edit: April 2007, Updated camera icon and used curves to achieve a cohesive colour across all icons.

the file is also available on

and versiontracker: [link]

edit: feb 13th, 2007, rewrote & updated readme to include credits and clarify instructions.

Iiro [iiroku.deviantart.com] icon inspiration and front row folder icon. [link]
Lokheed [lokheed.deviantart.com] icon inspiration

edit: feb. 12th 2007, minor change to the DVD icon to fix the drop shadow. updated the .zip file to reflect changes.

windows version of the icons (.ico) can be found here: [link] in the massive media icons set.

I've had some icons I really love that I've been using for my iLife apps, iPhoto/iTunes/GarageBand etc. and I thought wouldn't it be cool if I made a skin for Front Row with them! Inspiration came from [link] and [link]

To install this skin you don't need any other software. Just drag and drop into the alias folder included in the file. I've also included backup icons in the event you want to revert to its virgin state. Read me file explains how to do the install. VERY very easy.

don't forget to log out and log back in for the changes to take effect!

Wow, very nice.

Now, I have to ask you something, do you mind me using the camcorder icon included in this pack for a mockup of a website? The picture would stay on dA and would only be for fun. I'd credit you fully in the description. It's just I've been looking everywhere for a high quality picture of a video camera, and this seems perfect.

I'm just wondering, will this work on the Front Row version where they show the sides of each icon instead of these 4 rotating?

unknown, not tested on the newer version

Very nice. Do you have the .icns files so that we can use them on the apps themselves?
MugenB16's avatar
