I feel so free now. On your screen the icons stand � perspectivly � in the center of the glass. But my icons stand in the front, as if they would fall over next second. So I guess the effect on your screenshot comes with the sep.png, but I don�t understand your explanation very well. I have an icon, let�s say D. Arnaez� beautiful explorer icon. It�s 256 px. The sep.png is 196 px. That doesn�t fit ...? Or do I something wrong?

I was referring to a regular size icon which is usually 128px x 128px so just open the blank png file included in photoshop and place your 128x128 png file on top of it and save it as a new png icon resulting in a smaller picture without loosing graphic quality. If you have any questions post your email and I will send you a sample...

LV13, First you must have Object Dock Installed, then unzip the folder and you should find two themes one Tempered Glass OD which is what you need. The Tempered Glass RK is for people that uses RK launcher Dock. Anyhow place the TG OD folder in the backgrounds folder and then just select it from the dock properties menu... let me know if you need more help...

Alpha, very glad you have use for it...

These round glass icons just blow me away sitting there on the glass shelf. They are easily the most stunning things I have seen in a long time. OK, here's my problem. I don't have Photo Shop. My graphics program is Paint Shop Pro X. It has a png file but when I insert your sep png it is not round. In fact all I get is a blank square. I can paste another png into it but I just end up with a colored square. Does Photo Shop have something that automatically creates a round shape like yours? And if your sep png is blank then where does the slightly dark base inside the glass come from? And the thin dark line along the top of the glass? I really want this effect and will get a copy of Photo Shop if need be. Incidentely, the link to the icons used isn't working at this moment. Thanks for any help and I'll be watching to see what your next work is. Very impressive.

Thank you Sea Hourse and thomassen for the nice comments....

Sea Hourse, the whole purpose of what I explained above in the tutorial is to make the icons (png files) small enough to make them look their best on the tray no matter what program you use. You can also use Icon Developer by Stardock to make tehm small enough for them to look good. If you want me to save you the job I can send you the icons so just post your address and you will see by yourself what Im talking about... regards
