      That tutorial is more for the complete skin. I'm looking for a tutorial for the icon itself.

      Does anybody has a tutorial on how to create these icons or the APS skin layers??

        I think its an artist thing. Do a search and you will find one of my previous posts stating where you can find loads of these.

        Wincustomise of some thing like that.

          most of those are just normal desktop icons.. go do a search for desktop mod sites.. they have icon kits there you can use.

            Making your own icons is more fun. Plus you get the advantage of having them all look similar. http://members.rogers.com/electronbox/skintest.jpg Having said that, it is an artistic thing. Each icon has to be created from scratch, what you're asking for is basically step by step tutorials on creating each image you need? It not going to happen.

              I'm just looking for the main basics like this one:

              It's not exactly the same as the icons above.

                So basically what you are trying to do is place the "icon" within the bubble? Like what I did.

                  You've got it.
                  Searching the internet gives a lot of simular bubbles but not the one you used.
                  Have you got the PSP/Photoshop layer/how to or whatever for me?

                    Thats what I did. I made mine different from the ones I've seen online. When you make the bubbles just add your icon pic in between the layers. Just put the highlights in front of the image and the rest of the layers behind it.

                    The icons that you are requesting can either be found or have to be made. The DVD, players icons, GPS buttons, folders etc have to be made and then placed within your bubble image.

                        i use photoshop, and images from all over the place. i found a decent set of fonts (similar to wingdings, u know, with images not text) and that had some nice stop/play/controll type buttons, loaded those into photoshop and just played with em till they fitted in.
                        you can get images from anywhere...
