That was exactly what was in my mind too ;-)
But that is really way beyond my Photoshopping skills.

I am not really fond of that crowd blending with the wall, it just does not look right to me, i do like the man in the chair though :)
but clearly someone better at photoshop needs to do this work.

Thnx for the compliment.
It was not worth putting any serious effort in the man in the chair, since it comes from a licensed commercial photograph.

well then i will keep the current one, it is good enough and not offensive.

For the dashboard let me know if any additional feature is needed or any mistake/bug.

i like the new picture except for one thing. That is the man with the big nose and backpack. In my view is diminishes the tone and effect of the picture.
If i am the only one who feels this way then i guess its ok but perhaps it could be blurred out or civered by moving the figure from the right?

I like this with one exception ---
Is there any way to blend the sharp edge from the concert hall image to the speaker image?  Similar to what's on the right side of that image.  The right side has a smooth transition while (I feel) the left side is rather abrupt.

When it was a picture from a concert, that said "fun and happy" which i thought was a nice message to associate with MusicBee
With the speaker on the desk (which i liked apart from the man with the backpack) the message to me was musicbee is for serious music listeners
But in my view blending the pictures just leads to a confused message.

All good points.  I withdraw my request/comment.

Hey! I wasn't the one that suggested the blended images idea.
I only posted what might be done with it.

and I thought the message from the blended image was quite clear:
speakers to headphones, classical or popular music - musicbee is the choice

as some of you pointed in the past that it would be better to make it clear where the user is, so it is done and will ship into the next update.
