The image is darker cause I took out the green component and then added it back into the original picture. I was experimenting since there was a blue aura around the selection and I was trying to get it to go gray. Sorry if I reused your image without asking?

Ok, I thought I made a mistake somewhere, making it dark..
Well, anyone is allowed to reuse my image(s) :)

maybe you could make a copy available without the blue background? that way the head wouldn't have half-transparencies that blend with the background. :)

I excitedly made this splash, only to find out the name was changing right after I made it :)
(I have a dark win2k theme)

You guys want phoenix to load quickly...why waste processor time and about 500k of ram to load (of all things) a BMP file!


Agreed... I'll also submit that splash screens really make it difficult to use other apps while the program with the splash is loading... Often I'll launch a program and load it in the back ground and simply continue working... With splashes, I usually can't do this because there's gaping hole in the middle of my application window. Besides, if I really wanted to watch something while a program loads, I'll watch my CPU graph.. :D

I'd prefer it if the program starts instantly, so instead I will have a nice splash that gives me a heads-up..
the fact that it is a command line parameter is good, and I think it should stay that way..
