Customize your Windows experience with AeroBlend

716-icon-AeroBlendOne of the most interesting and fun things about Windows 7 and Windows 8 is that they are easily customizable. You can apply themes that not only change the way your desktop looks, but you can customize nearly every part of the UI, making it look the way you want.  While Windows provides an internal interface to help you do this, its isn’t always easy. Third party apps that can do that can sometimes cost you a bit of money, which is why you might want to look at AeroBlend. It’s a UI customization app for Windows, and its free.

AeroBlend automatically changes the color of Windows UI elements to match the current wallpaper or the active application. Wallpaper mode is probably the most recognizable mode, and the one that gets used the most often.  As wallpaper is changed, either manually or via the Windows slideshow, AeroBlend changes the Windows color. Your UI elements can reflect the pallet of the active application or its icon.

AeroBlend is a cool little application. If you’re looking for some way to have your UI elements (Windows, buttons, task bar, etc.) look like the wallpaper or application you’re using, then this is the app for you.  The app, however, doesn’t do much more than this at the current moment.

It might be nice if this turned into a theme creating app that allowed you to create Windows themes and save them to *.themepack files so that they could be shared and distributed between PC’s. That might be something worth paying for…

Adobe Illustrator – a great way to produce your own art

Creating computer wallpaper takes a special touch and a trained hand.  However, even the trained need a helping hand. This is one of the reasons whyI really like tooks like Adobe Illustrator CS5. It’s a multiplatform graphics editing tool, and its totally awesome.

With Adobe Illustrator, you can design vector graphics with precision and power. You can draw accurately in perspective, create variable-width strokes, paint with lifelike brushes, and let your creative juices flow.  You can create distinctive designs with precise shape-building tools, fluid and painterly brushes, and advanced path controls. You’ll have full control of variable-width strokes, arrowheads, dashes, and art brush scaling along a path.

You can use perspective grids to draw shapes and scenes in accurate 1-, 2-, or 3-point linear perspective, creating the look of realistic depth and distance.  You can paint with vectors that resemble real-world brush strokes; and can achieve the expressiveness of natural media with the scalability of a vector graphic tool.

You can also interact with gradients directly on your objects and control the transparency of individual colors in them as well as in gradient meshes. Adobe Illustrator lets you blend and morph one shape into another to create smooth shading, complex contours, and basic animations. Its Blob Brush allows you to sketch with a brush that generates a single clean vector shape, even when strokes overlap. You can draw naturally, using this unique tool together with the Eraser and Smooth tools.
