Leopard GTD Icons v1

By fruitycube
60 Favourites
Here is a set of 4 icons for OS X Leopard which are perfectly suited for the GTD ethos. They each come in 4 different sizes (512,128,32 and 16) and come in a variety of filetypes (PNG, ICNS and PICT Resource file).

These icons can be used on personal and work computers, but cannot be sold unless heavily modified.

Please let me know how I can improve these, different symbols etc. ^_^

I love this idea and want to use the icons. However, when I get info for them the icon appears as a generic png icon. Any suggestions?

I always liked leopard folders and additional ones are even more welcome !
Thankyou for these folders. They are god-damn useful .You've put in real hardwork. :+fav:

You could create folders with hp, apple, MS office logo. There is another set of about 200 extra leopard icons in myssynen 's gallery on deviantart. There are not high-res and you could make those symbol folders in high resolution icons

wow! great icons!

it would be really fantastic, if you tell us, how you did these icons. actually a tutorial video is not necessary. a simple step by step description with a few screenshots would be enough for me =D

I might produce a video tutorial in the future. At the moment I don't have the time or resources (microphone etc.) to make one.

All I can suggest right now is to play around with the layer effects I mentioned earlier.

where did you get the original leopard folder in 512x512?
fruitycube's avatar
1. Open finder and switch to "Cover Flow" mode
2. Browse around until you can see a normal folder showing in cover flow
3. Right click on the selected folder on the list below cover flow, and select "Get Info"
4. In the Get Info window, click on the small icon in the top left (it will glow blue) and press Command+C on your keyboard
5. Open Preview and press Command+N (You should see all the different icons for the blank folder.
6. Select the huge 512x512 one and go to "File" -> "Save as" in the menu bar, and save it as whatever you like.
7. You're done! ^_^

Hope that helps.

Thank you! ^_^

The symbols were created as paths in Illustrator/any vector app and imported into Photoshop. I then used a variety of layer effects (Drop shadow, emboss, color overlay, etc) to achieve the shading and depressed look. It took ages to get it to look the same as the original Apple icons!
