I've been lurking around the forums for some while, and looking to get into skinning myself. so i thought i make some mockups and give it a shot.
Always liked the style of the start era of film. so here an idea, just some quick mockups.


Hehe old school Smile looks nice shame the movie covers are so new and shiney
One thing I've always wanted was to be able to do is dynamically 'black and white' an image so I could create a theme where the fanart was 'black and white'. I could do it manually but would be more use as an XBMC theme if XBMC could do it.

I doubt there would be much developer interest plus I have no idea if doing this dynamically for 1,000 or so 1920x1080 fanarts would cause slowdown, I could only assume...
isn't there some sort of way to desaturate an image in XMBC?
No, as of now there isn't.
It shouldn't be too hard to add though.
I mean the math for it is pretty simple, and there's more than enough sample source code on this.

Something like <saturation>Value between 0 and 100</saturation> should be possible.
I will need this for Phyek's skin concept later down the road.
So if it has not been added by then, I might give it a shot.
