First of all, i have to remind you again that you're uploading it wrong.

When you upload a ZIP file, it automatically converts to XSF. What you're doing here, is doubling your filesize, because you've got copies of your player's psds.

If someone wants to take a look at them, they will unpack the PSD themselves. Don't double your files.

Allow me to show you what your archive structure looks like:

Downloaded file - iTunes.xsf contains (each extra - signifies subcategory ):

-iTunes Mini PSD
-iTunes PSD
-iTunes v.1.xsf
--iTunes.zip
---iTunes Mini PSD
---iTunes PSD
-iTunes v.1.zip
--iTunes Mini PSD
--iTunes PSD
-Screenshot.jpg
-Thumbnail.gif

So, it would appear you've got the exact same files compressed twice and duplicated three times!

That is called extremely bad file management.

The proper archive should look like:

Downloaded file - iTunes.xsf
-Normal.psd
-Mini.psd

And that will be all that is necessary. Including screenshots and thumbnails is unnecessary, you only need a layer named 'preview' in one of your psds, to show a screenshot in the skin browser.

Okay, that takes care of the flaming part.

To comment on the actual skin itself: I love it. I'm not an iTunes fan but i know a good, polished design when i see one. Good job, and a 5 star rating from me.

Just learn how to manage your archives, mmkay?
I shoot and ask questions later.

Take no offense of it.
