I've finally been successful in creating a bootskin, for the most part. I am not worried about putting a progress bar in it, just to thave the bootskin image showing for the duration of the boot. But, like a couple of other folks here, the image was shifted to the left when I rebooted and it is always like that every time I reboot. Sure, I could go into PhotoShop and displace the image to the right, with the pixels wrapping around to help offset this, but it seems like this would be unnecessary if there is an easier solution at hand. Also, how can I know if this same predicament will occur on other computers? Does anyone know the cause of this 'shifting' and how to resolve it?
