In case of 24x24, they will be retouched with Gimp. More icons will come.Some remarks (I know I'm a pest):
It was an attempt to reproduce the current menu-editor icons available on FC6.1. I don't like the menu editor icon at all. If you don't know it's a menu editor, you won't guess : the menu part is difficult to distinguish, and the pen is associated with writing text, not composing menus. I'd rework the menu bit and remove the pen. Probably taking something like the classic "add line in a table" icon as base. Right now at fist sight it looks like yet another office/text editor icon.
I will rework it.
Ah ah. you use Microsoft Vista reference. =-OGenerally speaking the isometric perspective echo chose makes this kind of icon difficult to create, since it reduces the effective space and slants common symbols. It works with 3d objects but not with 2d objects and pictograms (Note: I'm typically using >= 100 dpi screens, and they'll only get more common now Vista lifted the old 96dpi windows resolution clamping. That means I may see have somewhat smaller pixels than you, with smaller icons)
I will take account about the dpi in the future.
I am considering using a Globe instead of CD. And yes, the grey box is a PC tower. Be in mind it is just a draft.2. I'd remove the CD & gray box on the second one (no idea if it's supposed to be a PC tower case or a CD+manual box). The main installation/update method is network nowadays, and almost no one gets his Linux software in cardboard boxes. Maybe a pile of greyed-out closed packages with one colorful open package in the foreground would work better.
