I need theme opinions, please! - FirefoxWiz - Mar 03, 2007

On GFX Express (http://graphics.8ez.com/) how does the green and blue theme look? Is it too bright / just plain ugly? I think it looks kinda cool, but I wanted some others' opinions first. Smile

Thanks,
FW

You have 4 colors inside your on_off image and yet you only use 2 of those in the theme. I would ditch some of that grey and outer blue. Work with a color palette. Fixate on a simple image and work around it. That's a nice on_off image and I believe you can create a whole theme based on it's colors.

Your offlock image imho looks terrible. You may want to try the off.gif as the offlock.gif and try to make the on.gif animated. It's not that hard and if you want help let me know. It's very simple to have an animated gif fade in and out as an on.gif that fits into most themes.

Then should I try to make a theme using all 4 of those colors? Smile I'll try that and see how it works out.. but I'm confused on where to use the rest of the 2 colors. Tongue

Could you help me make a faded on/off image? When I try it, it puts it to .gif quality which REALLy looks bad. Maybe you could try and do better?

Replace your body background for one. Use white instead of grey on both alternating tables. You can use one of the colors as TABLE background and/or border.

The red I would try as the hover color..

The yellow I would try as body background. If it's obnoxious the make the page width more than 95% (default).

The blue you already have used.

The green you can try in the TABLE.

Does the green look OK in the table sub header?

In my opinion the green, blue and yellow together is a bit intense..Perhaps you need a more calming colour thrown in there somewhere? But other than that i like it..just needs a bit of tweaking and a bit of tweaking can go along wayWink

It looks interesting at best, but the colours do look a bit sickly.

That looks good on my pc. Is the offtopic forum supposed to just be a category?
