Well, I check back infrequently, and I noticed IPS has released a new skin with 2.3.0, but when I checked out the GDK for the skin, it's still way behind what it should be.I would like to see the GDK for the editor images, as well as all those PNG images used in the dropdowns on the profile pages and in the show topic pages where the user dropdown is. (Also that online/offline indicator, star images for ratings, etc...).A good GDK consists of all the images used in the product, but IPS gives us a half-baked GDK that only allows us to freely modify the button graphics and folder graphics. :|What is going to be needed to get a GDK for those?
I thought there would be a gdk for the new skin, but since I was wrong, I made a replication of the logo myself.
The new GDK should be in the client center now :)If there's still things missing, let us know.
The PNG images (those used for RTE icons and in the profile) are from a licensed icon set that we have used as-is. Therefore, though we could include them in a GDK, they would only be a single layer - it is just as easy to open the png file directly in your graphics editor and edit it. Our GDK's contain our unique, custom images.

I'm not sure what benefit you'd gain from it... the images that we could put in a Photoshop file are exactly the same as the ones you'll find in the style_images/*/ directories. I don't see how putting all the pngs in a photoshop file would make things any easier - in fact, it'd increase the size of the GDK exponentially.
*bump* from page 4.
It strikes me as a wholly pointless exercise to clutter up the ( already pretty large! ) editable GDK with non-editable bitmap layers, just for the sake of including every image. I guess a folder within the zip would work, but it's really not that much work to open up the IPB zip and pull the images from there.
How would putting one image in at a time increase the size in an exponential manner? ...That makes no sense.
Yes, but that still doesn't increase exponentially by any stretch.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_growth
