Purple Windows 7 Folders by Drawder Purple Windows 7 Folders by Drawder
This is the second Icon I submit so far... I think I improved ever since my Text Edit Icon last time. This time I was just looking for a better looking folder for my laptop, and then I suddenly started working in my own (as always, never could find an icon good enough, and as they say: If you want a job well done, you gotta do it yourself!).
This Icons are based in Windows 7 Folder Default icons.
I wanted to submit it last night, but I though not many people would get the chance to see it since everyone would be asleep, so I'm submitting it this morning.
Use these non-commercially.

The icons come in .ICO format and in .PNG format in:

256x256 px
128x128 px
64x64 px
48x48 px
32x32 px
16x16 px

And again, I still haven't found (and I haven't looked, lol) for a way to make em' into Mac icons, so please anyone who knows about icons, could anyone tell me how can I achieve this?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------... I updated these icons, and I've included the folder separated in two, so it can be used in Live Folders (using a good icon program, this means you can change the default folder icons of your computer and still have the thumbnail feature available with these new icons). Also a screen shot of my desktop with windows showing how it looks in action!.
Check it out!

I started working in this icon, and I have started changing it to be in 12 different colors. Thanks to the commission of ~foxxyn8 [link]

You can go to my gallery, or simply click on the links below:

-[link] RED
-[link] ORANGE
-[link] YELLOW
-[link] GREEN
-[link] BLUE
-[link] DARK BLUE
-[link] PURPLE (Original One)
-[link] VIOLET
-[link] PINK
-[link] BROWN
-[link] BLACK
-[link] WHITE

Use these non-commercially.
If there's no link, it's because I haven't work on it yet, but it will soon arrive.

I'm still attempting to make this to be used in MAC systems too, but I really haven't got much time to do this, between school and work :S I will do it eventually.

Anyway, hope you like it, and if you like it and download it, at least leave me a comment letting me know what you think, I like reading comments so I can improve myself, so please at least say Thanks (courtesy should always be a first).

Well, til' next time! :)

Archarachne Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
Your works are wonderful.
I have already set your icons up on my PC.

I just wonder: would it be possible for you to add a ZIP icon?
Drawder Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
Funny enough, I altered this zip icon to meet my likes, but I never uploaded it because it was not completely my work... I might upload it, but, I have to see...
Archarachne Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012
Oh, that would be wonderful :)

I'll be watchin your profile then. :)

Drawder Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012
Well, I use Stardock Iconpackager. It's a 3rd party program that allows you to change icons for almost any file in your system. Google it :)

Hi. Before all, thanks for sharing your very nice icons.
But I have a problem about the installation. I replaced my classical icons whin yours thanks to icon package, I saw them in my explorer, but after a short time, they are replaced by the initial ones.
I tried also with Tuneup Styler, same result : your icons stay a moment, but are quickly replaced by the original one.

Any idea to help me?
Drawder Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011
I really have no idea what the problem might be. I use Stardock IconPackager, and if you use a program to do so, then it's not really my icon, but the program itself.
I'm no expert in computer customization, I wish I could help more :/

Thanks for your support :)
