Nice! That makes me want to mass-produce icons!

Too bad I don't use Photohshop. My graphic editor of choice is Fireworks.

Can Fireworks not open PSD files?

Fireworks can open PSD files. I'll give it a try if I have time. I just don't know if there are Photoshop-specific features in those pics.

If anything, I do have access to Photoshop (although I can't use it), so it won't be a big problem to me.

Thanks~

Another question, how do i change the effects on the text? I know it's a layer.
If i wanted an icon in this style for μTorrent..changing the text from Ae to μ is no problem, changing the Ae effects to μ is a problem.

Care to explain this to me ?

The bottom layer in the "Text" or "Symbol" groups, "Highlight", is a merged copy of all the text or symbol layers offset 1 pixel down masked to the same merged contents (not offset). Then, the "Background" group contains a separate layer for each icon size, masked to the size of the container with either the text or symbol for that specific size reversed out. Hope that makes sense.

Thank you, it makes sense indeed.
So there's no easy way to edit the 'effect' layer. Besides taking some photosop lessons on how to create the effects you use :)

No, unfortunately not. Releasing the template only came up after I'd finished the set, and by then all the icons had already been done like that.

Hi. Nice icons and thanks for supplying the .psd file. Silly question as I'm new to icon design but with this .psd - how can I manipulate the image contained inside the icon e.g. how can I remove the image and have just a blank background the same colour as the rest of the icon? So far I can remove the image but am left with an empty space the same shape as the removed image.

There are layer masks on the layers in the "Background" group. Removing them will solve your problem.
Hey, I'm having the exact same problem, but obviously because of my lack of knowledge on Photoshop, I really can't delete the image. Is there any change you could upload (or email me) a version of the template but without it?
Thanks a lot!
