skinfu is a simple commandline
XMMS© skin-creation tool using the
Simple Directmedia Layer. It
performs transparency processing so artists don't have to waste their time
drawing the same bloody stuff over and over again for the the
background, the buttons, minimize/maximize areas, etc etc etc.
It reads in the XMMS© skin images from inputdir, processes transparency, then writes the modified images out to outputdir. ( Specifying the same input and output directories is a Bad Idea. ) It considers pixels of the color #ff00ff to be transparent, and replaces these with the relevant "background". Not all areas are processed, of course. If you come across an area that isn't processed but should be, let me know. Commandline syntax is
skinfu inputdir outputdir
For a visual example of skinfu's operation, here's a
before and after
picture. You can see quite clearly the areas where skinfu's filled in
in the background for you. The skin I developed, BlueSkew, is
downloadable in before and after forms.
