    The beta some of us have is "manual" (copying files to a specific directory we created), the Release version will be very simple and built into the Widget/app. Once the app is released there will be instructions of how to apply the skins, but it is my understanding you will be able to select from pre-made skins and also import your own or other's custom skins. Should be pretty much like all other skinnable widget/apps.
    i didnt realize there was a beta, i was thinking "there must be a manual way they are doing this" i just didnt realize you had a special version of bw

And post a screen shot or something lol. I didn't include any smaller-home-back files cause it didn't have it in the skin pack, so I didn't know lol. here's the zip file. hope it looks ok can't really tell without the beta. Oh I took the numbers from your naked skin since I had no idea where else to get them, hope you don't mind.
    I figured out what happened with your skin file.

    You forgot to rename the new files correctly. When you create the new image files they must be named exactly as they are in the "example" directory of the SkiDevKit.

    You used the names of the PSD files and named the new PNGs "back.png" instead of "background.png" etc.

    This should be more of what you had in mind, I like it!!!



    haha that looks cool lol! Ok I see what happened, I'll definitely make sure to fix that with the fixed up version. I'll redo the skin and make it more consistant. I quickly did this as a mock-up just to see if it looked ok, I'll definitely clean it up!

    Are we allowed to change the font placement? Or is that not supported yet? How do we do it?

    No. That was the Smaller Home Landscape version, it leaves a lot of empty space in the middle for "fun stuff". I just pasted the Droid logo on top of the background image and saved it.

    Yeah, you should render it flat and/or reduce quality, a 12meg clock skin just might slow things down a little on a phone :-)

    Also makes sure the size are the same as the samples.

    BTW, it looks VERY nice, can't wait to see it on the phone.
    Agreed looks really cool!

    BTW I just sent you a pm with the updated files, hope it looks better now. Also the final update will let us use our own skins right? We're not restrained with skins available natively to the BW?

    Got PM, sent reply.

    Yes we will be able to use our own skins, this is a big part of the reason for this thread, for us to share them with each other.

    When you get one that is finished and ready for sharing. please go back thru your previous posts and update and/or delete the previous uploads or posts so we don't confuse people with different "unfinished" skins.

    The Goal is basically to make this thread the "repository" for BW skins/tips/tricks. According to Mods there will be a separate "disussion" thread started for the new BW Skiinable widget/app. We want to try to keep this one "clean" for future users to come and find BW skins and related info without having to sort thru page after page of "unrelated stuff".

    Hope that makes sense,
