BTW, how did you get the border?
Oh, i think you put stoke on the orb, quick select it, add new layer, fill in selection, disable stroke on orb, then rub out what you need on the layer with the border

Nope I stole the Vista Orb png from the the Vista msstyles and then converted to a bmp for Windows 7.
Lol!


Why didn't I think of that...

Here's some "Footy" start orbs I made if anyone wants them - Soz I haven't had chance to convert them to the finished bmp's, but the individual png's are attached if you want to create your own, or just ask in here and I'm sure someone could help out

I managed to get a spare 1/2 hour to convert them to bmp if anyone still wants them .... (haven't had chance to test them though, hope they are ok)

Could someone make me a mario themed start button that could match my desktop?

PS notice how my shutdown, restart and logoff buttons in the rocketdock match the wallpaper!
