I am not sure I understand you correctly, but I will provide some details on the topic.
>> "When I create a custom skin for the grid control and go to the grid folder to get teh display image it is showing me the same image as the menu."
There should be a RadGrid skin thumbnail image in the "Grid" skin images folder. If you have used the "Colorize" option, the skin thumbnail should match the skin color scheme (you need to click on "Save" before clicking on "Download"). If you have used the "Fine-tune" option, the skin thumbnail remains the same as in the skin you have started with. You can create a new skin thumbnail from a screenshot.
>> "I have also noticed that when creating the skin the first tab show the wrong image it is the menu image, but when you go to fine tune it shows the whole grid."
The control thumbnail, which is displayed on the "Colorize" and "Shift colors" pages (both are subordinate to the first main tab on the top - "Colorize"), corresponds to the control tab, which you have selected in the left TabStrip. I don't see a situation in which you are making a custom RadGrid skin and are seeing a RadMenu thumbnail. Can you provide more details and a screenshot about this problem?
