Aero Tiles backgrounds

I like these, rabidrobot. I like the looks of them very much. But my icons that I have on my dock don't quite fit into each tile. The icons I use are all 128 ico files. Did you change the size of your icons to fit the tiles? Or is there a way to resize the tiled background itself?

Great work, dude!!! Thank you so much for to use my works for this new background dock.

D. Arnaez, I'm glad you approve - those icons make anything around them look better!

47songs, any png image should be resized by ObjectDock to fit "within" the tiles. Unfortunately there is no way, as far as i know, to set an outside border margin with tiled backgrounds, meaning png images which use their entire canvas will use the entire tile area. I did not resize the images used in the preview; they are just well designed with a bit of border on some edges, and plenty of transparent area.. Are you seeing images extend beyond the apparent edge, like the left and bottom sides of the Configure Dock icon in the preview? This is the result of the icon image extending to the very edge of its canvas and also the fact that the aero tiles all have about 3 pixels of "glow" outside each edge. So, while I totally know where you're coming from, I am afraid my only advice is to look for icons that have enough transparent area and are perhaps even made with a few pixels border in their canvas.

I usually use ico images in my docks and pngs on my desktop. I could actually resize them to fit, but I use many different styles of icons from various artists. Some fit better than others. I think what I was referring to most was the borders. The icons do fit within the entire tile. I guess I thought it would be nice if all the icons could fit within the light gray border itself. Regardless, I'll keep the the icons the way they are and still use your background. It really is a great look!
