    The top line gives it a sort of effect. No special need to be removed. To change the color I suggest you to add a new layer above the Bevel Layer and to fill it with the color u used for the Base. Then double click the Bevel Layer to access the Layer effect pop up window. Find the "Gradient" in the left menu, double click (ou just click I don't remember I'm so used to it) on the gradient stripe and then adjust to your liking . TIP : the middle (which gives an highlight effect) shouldn't really be lighter than the base. But only a bit darker.

    EIT : I don't what you've done but the bevel is all gone now. It's like you added a new layer shaped after the bevel but disabled the bevel layer. Clip your layer to the bevel layer (right click > add clipping mask)

    I would remove that line at the top and color the bezel accordingly. Otherwise looks good.

    Oh, I don't know that I agree. I'm not a graphics guy at all. I'm a systems engineer by day and a musician at night. I just know a couple tricks.

    I took the first good size icon I found on Google, dropped it into Photoshop, I copied the MMA and pasted them into another layer. I did an Inner Shadow and a Bevel and Emboss. I tweaked them a little here and there and when it looked good, I merged visible to prevent the layer effects from being lost. Then I resized it to fit the Jaku template. Aligned it, copied the layer and dropped it in between the base and the bevel and created a clipping mask.

    I've attached what it should look like.

    Another really nice icon,thank you!

    I have used Suave and then Sauve HD theme (Love clean and simple) for the last 2/3 years and never came accross anything that remotely made me want to change theme,then I came accross Jaku and within 5 minutes of seeing it I bought it and started changing all the icons for my apps.
    The level of detail on these icons is incredible!
    I want to say a big thank you to the creator (Lokheed) and to all you guys who take the time and effort to make these excellent extra icons like the Skyfire one above.
    I have to say that this is the first time I look at icons and think i'm gonna get that app because the icon is so nice!
    Sure it's supposed to be round the other way!!

    Anyway just had to say thanks guys as I am so chuffed with this theme.

    Cheers Jono.

    I can dig it.... Have a pleasant night then. By the way, this shot accounts for the total of the trickery I used on the icon.

    did you create the Layer2 and add those features?

    Yes indeed, he did. But I do not recommand using those features anytime you want to make a bevel for example. Those are premade effects. And like everything that is prebuilt/made it shall be used in specific circumstances to start or enhance an effect you want to create.

    BTW, can anyone tell me what's a "WIP" ?

    Actually, what that shot was is a totally different instance. That was the image I worked up BEFORE dropping it into the template and I used the template as designed. Look up a few posts and you'll see what the layout should look like to create the icon properly.

    I would appreciate it VERY much
