Simplifying the android 9 patch viewer

Hi All,

I was reading the latest comment on the android 9 patch viewer app and would love to hear suggestion on how to fix the problem.

The viewer has been just a repository of images so far, without using any sort of categories.

As the number of files grow, the browsing becomes harder. What makes things even more complicated is that there is no meta-data associated with the 900 images.

I'm open to suggestions here, so please offer a simple way to add category without having to rework the entire set of images too much.

Thanks in advance,

Android 9 patch - pack 22 - more buttons with 5 states and 19 hues!

Hi all.

Another group of buttons with 5 states here. They are exported with 19 different hues.
These include the following states:

  • normal, 
  • normal focused, 
  • normal focused pressed, 
  • disable
  • disabled focused.
They seem to be working better when applied on a neutral background or a background with similar colors.

The focused states won't work great on large areas, the scale markers are slightly too long.
But this can be fixed easily with the 9-patch tool, Photoshop or gimp.
