    Where could I find the background that the msn messenger alert service uses? This is the box that pops up when you receive a new email or someone signs on. Thanks.

    isn't it just a gradient that changes according to your windows settings? IIdoRC then that is simple to make in photoshop or using a css gradient depending on what you want it for

    IIdoRC... what does that mean??

    I think its always the same background regardless of what your settings are. And I have no graphics skills whatsoever (I'm a programmer) so it probably wouldnt be so simple for me to make.

    all you have to do then is do a print screen of the alert, select the eyedropper tool and click the blue part of the alert. Then where the background and foreground colour click the background and set it to white. Then click the paint bucket tool and hold down, a menu will pop up with a gradient tool, choose that. Then drag the tool down the canvas you want

    i will do a quick one and post it on here...

    A quick and dirty way would also be to take a screen shot when the popup appears. :ichatangel: You may have to photoshop out some text though.

    LOL spluf

    here is a quick go...

    and jeff, i am very sure the colour changes depending on what your windows colours are, in ME (which i am using) it is active window colour 2 and white so it might be different (it might be totally different in XP if you are using it)
