Paul's color scheme

Post by Paul Fierlinger » 07 Dec 2011, 13:54

Here's my personalized color scheme, if anyone wants to give it a try. I have Border clicked on, Highlight set to zero, Mirror clicked off, Magnet on, No border not checked.

I created what I consider a few improvements such as giving the current timeline a clearl yellow background. I also toned down the black to a dark gray in many places.

(I have split the previous topic and put your color scheme in the content sharing. Who knows, it could be useful for other users later :D )

Paul's GUI-Design is much calming and feels comfortable, I think it should be implemented in the software as an option of interface style.
(If Paul allows, :roll: )

Well I'm glad to be of use, especially if you like it, Sven :) I thought it takes someone like you to get it done in two minutes. BTW, this is a joint effort between what Sandra first started and I then tweaked.

The mechanics of setting UI colors is archaic at best - not designed for speed. Even figuring out which element goes with which color is a challenge. But the real ar&t is in the way the colors combine - it all works together so well in your design and best of all, nicely resolves the missing icon background problem.

Thanks again.

An idea for a future improvement (nothing urgent): completely different implementation. Have one dark GUI (with white text) and one light GUI (with dark text). Have a slider for each to change brightness to personal taste, implemented in a way that relative contrasts are maintained. Maybe have another slider for tinting the GUI (should be a neutral gray by default).

I wonder if that works. Should do a mockup in Flash for this if I have too much free time ...

combustion has (or is it had now) exactly this way, where you can use sliders to set the colorscheme.

Shouldn't this thread be merged into the "share you interface look" thread?

Only if more people would share their color schemes... actually, inside of that thread someone asks if what's there shouldn't go somewhere else. :|

That question you mention was asked in that thread BEFORE it was moved to the Contents Sharing forum.
One thread to gather all TVP themes - makes sense, no? Why scatter them around?
We can just ask Elodie to make that thread a sticky, so it is always accessible at the top of the Contents Sharing forum.
