Looking for someone with 3 things.

1) A newly clean/painted RC (anything).
2) A computer and the means to get a photo of that RC onto it, for editing.
3) The idea of seeing that RC skinned onto a CD player.

I'm looking for pre-designed skins to add to the installation of a new CD player program (yeah, yeah, it's not for the Mac, PC only, Win 9x and up). But, what's different between this one and the rest? Hmmm. Lets see:

Skinnable interface: Can be anything from a tennis ball to blobs all over the place (doesn't necessarily have to be a solid object).
Scalable Skins: Can be told to "Fit" to screen size (not a good idea unless you LOVE the skin), "Shrink" to fit onto smaller screen sizes (so you can have large skins), or oddball the thing by stretching the window dimensions.

Each button (Play, Pause, Stop, Eject, Previous Track, Next Track, Quit, Volume Slider, Drive Change) can have 3 different skins for each mode (mouse over, normal and down). Each skin can be transparency masked (so you can make a small button go bigger [conditions apply], etc).

Skinning is quite easy, if you can use a paint program that can save the following formats: GIF, JPG (difficulty with transparency masking due to artifacted type), WMF, BMP, think TIF and Targa work, but those get massive fast.

A mask area is PURPLE. So what do you get if you make a skin? (Well, nothing actually, except when the CD player is released, you'll be notified by that and you can actually see your skin work.)

And side note: Drive Change, lets you swap between more than one CD ROM.

PM me about this if you want more info, or reply here to ask Q's about the player in general.
