PureSkin Maker allows you to quickly and easily convert a standard bitmap (BMP) into a PureSkin (PVS). A PureSkin is a very small and fast loading file compared to a standard bitmap and is applied to a PureVision Form adding a PureSkin Gadget.

To create a PureSkin simply select PureSkin Maker from the Tools menu, locate the bitmap file you wish to convert to a PureSkin, then press the Convert button.

If you are pleased with the results, right click on the skin and select "Save PureSkin". The skin will be saved to the PureSkin (PVS) format. (This example skin saves to a 33KB PureSkin file using file compression)
