18 October, 2010

It's been two years since Library Icons 2nd Ed. came out. This is, of course, too long, but things came up as they so often do. This release includes 918 icons in three different formats (Windows, PNG, and OS X), supporting the maximum resolution of Windows (256×256) and Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6 (512×512). The PNG release is also 512×512. There are also prepared packages for Gnome and GTK, with a KDE version coming soon.

As always, if you create something with these icons, please let me know! More details about usage are on the PNG release's download page.

Downloading

Mac OS X Version

Once upon a time! It's definitely starting to show a bit of age, though. Most of the work pre-dates the mobile revolution.

Samantha's icons are a joy. She inspired me to start creating icons of my own. How she found the time to do so many is beyond me. I make mine with Photoshop and I'd love to know how you made yours and what your processes/methods were. Every designer does things his or her own way. I know my own way of doing things but it is always good to learn from others. That way inspiration lies...

Well, it helps that I was just out of high school when I made most of them. I had an inordinate amount of free time at the time.

My process is actually pretty much identical to yours; I think I've just had more experience at selecting base images and manipulating layer styles. You can see some examples of how I built the paper icons here.

I appreciate the response. You have certainly had more experience, I think in total you created close to a 1,000 icons. I am just tinkering!

I see that you start with an image that is a lot larger than any of mine. You put a great amount of detail into each icon, probably something I only do with the widgets. The icons, to me are something I bang out when I have a function that needs to be filled with an appropriate image. I am a tadge impatient and have a family of three so I cannot spend as much time on them as you have done...

When it comes to the widgets though I do tend to spend a lot more time polishing them. Have you tried any of them? Are they your sort of thing?

The 512x512 resolution is the maximum used by Mac OS X 10.5 and later. It makes it a lot easier to have fine control over glows and bevels, although consequentially some of my icons look worse at normal desktop sizes as a result.

I gave up on desktop widgets a long time ago, I'm afraid. These days I use a much more minimalist interface where possible.

These icons are very nice. Would it be okay to use them in a learning management system for a higher education course? I can't give you a link to the course as it is only accessible by enrolled students and their user ID login.

Can't really say no to something that's (effectively) private! I would like to see a screenshot, though, if that's possible, just for my own ego's sake.

Thank you. If/when we use any of the icons in a course I will send you a screenshot.

This would go so perfectly with my desktop. Would it be alright if I attempted to port this to a Linux icon theme? :)

Incidentally, :icongustavwilhelm: already took a pretty good stab at a Gnome set. I think he was OK with me/other people adding to it, so you may want to start from it rather than from scratch.

Hey, great! A starting base would be wonderful, at the moment I was just thinking of overwriting a copy of an existing theme for a conversion, but this may make things much easier!

Cheers! :)

Is there any chance you have the Misc. Customize PG-13 with just the bookmark part? Was wanting to use it as a Dock shortcut. Unfortunately my skills with Photoshop are abysmal. Great icon pack btw~
