My Object Desktop subscription expired in July 2011, at that time Impulse was used to install all the programs.

Also there was an option of downloading and archiving the software in Impulse as a .Impulse file,

now when i try to install the archived files through Impulse(GameStop), it does'nt install the programs.

Recently i read this post about downloading your programs through the Stardock Store, but over there i

don't see any of the Object Desktop programs.

I know that o...

Hello everyone,

I have a set of icons in .PNG and .ICO format which I want to use as an IconPackage, (for personal use)

how do I pack them all as an IconPackage theme ??

Also, if im using a certain IconPackage theme, can I include icons for certain applications which by default may not be

there in the package, for eg. an icon for my paintshop or after effects ??

It would be really helpful, thnx in advance !!

I don't know if any of you thought where I have been since the past few days......but all I can tell you is that I have undergone the worst time of my life during these days as my Mom died recently at an early age of 58. 

She was everything to me, I indeed know that I can't live without her, I mean it's almost impossible for me to believe that she is no more there with me !!

Can't write more .....

Hello everyone,

Today I just saw that I crossed a 100,000 dream downloads !!

I feel really glad, also because when I joined Wincustomize, I just created dreams

and so it was the very first gallery where I shared my work and since that time it has

been like my home here on Wincustomize.

I wanna thank each and everyone who download and appreciate my dreams and the

whole WC community for the great support !!

Special thanks to

Sir WOM for moderating my dreams,

Ausvet fo...

Im really very happy to let you all know that I've created more than 50 .Dreams by now since Feb 18th, 2009 which shows up as the date for my first dream submission at the gallery. And I got a very quick promotion to Apprentice in March,2009. It was a great moment for me and since then I've created all kinds of dreams ( triggered, HD, nature, abstracts) except for the dynamic ones.

Firstly, I thank the mods for helping me to develop my skills coz the truth is if any of my skin would not be re...

Im really very sad to let you all know that one of my two notebooks which I was using for creating skins,

especially dreams is no more functional due to an extremely high voltage of current the last night.

                 But, thankfully by God's grace, I have a second notebook though its low on specs and has Vista Home

Premium installed on it. As I was using it for my office stuff till now, so now I'll hav...

When using Windows Blinds, the 'Create , Edit and Sky and Fog buttons' in Bryce6 get permanently covered by the skin as shown in the screenshot and im unable to use them.

The screenshot here shows 'Diamond' but it happens like this with all other WB Skins, though it works normal with default Vista Aero skin.

Any Bryce6 user who has the same problem or anyone having a solution to this?

Help much appreciated !!

OK Friends,
A Good news for all .dream lovers,
Im just about to complete a project of an 'Abstract' triggered dream I have been working
on recently.
The renders and the uncompressed AVI files have almost occupied 15 gigs of space on my HDD !!
Here is a preview image 'Digital Matrix'

Recently i've noticed a new thing called "Average Skin Rating" under Skins Stats on my personal site.
Is it the average rating of all the skins at my gallery?
Just wanted to know about this in more detail, help much appreciated !!

A few days back I created a dream "Vista Light Whirl" encoded it mpeg-2 for low CPU usage with TMPGEnc 4.0XPress, the file size of the final output was 11mb which according to me was quite large for the animation as the original AVI was 890mb (full frames) uncompressed.

I used the following settings-

Stream format- mpeg-2
Profile and level- MP@HL
Size- 1920x1080
Frame rate- 29.97 fps.
Rate control mode- CBR
VBV buffer size- 224
Video system- NTSC
DC component- 8 bit
Display mode- P...

Also is there any option to rearrange skins or they will only appear according to the newest submitted.
                Thanks in advance.
