Alchemy VS for 7 by juiceboxxxxxx Alchemy VS for 7 by juiceboxxxxxx
Well I decided to make the VS completely from my shot Shine as some people have requested it. However the name Shine is already occupied by at least 2 other Shine visual styles on Windows 7 alone. Thus Alchemy VS.
Some things are slightly different, but overall it's mostly the same. This version however comes with a white skin for anyone that might want it. Additionally, navigation buttons and start orbs are included. LS coming soon.
Hope you all enjoy!

For the rest of the Alchemy Suite:
VS for 8.1: Alchemy Theme for 8.1 by Cleodesktop (Big thanks to cu88 for doing this port!)
Litestep:  Alchemy for Litestep
Wallpaper: Alchemy Wall

Tools for Installing Custom Themes:
UxTheme Patcher - Used to patch system to allow third party themes.
Customizer God by Kishan-Bagaria - An all in one tweaking tool for visual styles
Aero Blur Tweaker - Kishan-Bagaria
I use Aero Blur Tweaker all the time, however this visual style shouldn't require it.

Do you plan on making a Windows 10 version?

Hmm, I'm not sure what you mean by the font looking strange and small, it seems normal to me. Unless you are referring to the multicolor effect that's going on. That's from Windows' native font rendering which is terrible. I recommend a program called MacType which should patch up the issues with font display.

As for the search button, is that the one I provided in the download? If so I will have to edit it and update the .zip file.

Thanks for bringing these issues to me, I appreciate it. And I'm glad that you like the theme, thanks for the kind words.

Well I always leave all my themes in my C:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder. If you're removing the theme folder from that folder after applying, then there probably will be issues. I would recommend leaving the Alchemy theme folder in there.

Hmm, in that case, I don't know what's going on. That's really quite strange.

Any plans to port this for 10?

If I were on 10, then yes. But unfortunately I'm still here on windows 7 so I can't really port to 10 as I would not be able to test the VS before releasing.

I really wish I had an 8.1 machine to test out a port on, but sadly without one, an 8.1 port becomes rather difficult.

I used a combination of Vista Style Builder and Photoshop, as well as a program known as Restorator. You should be able to find them with a google search. I also followed this guide.

Thanks mate! Unfortunately no, I find borderless VS's tend to be a bit finnicky and act strange with some applications. I made this VS with borders so it will work better with most apps and won't look strange.

Unfortunately not at the moment. I started with Blanked! by neiio and edited in the blzos icons by blazezone for the tree view side bar. The Cordyceps icons by tokems however are bit cheaty as I simply resized in PS and pasted them over the screen shot I took. But, it is still possible to get those icons in the actual explorer, it would just require me to resize the icons and save as .icos and place them in.

A very nice PS .ico plugin can be found here if you'd like to scale the icons yourself to 32 px and save as .icos to import into iconpackager as well as for use in the superbar. This is what I do for most of the icons in my shots that aren't .ico to begin with.
