    I've used gimp. and its ok, same thing with some others. like, paint.net, and artweaver. But once you get used to photoshop the alternatives are crap. But since you dont have photoshop, They'll be fine

    I suggest you try Gimp

    its ok. well actually to make it easier, i think theres a template in the iNFINITY folder. navigate to the folder and then go into Images/Apps. there should be a file called icon-template.psd. I'm not 100% sure if its included in the folder though. If it is then you can just drag your icon into it and it will be the new icon. If the template isn't there, tell me and il send it

    edit: Oops, were you already referencing the template? If so, yeah thats all you have to do to make a new icon

    isnt there a layer on the psd that is a folder? when you drag the image onto the psdyou need to move the image layer down beneath the frame

    if you want, send me the picture you want to use, and il put the picture into the psd the way its supposed to be, and il send it to you so you know how to do the rest

    ok. well which icon do you want to replace?

    Trying to make a Skype icon to start with.Attachment 531039
    ok. I made an icon using that image, but i dont like the way it looks at all. So i also made an alternative which looks much better in my opinion. But you are free to choose which you like. And here is also the template. The template has a layer group where you place the images. It automatically hides the edges so that it doesnt cover the frame.
    [Released] iNFINITY HD-skype_alt.png[Released] iNFINITY HD-skype.png
    and download the modified psd here: icon-template_.psd

    Thank you! I wasn't applying the layer to the bottom. One last question how do I get rid of the image outside of the frame?

    Either you didn't place the layer inside the layer group (the layer shouldn't be at the very bottom. It should be inside a layer group. The layer group is like a folder where you can place multiple layers. It's all in the layers panel. Or however it is in Gimp), or Gimp doesn't support the mask I put in place to automatically remove everything that's not inside the frame. Try to put the image "inside" the group. If you can't, then I might have to just make you all your icons :P

    if you want celsius and not fahrenheit, go into the the infinity folder, and then go into ""widgets", and then into "htc", and then into"functions.js" and look for this url in the text : "http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?u=f&p". Change the "f" in the url to "c" so that it looks like this : "http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?u=c&p". That should give you celsius
    thank you

    Thank you for offering, but I am determined to make the icons myself. Just wish I knew someone who used GIMP to get me started.

    i just wanna know how u got that "widget" on the first page of the thread

    It's not a widget, it's a .swf I made in adobe flash. I embedded it using flash tags in the post. Quote the original post and look at the flash tags.
    [.flash=http://.] .quality= .width=x .height=x .[./flash.]

    remove the periods.

    Maybe I could make you one Sometime if you ever really wanted. But I have to agree, adobe does take a little to learn. But it has so many possibilities. I just hope flash doesn't die to soon, or else this skill will be useless :P
