10.5: One way to create an opaque menu bar
Authored by: sipatel on Oct 31, '07 06:12:43PM

As I only use 1920x1200 resolution on both a 24" monitor (G4/MDD) and an iMac 24", the 21px bar at top isn't a problem.

My original submission suggested that the best way to work this is to take a snapshot of the desktop using CMD-SHIFT-3 and then opening that file to determine the number of pixels in the menubar before working on the actual pictures.

I have also added a 1px black line to separate the menubar from the desktop picture.

I saved all my doctored pics by simply adding -A to the name(s) and have retained the originals in the hope that Apple or a third party will produce a better solution for those who don't like the transparent menubar.
