Just wanted to say Thank you for the Tutorial. I was able to create the package Straight away using this tutorial AFTER I used another on ICON creation with GIMP. Creating a multi-resolution favicon including transparency with the GIMP | Egressive
The above link details the steps to making multi-layered, transparent Icons for use for another purpose. Use that tutorial with this post and you can NOT fail.
I do have a question about the tutorial:
Why when we are being shown the way to create a DESKTOP replacement do you suddenly change to the Wireless Card to show obtaining the HARDWARE ID? Is it because that step doesn't actually work for the desktop? I went through the properties and found the SYSTEM DEVICE and it does not have a HEX ID like other devices.
Anyway, it doesn't matter, I was just curious.
Thanks again for taking the time to make this tutorial. Does anyone have a good method of creating a 256 x 256 32B image and then getting a utility to save it down as the reduced sizes required in a batch format? I mean some process or porgram? Can GIMP be configured to export to multiple sizes and color depths required by the Metedata Authoring Wizard?
