WinForms Skin Coloring - Photoshop Automation Script Available

WinForms Team Blog
04 November 2008

Corey Meredith, a very cool customer, has created and made available a Photoshop Automation Script to make skinning even easier for you. The Photoshop script automates the process of modifying the colors of a stock Developer Express Skin (iMaginary). You can find detailed steps, screenshots, and download the files from this link: 


Corey explains how the script was created:

I was tasked with the creation of a skin to match a company's brand colors.  I'm sure many of you have had a similar assignment.  I decided to use the stock iMaginary skin and modify the colors.  I thought this skin in particular handled coloring very well.  I hated to see all of that effort put into creating selection channels on the images wasted on a single project.  As I spent one evening after another encircling pixels, I decided to create a script that automates Photoshop and reuses the images.  This, of course, turned into a significant project of its own, but I'm pretty sure it will prove valuable to some of you out there.  I sure hope so.

For your skinning convenience: DXeasySkin (follow link for screenshots and download)

Requires a licensed or trial version of Photoshop CS3 or CS4 on Windows or a Mac (not yet tested on Mac).

Let me know if you run into problems.  Feedback is welcome.
