Thanks Laszlo for your comments - Jonkristian don't let him press you
down, there's a lot of good in your layout!

But it might be a good idea to try some of this at Freerunner (neon is
a nice image viewer) to see the sizes etc.

I don't think you HAVE to implement it if not needed - but it's good
to remember that it's possible to use the sliders too.

That's too bad, the small things make it look good.. But I guess we
have to start somewhere..

Jonkristian, this is the part where you need to step up, maybe with
vbx. This is an awesome opportunity to learn the E-stuff - and I'm
sure it's A LOT easier if someone already familiar with it and Paroli
will mentor you (I'm sure Laszlo knows what I'm talking about... :).
It'll take some time but start with something simple and reach further
when you learn more complex stuff..

Laszlo, nice to see you offering to mentor Jon Kristian, I like it :)
