Windows 7: Folder icons

Folder icons

Hi all,

Not sure if I need to post this in this area or the WMC area. If this one is incorrect, please feel free to move it.

I am trying to get some custom icons made to use in MediaBrowser within WMC. I'm currently using Xzeners Icon pack for most of the folders, however he doesn't seem to have some that fit my particular need. I have my movies split into different folders, but instead of organizing them by genre, I split them into alphabetic "chunks". The folders are named as follows:

0 - 9
A - C
D - F
G - I
J - L
M - O
P - R
S - U
V - X
Y - Z

I have an folder icon named A - Z (which is attached) but would like to see if someone can modify it and create 10 different ones using the naming convention above.

Thanks for the help!
Mike

Hi Mike,
Here are a couple of examples I knocked up:-


The full set of ten png files can be downloaded HERE.
The full set of ten converted to icons can be downloaded HERE.
The individual images can be viewed/downloaded here. (I've even named the folder in your honour!!)
If you want anything tweaked (assuming these are OK!!), let me know, I've saved the original (made) psd file.

Enjoy!!

Just for those who are curious. The font used is "28 Days later", which doesn't include a ' - '.

A couple of suggestions Lio. Firstly, you might do better to start a new thread with your request with a nice descriptive title.
Secondly, if you could find an image that is even the remotest bit similar to what you are looking for you will no doubt be inundated with various designs from various people (me included!).

Thank so much.
I'm a graphic addicted, but for photos and big project .... the idea to make by myself icons is far away from me at the moment.
But for sure I'll open a new 3d with my "request" .. because I have so much hdds and partitions that I need to identify then by the icons.
For now I'm using this but they are very poor and don't ley me know the content of the drive.
Thanks a bunch

Well you could copy my image and post it and tell people what is "bad" about it (everything!). What you would prefer (the letter stood up, in front, behind etc etc.). I wouldn't be offended. I know it's bad!!
