Description:

I am posting this to see if people out there are intrested in seeing more icons like these. There will be more to come as I get time to add to this icon set. I hope to include a complete device icon set as soon as I can. I might just turn this into a full blown icon set if enough people like the idea of photo realistic icons.

It will be a challenge to get this going but I am willing to put in the work. Also if you are intrested in helping out then email me and let's see what we can do with this idea. I would like to first flesh out the devices set though before moving on to filesystem, mimetypes, or apps icons.


P.S. Look at the license text file for my email address.

**PhotoIcons Version 0.0.3 - 02/02/03***

I did not get to enough time to finish up this icon set this weekend. Despite that I only have about maybe 8-12 icons left to do and I'll wrap up and finish with all the device icons. :)

1.) I fixed up the printer icon a bit on this release.

2.) I added 25 new icons.

3.) Added index.desktop file. I am using the same technique as the Aqua guys to scale my icons. Please follow the instructions below inorder to correctly install my icons.

A.) Go to ~/.kde/share/icons directory and extract the icons package there using archiver.

B.) Then install the icon package again via the Kcontrol panel.

E.) Then change the size of your icons in the KControl panel and see the magic at work ( **crosses fingures ** ) !

P.S. Any problems you have please post here. Thanks ! Oh yeah please don't crush my server. I just got a hypermart account because this icon set is to big for KDE-Look.org. So don't /. the server please and eventually my hypermart account. Thanks. :)



**PhotoIcons Version 0.0.2 - 01/26/03***

1.) I haven't really done much this weekend in terms of adding more icons, I
went ahead and re-made the previous icons all over again. I replaced the
printer icon with a image of one that looks better IMHO.

2.) I went ahead and changed the appearance of the mounted icons as advised by someone else. Now when mount-able icons are not mounted they are semi-transparent. Let me know if you guys like that idea or not ? If you have
better suggestions or would like to help then please feel free to do so ! My
email as always in the license text file.

3.) I added 10 new icons for you guys to try out and nitpick. : ) Of course I
will be adding more icons next week and more then likely drawing to an end with the device icons and moving onto the filesystem icons next. **Sarcasm** Boy is that going to be fun. **Sarcasm** :)

4.) Changed the version of this icon set to start off with "ver X.X.X" instead of "ver X.X".


See you guys next week !!

Yours truly, Doug



**PhotoIcons Version 0.0.1 - 01/20/03***

1.) Added drop shadow to Archos Icon, which in turn made the image(s) slightly
smaller yet they are still their correct size. In other words the 128x128 is
128x128 but the image was reduced in size to compensate for the dropshadow
which I added.

2.) Added 2 more icons, printer and tablet.

3.) This icon set will now be under the GPL license.

Problem with photos is that they are unrecongisable when icon sized (16x16 to 48x48). I don't think a usable icon set can be created from photos. (I tried before and failed miserably :-)

Great work - I especially love the transparency on the Icons :)

Once request, though - there's only one thing stopping me from making full use of this Icon set, and that's a CD-ROM or DVD icon. If you could make something like this I would be extremely happy :)

Thanks again for a great icon set!

Should I use the CD, CDRW, and DVD-Rom images from OS-X ? I have been debating this for a while now. I would like to know what everyone else thinks. I would of course add alternatives that are differrent but I think that they would go nicely with this icon set and match the floppy and zip icons as well.

The alternatives would be images of external drives or maybe just internal drives. Depends on what you guys think. Please give me some feed back. Thanks in advance Doug.

Are OS-X icons GPL'ed or similar licensed? I doubt it; and if they are not, you won't be able to use a free license for your icons. The IcOsX icons suffer the same problem. Just a thought.

I think I will try to make something that does not look like a link, but just so you both know if you look closely at the 128x128 image you can see that the mounted icon has a green dot were the power light is supposed to be and the other does not. To tell you the truth it would be very hard to do something like that and still make it noticeable to the viewer on an icon 128x128 let alone 64x64 or below.

Very nice icons indeed, I only got one little comment.
The arrow on the mounted icon makes you think it's a link to a device instead of a mounted device.

Hey's right... perhaps it would be a nice thought to make little lights on the device to turn on like a power led or something similar. Or maybe make the unmounted device semi transparent. It would be something different too :-)

I think I will give the semi-transparent idea a try this weekend along with other ideas as to how to show mounted and unmounted devices.

I'm waiting to see the folders. Folders are of course the most visible part of any icon set.
