Fantastic work Phil - it's really impressive how slick and easy you've made this usually laborious process.

Anymore thoughts on 'white space' removal?

Also, a case-sensitivity check for textures and their respective labels would be useful.

Thanks.

i think whitespaces already get removed, don´t they? too busy with nox 3.0 atm, will extend this tool and fix the bugs in the near future.
aim is to provide one big skin-checking and converting tool. indenting also works btw.
some of the checks work already, some do not. don´t know about the texture check atm..

Hey guys, is there any easy way to convert/adjust an 1080i skin to 720p? The skin Xperience 1080 works 99% good on my resolution 1440x900, but in some viewtype I get wrong position for posters and other items.

Thanks.

I wish to have Rotten Tomatoes (user+critics) + IMDB both ratings display in skin.

that wouldn´t be solved by conveting the skin to 720p. the aspect ratio would still be the same.

hmm so the issue is about 16:9 vs 16:10, no solution in this case?

Hi Phil! I recently got a 4K tv and could notice that Kodi does a good job rescaling everything. Since I was using a 720p skin I felt curious about how it would look in 1080 and I found your utility... it works like a charm! Many thanks! I converted the skin and I can assure you that everything looks sharper and more beautiful... but now I can't help wondering how it would look in 4K,... could it be possible to add another option to your utility? Maybe converting xml's from 1080 to 4k?

Thanks in advance!

Just converting the XML's shouldn't make a skin sharper as Kodi coverts them anyway. To make it look better you'll need to redo the textures.

yup, what Hitcher said
Converting to 4k would only be helpful for pixel perfect placement of textures. No difference in image quality.
