Some more details:
-Perfect alpha bitmaps created!
-Orbs are resized to the proper deminsions required by explorer. 4 total
-Orb bio info like artist name and orb title are embedded into the images. This cannot be edited. I want all artists to get credit.
-Import/Export Orb sets. Sorry but all the start orbs floating around right now will not work with StartOrbz. There are simply too many badly created orbs out there. Too many "tricks" to make a bitmap with alpha channels. There is no need for any of that now. I thought long and hard about blocking out the old orbs. I simply had to do it in order to create a "standard". The original authors can redo them in seconds and redeploy them to everyone.
-Rating system. The more you apply an orb, the higher it gets rated. This is not changable by the user.
-Catergory system. This was created so users can easily manage there orbs and also make it easier to know what kinda orb your downloading...like those cool flag orbs!

More to come-
