Lumi, a first preview

Tue Jan 31, 2012, 9:33 AM
Hey ! :]

So I've made some new changes on Lumi, my future Visual Style for Windows 7. It will continue to change in some details, and it's certainly not over yet, different parts are still the one from Soft7.

Anyway here's the actual result :

White isn't it ? ^^

My main ideas were :
more "minimal", less transparent, and add a tiny color.

The window on top left is active, the others are inactive (mainly a difference in the shadow, but the windows themselves are a bit more transparent).

The "Yes" button is hovered, like the Music icons. The DVD drive is selected

I believe the caption buttons are too subtle right now, and I'm still trying to do a nice hover effect, subtle but visible.

It includes the new icons on the Navigation Pane, obviously based on the icons in Mac OS Lion, entirely made from scratch (all of them) with the subtle blue of the theme.

By the way, don't get it wrong, I hardly have time to play all this video games, I haven't touched Batman AC in 2 months...

I really want this theme. I can't wait. Could you share for my personal use? :)

I have to finish some little details first, but yes I'm thinking on how to release it, not finished, but sooner ^^ I'm hardly working on it this days, and Windows 8 is coming very quick, that's also why I've lost a bit my motivation.
And I'm also not sure that I will customize Win8 since it seems not ready for that, and not good looking to begin with... But we'll see what happens then.

Okay. Yes Win8 closer and closer. Waiting for new news. :)

I'm still changing things, but I couldn't say that I really work on it, I only modify things when I feel the need to it. But the main reason is that I don't find the time anymore to work on something like this, and I'm certainly not submitting screenshots for something that merely evolved, even if it did evolved.

i hope that you will finish someday, your themes always looks awesome :)

Here's a new screenshot which you can see full size, showing how it looks right now, you could say that many things have been done but not much have change, and it still contains elements from Soft7 2.0.


I try to work more on it lately, but I have to admit that I use Windows 8 more and more frequently (when it doesn't crash ^^)

looks nice and clear, the buttons are great and the color combination of the bar and the windows is magnificent :) is very fine

Believe it or not, I come to your profile page at least once a week to check on the progress on this. I really want my PC to look like this, it's a complete improvement over the default Windows 7 look.
