One of the MacCentral guys posted a screen shot and the menu icon for WeatherPop had a yellow sun. All of the standard icons are varying shades of gray.<br><br>Decided to Show Package Content on that little devil and made copies of the originals to play around with. Kind of tough to do too much with such little images, but tomorrow morning I should have a bright yellow sunshine icon in the menu. Lookin' at the moon right now... not enough there to play with so I left it alone.<br><br>Anyway... I altered five of them and if they turn out okay I just might be willing to share... that is if anyone is interested. <br><br>Place sure has been quiet today...<br><br>
Here's a screen shot of the before and after shots. (I must be bored)<br><br>It's hard to tell exactly what they will look like in the menu with the white background and being so small. I've got a gray menu bar and they seem to have a bit of a drop shadow when they show up there.<br><br><br><br>The Foggy icon now has a small red light at the top and some definition to the shape of the lighthouse and a touch of yellow at the start of the beacon. <br><br><br><br>
Turns out they look a lot better in the above screen shot than they do in the menu. May try to spruce them up a bit over the weekend but as it stands right now... not what I was hoping for.<br><br>I'll post if I achieve success. <br><br>

Yeah - that post prompted me to do the same thing. Now I'm waiting for the weather to change so I can see the ones I colored (I didn't do them all...)<br><br>They don't look very good in their raw state - so it's disspointing to hear that they look even worse in the menu bar: I expected them to be better. But M3's screen shots at MC looked good. I wonder what the trick is?<br><br><br>deebee<br><br>
