is there a reversed set of icons that are black instead of the white snow icon set. i like the shape and style, but i would prefer them to be black. or is there a way i could go in and reverse them myself? what program would i have to use? thanks...

I figured since Jet Black was going to be released soon, i would need some kinda cool black icons. Snow is hella sweet, but i want to reverse them...

Convert all the icons to .png using Icon2PNG, then use GraphicConverter to inverse the colors (batch-convert them), and then reconvert them back to icons using Pic2Icon. You might have to use ImagePreUnMultiplier before doing that to fix the transparency mask.

Hope this helps...

(Edit) Here's one I did real quick



Just inversing the image gets rid of the shiny look tho... That might not be what you're aiming for

You can get Icon2PNG here

NetworkShadow, I wasn't about to redistribute any modded icons... Showed that just as a proof of concept.

Only works for the folders and not for their colored badges, they will look terrible... but yeah I agree we could use a high quality black icon set to go with all these cool black themes...maybe I will make a one if I can find the time...

You're right Kovacs, this is just a quick 'n dirty way of inversing the icons... never said it would look spiffy or anything

Omega will come with a full iconset, maybe it will go well with other dark themes?
