Nice job Pix0r! Ok stupid question here on my part, what do you use the folder icons for in Butler?

Are they available for donwload somewhere? They look really nice.

step6: click "image>adjustments>brightness & contrast". for brightness type in "+16"
step7: use this image in a theme as "menubar fill" and enjoy! (the menubar caps require no color correction so i hope you can figure it out on your own).
I tried following that, could you please explain Step 7 a bit clearer. I am not sure exactly where I put this file, trying to edit FreshSnow.

It's where you paste it into themepark..you have to decomplie with gui kitty then open extras in themepark..and you paste your new part of the desktop pic you cut out into menu bar fill(i think it's like #2030 or around there). then it will say it does not scale correctly..choose scale other images to fit, not scale new image...then you need to do the same thing for the root caps 12x22 pxl pic...then recompile with gui kitty for your new modded theme.

Just highlight the left graphic, not the mask and select "Scale other images."

Hmm, it was up yesterday. If you turn your Google image filters on and search her name, you should be able to find the DTP. If you don't turn on the filters, you'll likely find it, but among more... interesting photos of her.

You'll have to search for the wall like I did. I didn't keep the original image. The truck is there in the portfolio section but it's not a released OS X icon. I had to cut it out of a preview image so I can't share that as well.

that depends on what 'mods' are.. I guess a new thread would be your best bet since this is from desktop screenshots. Posting something in here would also make it difficult to search for later ..

Searching is only open to suscribers though... I tried looking last night there and it was just sooo slow. Either the server was suffering badly or Safari doesnt like the site. Oh well, its a cool wall.

By search, I meant lumbering through the 1000's of images till you come across it......like I did. Subscribing isn't worth the extra 5 bytes of bandwidth you'd get.

a neat trick to finding something on www.deviantart.com without subscribing:

type in Google: "someimagefile site:deviantart.com" lose the quotes.

works for a number of other sites aswell.

Maybe it's an oldie !?

The trick works if you know the name of the image

Haha, ok, obviously didnt see that cause I searched through the whole thing for about an hour and didnt find it. I did find a bunch of risque stuff (probably because I put it on sort by downloads)
