How to darken the fanart?
#1
Hello,

I've added to Shade a new TV view (taken from Simplicity skin). I'd like to know how I could darken the fanart behind, as text doesn't appear due to contrast. I've looked, but couldn't find the command to darken the fanart image... I guess there's a switch somewhere?

Here's a screenshot of how it is now : [Image: screenshot022h.png]

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Apply a shaded image over top the fanart or use a fade animation to the fanart image. Many skins do this. You can look through their media folders to get some ideas. Alaska is a good example for an image overlay and Fusion I believe uses a fade animation.

Just put a black, or whatever color, image in front of it. Set transparency via Photoshop

Or just use a <colordiffuse>AARRGGBB</colordiffuse> in the image control.

Thanks guys!

Just found how to do it, with your explanations. as shown by your diverme method, there's a lot of way to do it.

I added this code

Code:
<control type="image">
        <posx>0</posx>
        <posy>0</posy>
        <width>1290</width>
        <height>720</height>
        <texture>shade/vignette2.png</texture>
</control>

Where vignette2.png is a transparent mask.

Thanks again!
