    Yeah I have microsoft picture manager and paintshop. I am currently working on some icons using them (I hope mine come out looking as good though)

    Do you know of any Icon creator programs where I can just throw in an image and it edits it for me? What I'm having difficulty with is all my images have a white border/shading around them. I want to get rid of the white outside and just keep the actual image - I was hoping an icon program can help me with that.

    You can do exactly that with Paintshop. Open the icon and choose the effects browser. Go through there and find the proper setting. Its probably under lighting or something similar.

    Let me know if I can help.

    You need to use a Transparent Background and don't save them as jpg files as jpg doesn't support transparency. Use gif or png.

    hope this helps.

    You have a tip on how to make the background transparent? I've been searching for it with no luck.

    Re: theme goodies (lots of icons hooray)

    How to make transparent Icons is very dependent on the graphics editor you use for manipulation of your images. I don't have either Paintshop or MS Photo manager, so can't give specifics. I use Photoshop Elements and it has a feature in the New Image setup for setting the Background and one of the options is "transparent". It also has a background eraser, which can be used to clear out areas in a layer.

    Hope this helps
