    This is my first attempt at using this web tool but I couldnt get the desired effect/color.... Sometimes, it wasn't even changing the color... when fine tuning... example... i tried to select a white color and it was ignoring it...  I had to change it in the css after it was generated.

    Anyway my real problem is I tried to replicate a color theme from a screenshot I got from a graphic designer using the tool and although i choose picked up the color 1st attempt in using the toolfrom the dropper tool (used the hex codes ##AABBCC)... the final result was not as dark as the mock up i got.SO now I'm trying to see if I can modify the color directly on the generated output in photoshop...

    I'm working on the RadWindow borders... In the zip i see png and gif files... which one of those is it radwindow using?
    Can I just apply my color modification on the sprites and save it as is ?

    Hello Gotcha,

    You are right, once you have finished editing in Visual Style Builder and downlaod the skin, you could edit by yourself the CSS and sprites using Photoshop.

    In your case you need to edit both png and gif files, as the png is used for cases when enable shadow property is set to true and  gif is used when shadow is not enabled. You should ensure that solid color and gradients are same in both files. Once you match the desired colors you could save it and use your custom skin, which will be both created with Visual Style Builder and manually. I think that Creating RadWidnow Custom Skin cloud be also useful.
