  • Icons

    Hi Guys,
    Where do get your icons/symbols for all the functions from? For example the picture of the globe with the satelite for the GPS button.

    Many use Google Images to search for such stuff, then edit it in Photoshop to make the "Icon" transparent ect. Here is an example of stuff to use for a GPS button.

    Keep in mind, most of the images on Google's search are copywrited.

        You know we should start a thread with freeware icons in it for use by skinners. I have just been considering what to use for an update to my skin, and have trawled loads of places. There are freeware icons available, a load have recently appeared for vista.

        The other thing is the use of fonts, like Webdings, Showshifter etc. If you know the font is freeware, then we should list it for others to use. I tend to use the symbol type fonts so others can customise your skin to suit there own needs.

        Have a look at http://www.iconshock.com/ or http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/ or google for freeware icons vista.

        Perhaps we should also start a thread with graphics bits, like buttons etc for others to use, just a thought

        cheers

          Icons for RR

          Another great place to get icons, that I have used is WinCustomize. The icons are usually VERY good, and are freeware to use on your system.


          I think it would be great to have a list of places to find icons and such for skin creation. I do not think the button, and other graphics is really that great of an idea though. Personally I think it would start to make a lot of the skins look alike. I like the diverse look the skins that are available now have. This of course, is just my opinion.
