My first Icon package

Vista Part

Tuesday, September 4, 2007 by Quentin94 | Discussion: Skinning



Hi, This is my first icon package, i made it to match on XP and Vista, the thing is that i have XP so i can tested it in it but i haven't Vista so i can't tested it...
Well i need help to figure out some mistakes. It seems from the comment #2 that

They don't work to well on Vista. With the 256(Large icons) turned on they show up as 48px. Just to let you know.


So i would like to know how fix that and to know if the live folder look right or not.

I made each Png in a folder, opened icondevelopper File/Batch Processing/Create icons from images files in a folder and then select all formats for XP, 256 colors and 16,7M colors with resample images "Lanczos3".
After i opened Iconpackager View/Suite editor and drag and drop the icon files on each icons and save as "Arileen iconpack". I applied it and package it by right click on the preview.

Well any help is welcome

There the link to the Package

In addition, (If i can figure out the vista part) if someone can give me a screenshot of the original vista control panel icons (via iconpackager) i could make the icons for it too in future

thanks Bilbo i'm not sure that's a software problem but more a mistake made by me in building it. If it's a software problem i'll give a try to Axialis

There is a dif - but not too much so I figure it is the program and the formats you used that is cause of the problem. Here is a screenie of what I saw ...
