Curious but is there an official Windows 7 and SevenForums Theme? I think an Official theme would be stellar! I wanna rock a bad a** SevenForums theme so I can put it on my school computer and advertise more. My teacher's going to require all the students to join SF.com.

I don't know if you are meaning to, but you come across as rude and demanding, people have tried to help and there is not a word of thanks only more harsh demands, plus I don't know if you realize but the image has to be a Bitmap which doesn't use transparency so it will be impossible to do that.

The black is represented as being transparent in the Bitmap for the start orb anyway so maybe you should try it before complaining, actually just stop complaining, that would be even better.

Wow... I was thinking the same exact thing.

I actually like those orbs, they're pretty sweet. Thanks, now to figure out how to use them!

A white Windows flag, with a Glass/Transparent orb. Try not to make the flag silverish/shiny.
Cam, it would help if you had a picture of the White Flag and it will need a background behind it, maybe a solid color.

Well i have to agree with MrGRiM, i think the tone is uncalled for, i also think that TheBull has done a great good job with limited information.

You will also note that i did mention that you needed a solid background our it would not work. Now if you knew how to create your own orb, you would have known that, so i suggest you brush up on your manners and photo-shop.

cheers

I wasn't even going to comment on this! But I found the perfect solution for you. Go and buy a nice transparent marble and stick it on your monitor!

(Manners you can't buy though!)
