HB PC/Mac Icons Sets

Icon versions of croissants and fishbones, etc.
  [vote for,

I might like to download an icon version of the HB logo to use for my shortcut bar on my toolbar. Perhaps people might like to download the half-croissant, full-croissant, half-fishbone, and full-fishbone icons as well. The crazy fish on a plate icon (visible today in place of the usual half croissant on a plate) might be fun to include as well.

I'm sure this isn't difficult to do, but I don't have the tools. Anybody want to give it a shot?

A great source for Mac icons and the makers of icon builder which allows you to create icons through Photoshop 7. [madradish, Oct 17 2004]

       Hmm... maybe later...

       Post it online and provide us all with a linky-poo?

       This is a really nice idea Sarenka. I used to make icons, I'll give this a go when I have more time.

       No icons yet? Boy, this group must actually be working these days!

       All talk and no action...

       You would prefer a half-assed job be done?

       Has anybody been working on these?

       Windows, at least, will let you use any old bitmap as an icon. Save the image you want as a bitmap, hit 'change icon...' on the properties tab of your shortcut and browse to the image file.   

       You might want to check with jutta before doing anything like making an HB icon package available, since the images are hers.

       [jutta], may we please? Or if you'd like to create them and post them for us, that would be nice, too.

       I have been working on them a little bit. I'm still trying to get adequate editing tools for various OSs. If you want to try it, there is a neat Photoshop filter that generates .ico files. Unfortunately you require Photoshop 7.   

       I've provided a link if anyone wants to check it out.

       I have a file that contains several crappy HB logos - the favicon croissant is the only one that comes out well. The others are the croissant you see in the top left of the screen, the special top-left logos there have been over the years (hb.gif, hc.gif, hh.gif, hf.gif, hp.gif) as well as all the combinations of voting logos (croissants and fishbones).   

       It only works in Windows, as far as I know, but if you want it email me at the address on my user page, and I will send it as one .dll file.   

       If anyone knows a good (free) file-hosting site, please tell me.

       You could get yourself a Yahoo! briefcase, they are free and I am pretty sure you can share your files with others.

       You can't share your files with anyone, you have to specify who to allow.   

       <wide-eyed cute pleading face>Can I put it on your site, [pooduck]? Please???</wide-eyed cute pleading face>
