    Please use this thread to share your custom Category Images that you think other users might find useful. I have provided a photoshop PSD file of the images used in the Blue3/StreamedMP skins and some screenshots of them in use.

    Here is some sample code to display the selected category image:

      <description>Selected Category Image</description>
      <texture flipY="true" diffuse="Thumb_Mask.png">Categories\#MovingPictures.SelectedNode.FileFriendlyName.png</texture>  
      <animation effect="fade" time="250">WindowOpen</animation>
      <animation effect="fade" time="250">WindowClose</animation>          
    If you download and want to use the image when browsing your categories, simply drop the file into your Skins Media\Categories folder e.g.

    C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Skin\Blue3Wide\Media\Categories

    Its also important that the image name matches your category name e.g. If you have a Box Set collection called 'Aliens' the corresponding image filename should be named 'Aliens.png'

    A Big Thanks to Xzener's, whom created a collection of icons to be used with Media Browser, link to his update thread can be found here: Xzener's Media Browser Icon's

    I have provided a download link to a set of images which include most of the popular genre's e.g. Action, Adventure.

    If you previously grabed my category images, then please re-download them, because i fixed the shadowing errors.
