Any XP system graphics wiz kids out there.......
User Account logon picture/logo/icon whatever you want to call it.... How do we make it transparent?, ie I want say a circular picture and anything outside the circle to be transparent so that my custom logonui graphics show through the transparency. (Using custom visual style and editing logonui.exe with reshacker)
I know it should be 48x48 pixels BMP (although GIF works too and probably JPG), initially I tried magic pink (RGB 255,0,255) and have tried Gif Movie Gear which seems to have limited success in re-mapping the transparent colour background (when displayed in the User Account dialogue the background of my picture is showing through the white of the dialogue background), however when I go to log in the background of my picture obscures everything underneath with black. O_o
Does Logonui have its own palette different from windows (magic pink didnt work here either, it was just bright pink). And if so what software would you recommend I use.... I have paint.net (latest non-beta version) and gimp 2.4.6 installed (aswell as the 30 day trial of GIF Movie Gear).
