    Customize App Icons?

    Advertisement



    Okay, so I'm sure I'm not the first to notice if you get a theme that has icons themed as well, the other apps icons don't match the theme. Example, I got the matrix theme, everything is green except for the yellow rooster game sign. Or except for the mediaPlayer app.

    Is there a way to get the icons for these add on apps to customize them as well??

    sure, just create small icons(same resolution) like the ones in plazmic using photoshop. If you havent noticed yet, hovering above the icons reveals their resolution.

    Apply a filter to them or an effect to give it that matrix feel. Make one for regular and another for focus, then bring them back to plazmic once you're done in photoshop.

    To repeat and possibly clarify and summarize. Most third party software applications include their own Icons. You can not replace those icons.There is a default Application icon that can be replaced, but it is only used if the application does not include an Icon.

    Hope this helps.

    So just to make sure we are on the same page. There would be no way for me to get a copy of the icon off / out the app. And adjust the colors to match any given theme?

    The developer of the app creates the icon. I do not know how, nor why, nor when, where or who... lol

    But I do know that they are the only ones that can change the icon.

    Photoshop CS3 pretty much rocks for making icons. I finished a set of South Park Icons but I can't post them until I get to Stack Level 2. So much for cutting down the spam.
