    You need an image program to take the icons and make them translucent.

    Its really simple. I use Photoshop and I make the icons 20% opaque. That is for slightly visable, anything lower, 15%, 10% makes them invisable. If you cant do this yourself maybe you could email me the icons, and I could make them transparent for you. I wouldnt mind.

    Re: Can someone help !!!

    Here is a really quick and easy way to do it yourself in photshop.

    Open image in photoshop
    In the layers panel set the opacity to whatever percent you wish
    Save file as...
    Done.

    I still dont mind doing this but you have heard the saying.... Feed a man a fish he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish he will eat for a lifetime.

    PS, you arent an idiot!

    What version of Photoshop do you have? There should be what's called in PS as "Palette Bin" on the right side of the PS window. Look for Layers there. In it is block called opacity with a default of 100%. Open the Icon image you want to make translucient or transparent and change the opacity level until it looks the way you want. Make sure the background layer you are using is transparent. That's set when you set up a new image from scratch.

    Hope this helps
