Vista Reflections 3 + PSD by GCTHawk7 Vista Reflections 3 + PSD by GCTHawk7
Ahhhh, about time, right? Vista Reflections 2 has been my most popular web posting of anything, ever (that is not saying that much, but meh). I do keep up on all of its comments and such, and someone asked: "Why don't you make one for Vista?" To that, I said, "Why the fuck don't I make one for Vista?" Fun stuff, right? I set about taking the now seemingly crappy design of VR2 and making it actually look good and decided to style it like Vista. I kept the same look and idea to the entire thing, but this time around used an actual custom-made Windows Vista window; fit with the glass and all, it looks pretty sexy and pretty authentic.

Anyhow, I've included three resolutions:
1920x1200
1680x1050
1280x1024

I figured those were used most. Most other resolutions should look just fine using one of the same aspect ratios. Contact me if you need help or REALLY need me to custom make your resolution.

This is NOT made for any specific program. I know there are a few out there. I included directions on how to use it with LogonStudio Vista, but it should work with anything you've got. Let me know if you need help with that.

Bonus time! I was thinking of you guys, I've included the super amazing Photoshop PSDs used to make this mofo. Directions are included in the readme, but you are gonna be able to make this to use ANY background and have it look just as good as the original. If you don't have Photoshop, hit me with a message and I'll do my best to accommodate; I aim to please.

***IT IS TO YOUR BENEFIT TO RTFM, I'VE ALREADY HAD MANY INQUIRES THAT ARE CLEARLY COVERED. Saves everyone time, hehe. (use the readme.txt)***

Enjoy Vista Reflections 3, and let's get it to be more popular than its second counterpart!

Note: You are encouraged to make your own versions of it and share them with others. I thought about a watermark on this thing, but that is not my style. Please link back to my deviantArt account, please? :(

I actually had to make that screenshot by hand by looking at the actual thing. Kind of a pain really.

Made it in Photoshop. It is a bluish color almost completely trnasparent and then a guassian blur on everything behind it. Need Photoshop to do it. If you have Photoshop, download the PSD and open it up to see.

Instead of the Photoshop file, could you turn the "white" area on the Photoshop file to transparent and save it to a PNG? I'm a cheapo so I don't have Photoshop yet. >.<

So I noticed that this is not for XP but this has the Aero blur. I don't know if you'll ever port this to XP but if you do I recommend using "Gaussian Blur" in photoshop to make it look blurred, but not actually be blurred,therefore making it possible to look like this in XP :)

Hehe, due to the nature of the login, there is no way to access the glass API. So, that is actually a fake blur. The fact you thought it was real means I did a good job, eh? The entire logon is actually just an image. I used a guassian blur with a radius of 3 pixels. :)

I have clearly show that you made these original works...
However, your name was in my "friends"-list... And i know after many years, that this can be happen...
What? Your artwork is in my list!

DA team, correct these mistakes.. like you have stated that you see those.... Because this may lead to "misunderstood" and original artist know that i haven't abuse his//their works!

If you appreciate GCTHawk7 a little, you will make sure that these kind of errors will not happen again!

Remind me, if links are dead... so i can forward those to DA team. I just checked and all links should work.... but hey here is millions artworks, so i do not blame the DA... quite opposite.

Take care

Nope, unfortunately not. But you might like to use Vista Reflections 2.. it is similar and it is for XP. Check my profile for it. :)

That is the same 16:10 aspect ratio as the 1920x1200 and 1680x1050; either of those really should look just the same.

Very nice! I made one using the Azelias wallpaper that Microsoft has for Windows 7.

Unfortunately, I have a pen tablet which makes a on screen keyboard appear for logon. It takes away from the beauty of the image as it is right in the glass part. :(

Anyways, excellent work.

You can also use a program like TuneUp Utilities. It has a Windows Customization feature in it, plus you can use it to optimize your computer!
