Aero Color Show does similar job as Windows 8 Auto Aero Colorization feature but instead getting color from wallpaper it takes color from image files - one picture at time

known issues:
there is problem loading large images

Windows 7 only

Is this for the purpose to combine the wallpaper show with the Aero glass color "show"? "Aura" already does that.
dejco's avatar
no it doesnt get color from wallpaper but from images from you choice

How to apply the changes? Its doing nothing for me.
dejco's avatar
the color should be changed automatically when image changes but also i noticed that with images with similar average color is hard to notice the change try some images that have solid color (some solid colors images: [link]), and the setting are automatically saved to setting.xml on exit

Nothing. Actually I was using custom theme and the colorization was very hard to notice.

I was just about to ask! :D

Oh, and I'm not sure what the difference would be between selecting colours and this- after all, this just scans the images for a dominant colour, right?
dejco's avatar
lol this is the same question why would you use picture slide show if you can manually navigate thru images

Well, what I mean is, you're not going to see the images in that folder anyways, right?

With a slide show, it displays the images in a special place on the screen, and you actually see those pictures... and it changes by itself.

Don't get me wrong, i'm not out trollin' :D I couldn't code for my life ;)
