To be clear, common.css needs to be in the root of the skin directory, not in its res subdirectory. Things in res just get copied to the output, without being scanned for variables.

Yes I got that. Hence why I had the process of template. I did not realise that (1) common.css would be processed as a template and (2) would be copied to the album res/ subdirectory. Thus the way I had it. Did it always do this? I remember not doing it this way in the past anyway.

Not always, but it first shows up in my oldest skin in a version from Jan 2010, so at least a decade.

Okay that's bizarre because it does fine for me.

It works OK if you reload the skin, but during any jAlbum session, the first load of the skin fails. Try ctwist's solution first, but I don't think the final is doing anything in this context, either.


Indeed it was the final. The error that I got too after changing it to what he suggested made me think it also. Removing the final, recompiling, reloading, packing it, removing the skin from the jAlbum directory and installing it anew and it appears to be fine.

Hopefully I got everything else sorted. Ah, right. I forgot to remove the import statements; one was needed in the past and the others were just there. I'll remove those in the next commit.

Does this load then? And thank you for your time. Much appreciated! I am not sure why it happened the way it did but for further updates I will be testing it in this manner.

Ah, then probably I didn't know it at the time. I first made the skin in 2009 I believe and I stopped updating it in 2010 sometime I think it was. I never expected to return to this.

Yes, the dreaded loading dump is gone.

One of the joys of using NetBeans to compile the UI - it has a "Remove unused imports" command. Without that, my stuff would be loaded with unneeded imports. ;)

Nevertheless it's by far a burden to have to rely on anything but the java compiler and a text editor. I also type much quicker than using the mouse and not all my systems even have a moue though obviously this computer does have one.

I actually removed the imports very quickly but after making the change it still gave the error because final was still there. But I without thinking lazily did a git checkout instead and then removed the final that way. In my head I probably was thinking that the change didn't work so why use it. But then of course that didn't really change anything since it also had the final.

Anyway does the skin load okay now? It seems to but I wouldn't trust my judgement at this time, not with all the things going on right now, and the odd things I have seen including with jAlbum today the past week and a half.

In settings, General/Reflection/ the option 'Don't include original images' clashes with jAlbum's 'Include originals'. It might be better renamed similar to the tooltip text, say 'Only show reflection'.

What does the change reflections by times setting do, I can't see any difference between 1, 2 or 3?

Hmmm that's a good point. Thanks. I've updated it.

Ah. This is a niche feature. I put it like this in the IAQ (which would be added on my website after publishing but it's also in the skin):

--
What does 'Chain reflection clockwise 3 time(s) by 1' mean?

The 1 means that for each reflection in the chain 'jump' by one direction
in the indicated direction. Thus if you start out down the original image
would be reflected down, and then that new image would be reflected left,
and then that itself would be reflected up and then finally that image
would be reflected right.

If however you were to chain the reflections two times by three then it
would start out as reflected down, then that would be reflected right and
then that would be reflected up.

You can jump 1 - 3 directions at a time up to a total of 7 times. Both
default to 1.

--

Most likely not used by anyone but myself. This is the type of thing that it can result in however. The fractal is in the Julia set that a program of my own generated. Does that make more sense then?

And thank you for trying it out!

Right, it with the Sample portfolio the effect is subtle, at least for my old eyes ;)

Sample portfolio? You don't mean the preview for each style I include, right? Because that's the default settings - which has the reflection and gradient paint filters enabled.

Of course it will depend on the image how easy it is to see. When I have looked at variations it was difficult in my tired head and indeed poor vision I have sometimes had difficulties telling (and I've been wearing glasses since I was 13o, first eye surgery was when I was 17mo and by the time I was nine I had my third eye surgery and that was all they could do). So I can totally understand how you might have run into that problem!

Thanks for testing it out. I'm off for the day shortly and maybe tomorrow I'll republish this.

Have a good night! I will post here when I have published it too of course.
