Icon-A-Day, Icon # 66, User Program Group

One last fling for the "little people."

Icon 66 (User Program Group)

Yesterday we had the pleasure of making the "Program Group" folder. This makes today's icon very simple and gives us one last chance to use the "People" overlay that we originally made for the Admin folder.

Today's icon is another one of those icons that most people will never see. There are system administrators out there who see it every day, and beside, it is supported by IconPackager, so to do a complete pack we have to do it.
Step 1:

We shall start with a copy of yesterdays Program Group folder.

Step 2:

Now we copy the "People" from our Admin folder, and shrink them down a bit, also we remove the shadows and Reflections.

Step 3:

We lean the people up against the Explorer window. Then we copy our elements and make our reflection graphics.

Step 4:

Now we add a 
drop shadow. to the "People" and feather out the Reflection with the Interactive Transparency tool.


Finished Icon design.

Well that was simple; unfortunately we are running out of the simple folder icons, I am hoping to finally get around to the "Printer" folder tomorrow. See you then.

Hey mormegil,

I see that you post these icon tutorials every day, and though I don't use them (yet) I just wanted to drop a word of encouragement and thanks for all the effort that you are putting in to this. I'll get around to learning this stuff in the near future (college permitting) but to know that this info is here is an encouragement for me to pursue my studies and then learn to do icons and upwards. So once again, thanks for all this effort.

A soon to be beginner skinner. (iconographer?)
