*HEY, LISTEN* Says the glowing ball on your screen.
If any of you know how to batch resize a bunch of .pngs from 512 to 128, then convert them to a bunch of .ico files using the BASH command line, please drop me a line.
I know you can do it with the GIMP, but the MAN pages don't seem too helpful with this, and the forums are only slightly more illuminating.
Much thanks.
Still very much a work in progress.

This is my Syzygy pack, a complement to *chrfb's Ecqlipse set (see what I did there?).

Again, made with mac in mind, but most of these apps are cross platform anyways, and so are the .png icons.

Hit the download button for the .zip

So I guess I'm on Softpedia now? This might happen to just anyone with a "soft" computer accessory, but I'm still happy about it. : ) (that's mah happy face)

Thanks for all of your downloads and views!
Update Thu Aug 13 08:53:38 EDT 2009
Added some more icons, and the .zip now includes some .icns (mac icon files) unless it did before, in which case it now STILL includes some .icns files.

Also added a readme file.
Update Thu Aug 20 09:15:50 EDT 2009
Added some more icons, most notably is the whole iLife, iWork and Office:mac suite--just the program's icons, not any icons for files made with the program yet. We're up to about 150 or so. One of these days I'm going to make a nice text list of them all and add them here and in the keyword bit.
:new: Update Thu Sep 3 18:40:36 EDT 2009
-Why do I only update on Thursdays?
-Either way, I've updated the README file with a list of all the icons in this pack (minus those I've forgotten about)
-Also updated the preview picture up there.
-Also included more icons (yay) most notably a full icon replacement package for
-If you don't know how to make use of this new package, or any of the others before it (Quicktime, VLC, Illustrator, etc) Then ask a friend. I'll probably add install instructions in the next README update. Basically it involves right clicking on "/Applications/" selecting "show package contents" and then going to "contents/Resources/" and dumping the load in there. I'd make a backup of the existing "*.icns" files in there first, but that's your choice.

Photoscape has a very easy to use batch editor that can resize allong with other batch options.

This is beautiful, but I personally despise the Mac-flavored icons for MS Office.

Can someone make League of Legends icon?

I don't suppose you could create an XChat icon. I know in the original pack there's one for mIRC but I use XChat.

It's done in 5 minutes to convert the PNGs to *.ico files with Iconworkshop, I've done it for my personal collection, should I upload it for you?
Rapisho's avatar
I forget to say that theres an option to make the small resolutions, especially the 16px, more sharpen so that they fit better the original ecplise icons. So if you like the *.ico files I can upload also a new conversion of the *.icns files.

Hey. Can I ask you a favour/make a suggestion? I recently saw a windows 7 icon pack that had icons that were only A, B, C ... Z and 0,1,...9. I thought it was a very flexible system: if a program doesn't fit an existing icon, you can simply use one of the alphabets instead. Can you do something similar?

This is a great set of icons. Thanks! It looks like this GIMP script will allow you to convert and resize files from .png to .ico.
