    graphics request

    Hi , not sure if I should be asking this here ... and I should know !

    but I was wondering if any graphics gurus could create a set of `icons` (jpg or gifs) for use in upcoming phpdev version

    you would get sod all in return except a big thankyou and a credit (which would appear in all future phpdev versions 1/4 million dloads to data (according to sourceforge)) ~

    basics are I need an icon set that conveys graphically (so far)

    MySQL adminstration

    'Set root password'
    'Add new User'
    'Add new Database'
    'Add user to database'
    'Edit User Privileges'


    Apache / htaccess

    'Add new user'
    Add new group'
    'Password protect a file'
    'Password protect a folder'

    Apache

    'add/edit/delete virtual host'
    'edit folder permissions'
    'edit httpd.conf'

    PHP

    'enable php module'
    'disable php module'
    'change active php version'
    'enable php-gtk run from browser'

    General

    'add new project'
    'edit project'
    'delete project'


    errr there are others planned and maybes , but those are the general ones.
    all will have text links as well better describing the process as I appreciate there is only so much an icon can convey.

    I can grab icons off the web etc but a custom set would be really really really really ... etc ! nice.

    don't ask for much do I ?

    not much help I know ... I dont really mind to be honest , I mean I like XP or KDE/Gnome style 3d , but I dont really mind as long as they are part of a 'set' ?

    Ok. I am on a MAC so I have no idea about XP or KDE/Gnome. 3D I get.

    I use Iconograper so I can make you a whole set of Icons.

    I'll break out the sketch pad and see what comes out.

    >>MotherNatrsSon Ok. I am on a MAC so I have no idea about XP or KDE/Gnome. 3D I get.

    just about to have a go .. cos you a mac user .. then realised how daft that would be

    >>I use Iconograper so I can make you a whole set of Icons.


    >> any particular size?(kb or dimesions)

    no preference , whatever works for you , bigger is better of course as I can always scale down , but again beggars cant be choosers

    >>I'll break out the sketch pad and see what comes out.



    really appreciate you having a looksee for me !

    Iconographer can create all the icons in all sets MNS -- it'll do Mac OS X, Mac OS 9, Windows XP and older -- their tutorials on their website (in your help menu) should give you the full info about how to save which one. Incidentally, a neat trick for Mac:

    You can create a picture in photoshop, select all and copy it -- find a folder or something somewhere and hit apple+I (to 'Get Info'). In the top left Icon, click on it and press ctrl+V... it'll let you paste your image in, and you've created a quick icon.

    ...but I don't think that works so well for PC. A good resource is also http://www.iconfactory.com/ -- they have tips, tutorials, programs, etc...

    just about to have a go .. cos you a mac user .. then realised how daft that would be

    Yes, I know it can make Icons for any system...LOL Bet you can't do that on a pc though.

    Have you seen the Photoshop actions for Iconographer? They are in the "goodies" folder and work great!

    So I guess the question now is what platform does firepages need? All wndoze?

    A "complete" set in Iconographer is a total of sizes ranging from a huge 32bit, 8bit, 4bit down to a small 1 bit . 48px x48px down to 16px by 12px All in one icon file. And if you need a thumbnail as well.

    MACs RULE!!! LOL

    Needs to be more advanced, like an icon or a button. Check out http://www.iconfactory.com/ to see some of their work.

    Yeah I realize that but without some guidance about "if" that is what he wants, I'm only going so far. It will be 3-D as well when finished. You know how picky clients are.

    I made these 256px x 256px so they will proportionally reduce in size. At 32px x 32px they are hard to read.

    Hi , sorry I am not being very helpful in my descriptions ... truth is I am not sure myelf what I want

    but I was thinking more Iconic .. eg a padlock for the security stuff , err or maybe a castle , perhaps MSN like peeps for the user stuff but all with a common theme (I like the flames by the way)

    so when I said Icons I meant `iconic` they will mostly end up as images to give the user a hint of what the button / link will do , I know that you cant convey say 'edit user privileges' in an image as such but perhaps a hint ? remember also that MySQL & PHP & Apache have thier own icons (dolphin , elephant & feather) which could be incorporated but perhaps be made to look as part of a set

    Its a big ask I know & peeps get paid lots of $$ for this stuff .. so .sorry if I am confusing anyone

    Whackaxe , sorry I did not see you post there earlier , size does not matter but bigger means I can scale , the images posted by MotherNatrsSon for instance would be as big as they would ever need to be.
