I quite like Luna Element, 4 is better than 5 generally, but, after a while I find it to be dark, too depressing. I've tried loads of themes, but the best have gotta be, in order:

Luna Royale

Royale

Luna Element 4

Luna Element 5

These are fantastic!

How about a Registry Search and Replace tool? This would be awesome.

I've asked MS for 3 years to fix Regedit so you can Find and Replace and they won't entertain the idea.

PowerQuest Partition Magic used to come with something similar so when you shrunk a partition to add another and move your data/programs you could change the drive letter in the Registry.

Would that be hard to do?

I just tried out eXPander and I have to say, I really like it. It definitely improves on Compression Bin (no offense jcarle).

I have a question and request though.

1. Is modifyPE included in the app (I'm not clear weather it is or not)

2. Would you consider adding an option to make a .cab archive of a folders contents e.g CabTool.

Although I like CabTool I hate the way it renames the archive to upper case!

Thanks.

Edit: Sorry, one more thing to consider.

3. If you select to process multiple files via the shell extension explorer can/will crash.

This isn't a problem with the app, it's just that explorer can't cope sending more than one file this way (or so I've found).

My only workaround would be a shortcut in SendTo but it's purly up to you.

Keep up the good work.

eXPander 1.5 has gone final. Improvements in final version are (among others):

- Settings are stored in a .Net configuration file and not in the registry.

- Drag 'n' drop algorithm improved (for loop is faster than a foreach one :P)

Enjoy and do not hesitate in post your opinions, bugs and suggestions.

The newest version of ShrinkIt returns a "application failed to initialize properly" error. Any idea why, I am on a recent install of XP.

Shrinkit is an awesome tool !

can you add a slider to the quality selection (or add a lot more options between 75 and 100, like 80,85,90,95)

and have more standards for image sizes.. (maybe allow custom image sizes and a 'keep aspect ratio' option)

800x600

1024x768

1200x1024

donation sent :)
