is activate the winamp.
I have no idea how to install the shell.
Do you need some programm for that?
I couldn't find on the web.
Help, pleeease.
Chuchkit Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2007
i installed it with "Style XP"
But the icons just won't work, won't change.
What can i do to change it?
Trillianero Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2006
i tried to copy the fonts inbto my c:\windows\fonts folder, but it did not let me do it. it said, that the fonts can't be installed, because they are either invalid or corrupt.
what should i do?
i really WANT this visual style, i love it without even having installed it....[link]
Daiko-n Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2006
-I'm faving this and want to use it soon (probably in the near future) but I wonder if it's possible for this to work with the way that I've already customized my displayed fonts for viewing things (your fonts are nice, but I like my italicized Palatino Linotype and would rather keep it than not.)

I'm new to using skins (outside of on a browser) so I've got a lot to learn...

Thank you for sharing.

It's not often that a theme will last two years and still be a classic... is it for WB?
leobitencourt Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2006
I just loved it man ! Congratulations...fav !!

chasethemagic Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2006
this is the theme ive been looking for all my life. i wish i had the power to make my own, so i could do a little changes but... wow.
captivator Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2006  Student Interface Designer
Fantastic theme! I've been using it straight for almost a couple years. It's just amazing.

I have my icons set to 72 pixels, and therefore the icons to the right in the start menu are smushed because of insufficient space. I was curious to know if there's a possible fix for this? I would love to see my icons un-smush-i-fied!
aeternitas Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2006
Im downloading this becuase

1. Its subtile colors.
2. You have brena in the playlist. (among other apc)
Anarchtic Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2006
Very nice I wish you added a color that was more bold/darker/masculan but im not complaining its simply amazing thx
eliafin Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2006
this theme looks stunning and exactly what I was looking for! but i can't for the life of me get it to work :S I read the note in the winamp folder but I don't actually want the winamp skin, just the theme
tafkase7en Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2006
One of the best themes I've seen, great job!

i think i might have written a comment here before but i thought i would give a follow up. ive been using this skin straight through almost 1.5 years now. its completely functional and looks great as well. totally hooked. thanks for this awesome skin.
x40BelowFreakx Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2006
Amazing skin; I'm a big fan of the subtle colors and the crisp feeling you get when using it. Having trouble finding a matching wallpaper though :doh:
jcfb Featured By Owner May 24, 2006
it's the best skin i've ever tried!
Truckmonkey Featured By Owner May 21, 2006
It took me awhile to figure out what I needed to do to use this skin, but I managed and I'm loving it. The only problem is that I can't get the icons to work. Whenever I try to add the set, it says something about the system path not being found. Is this a problem with the files or my computer? Do I need to move the file somewhere?

__Wonderful and minimal just how I love it....but I cant use it :sniff: I have windowblinds and no experience on this Visual Styles :crying:
heylove Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2006
I'm sorry.
breakerr Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
___Hey Love :p thanks for the reply and I have one simple question for you............can I use WINDOWBLINDS and TGT aka Visual styles skins at the same time without any troubles in between ???? Thanks in advance.
heylove Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2006
I'm not sure. I don't use Windowblinds. Sorry.
breakerr Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
__Thanks...Im already running your AESTHETIC GROOVE and combined all to make a theme of it ;) I decided to use windowblinds whenever I need to and Visual Styles too. I just try to avoid using them at the same time or install a skin on top of the other one ;) cheers :beer: keep up the work :thumbsup: :beer:
