The Outline skin use the color schemes which does not support image transparency. Unless this is fixed, i guess we have to live with that.

Nice one, thanks Daniel.
This bugged me a long time and maybe it will breathe into it new life into color scheme skins. One thing we need to allow are background images on WidgetGroups which will support color schemes. Will file a separate wishlish item for that.

I am not sure if I get your last point. My solution simple does not remove transparency from the source file of all images.
Please name a specific image where something is not as desired, so I can have a look.

Well, If you have a skin which uses color schemes and you would like to add sampler or preview decks support, how do you currently style the WidgetGroups background image?
You can
a) add a background image via <style> CSS declaration for WidgetGroups, but the color scheme support does not work on these. This is what we currently use for fixed size SampleDecks in all skins except Outline. The PreviewDeck has no background image, we use only boarders here because of resizing.
b) add a dummy button that serves no other function than to provide the background image for the sampler which can than be styled using the Mixxx color scheme support. This is what we currently use in Outline. The problem with that approach is, that you cant resize the button and resizable CSS styled boarders do not support color scheme. Thats the reason Outline skins do not have a full PreviewDeck yet.

tldr: We miss a resizable <Background> image (alternatively border images) for WidgetGroups which support color schemes.
