I don't know if anyone else is having the same quandary over these asp.net themes- they work excellently and are a very good idea enabling you to give your website professional-designer' s sheen without doing any work, but where on earth can we get them
If your bent is towards business process and not graphical design, it is unthinkable to produce a professional quality theme in a reasonable amount of time so you really need to have access to them somehow even if it means buying them.
My version of Visual Studio shipped with SmokeAndGlass-which works great but I'm getting sick of the sight of it, and I couldn't find BasicBlue anywhere, and I've heard now that Microsoft has stopped shipping SmokeAndGlass??
I can't find any design studios selling asp.net themes, and I'm loathe to think of the idea of taking a straight HTML-CSS design and rejigging it into an asp.Net theme- what is anyone else doing?

Yes, thanks I have seen these. I don't want to seem ungrateful but I get the feeling these are all the same theme but with different colours, and the skin file is very sparse in the controls that it skins, compared to SmokeAndGlass for example. With the
SmokeAndGlass theme it really has a 3-D effect with graphics and drop shadows-is this really all there is without commissioning a professional graphics guy?

Well that's what I thought, but I'm still looking...You'd have thought there would be loads of graphics houses churning them out, but I can't find anything.
