    Changing the Nautilus ugly thick white border for thumbnails

    I found the new thick white borders around thumbnails in Lucid rather ugly. So I did some tweaking and got some good results.
    Examples here

    Maybe someone with better graphic design skills can improve it further. Hopefully get that as the default look for Maverick.

    it is actually meant to produce a light shadow effect but on some background colours it ends up producing a bevel look

    nice elegant bevel is still way better than nursery school-looking white border.

    true the thick white border looks fine on a white background, but rather ugly on other colours
