      Having beautiful screens will cost you money! One option is to buy the icons and elements from here : http://www.guifx.com/store And option 2 is to have them design the system for you but that is extremely expensive!

      So with Photoshop or any other good photo editor you can create whatever you like and just add the images to HSTouch and program the icons to do whatever you like.

      Unless someone here took it on as a job and create elements without any functions and offer them as templates, it's not that simple because everyone's system is set up and function differently. Am not saying that it's impossible but it is indeed time consuming.
      Over the years some have offered their work (like sliders) for free but you have to search deep on the web to find then.

        I found these 6 videos very helpful in how to create some good looking graphics for HS3 using powerpoint. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG6...wgogsBy7zyejzA

          And more on that work from the Norwegian site as translated with Windows 10 Translator :

          " I can't find the previous thread on this so I'm starting a new one:

          For me, 30% of HS3 is the Transparency
          30% VB Scripting
          and (at least) 30% is HSTouch

          I like the neat 3D interface on HSTouch but don't bother to poke too much either.
          That's Why I use Powerpoint for this.
          (There are some (more or less updated and relevant) videos on Youtube from me on the topic:
          https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/le...-net#post73056
          I have created a fairly usable utility that stremliner a part of this production.
          Here is a HS3 upgraded version of this:
          http://board.homesee...d.php? p = 1182763

          As an old user interface designer, I think that HSTouch is a bit wrinkled and ineffective to work with.
          And as an old programmer I bother not to discuss with the HS guys about this (should probably be it but...) but make my own utility-workarounds.

          I have long (but not continuously) worked with one "coarse designer" program, which removes 90% of the dullest by creating pretty HsTouch projects.

          The Result is Powerpoint2HSTouchXML
          The Idea is:
          -Draw the user interface in Powerpoint.
          -Transfer both graphics and position with few clicks to HSTouch.
          -Generate 3D versions of buttons with both text and graphics that behave like 3D buttons.
          -Drag-up mapping of Tracking and Toggle on/off funskjons at Divice level.
          -Drag-drop calls on Events on buttons.

          Thus, build neat user interfaces with shaded letters and gradient backgrounds with a few keystrokes.
          And Superoptimize the production of:
          -3D buttons with status tracking and toggle.
          -Tracking scrollbars for dimming.
          -Buttons with calls on events.
          .. Then I mean this poses 80-90% of HsTouch needs.

          The Result is now an Alpha version of a program that creates a skeleton of an HSTouch project that can be work on with the HSTouch designer.
          It is 100% intended for 3D projects and useless to anything else.

          I've built a few things over the last few days and need some motivation from others to build it on to something that might look like a beta product. (See enclosed examples)
          If anyone is interested in testing then let me know.
          But OBS, I do not bother to spend time teaching people HSTouch or Powerpoint.

          Glis, did I scare everyone now?

            This thread drifted more into how to do graphics. Does anyone know how to generate a list of artist in HStouch using the sonos plugIN
