Created by Akamai Design, Designer's Studio is the world's first WYSIWYG resource editor. Now with the expanded feature set in Designer's Studio 1.6 you can change every visual aspect of your operating system. From your startup screen to your trash can and everything in between... desktop pictures.. folders.. windows and widgets... every element of your computers interface... is now able to be edited from within one easy to use application.

Among the many exciting new features in Designer's Studio 1.6 is our Icon Editor. Now with the click of a button you can create complete "Icon Sets" from your system or any active color scheme, edit the set you have created with all the powerful tools built in to DS, and save your icons as either a resource file for future editing, mounted on folders for previewing, or as a stand alone Icon Set Installer that will install your Icon Set anywhere!

Also included with Designer's Studio is the first ever Kaleidoscope Color Scheme Switching Control Strip Module (SSCSM) and a "Classic Pack" of color schemes created by the DS development and beta testing teams.

Users of our Kaleidoscope Scheme Switching Control Strip Module take note. Scheme Switcher has been upgraded to version 2.0.1. Go here if you would like to read the Press Release.

Everyone who has seen Designer's Studio is extremely excited about this new tool which allows ANYONE to create and customize the look of their desktop.

"Designer's Studio is the ONLY necessary utility for Kaleidoscope scheme developers. Its comprehensive and intuitive design make scheme creation and editing what they were intended to be from the outset: fun and easy. The care that Dorian and Tom have taken to insure that color scheme authors receive a good end product is reflected in their attention to detail and concentration on helpful, time-saving features. D'Studio is a brilliant, commercial-quality addition to the Macintosh shareware arena and is destined to become a classic GUI design environment.

"This is nothing short of programming brilliance..."

"Damn fine piece of work. Clean, clear interface; so easy to use even my 5 year old son could do it. (look out for some rocket 'n' dinosaur schemes from him soon)."
