could you use the image above from Silurian, but blue without ring on the outside of the light.
I don't have any picture editing software so I would do it myself but i can't

How on earth do you get that red effect in blue? How can you get rid of the boarder?

Oh dear!

I use photoshop at school and this is from memory : go to Image, Adjustments, then Color Balance. Put Magenta to the left and blue to the right. I think that is how you do it

All i did was draw a circle using the elliptical marquee tool while holding shift around the section i wanted then right click the selection and select layer via cut, that leaves me with what i want on a new layer.

Then add a hue & saturation layer above your orb layer, then move the hue slider for your colour!!

Thats it!!

I liked the skull orb but wanted to change the colors and the non-hover state so i edited it real fast to go with a theme i might be doing..

so since i did thought i would share it like that also.

I can't get the Ultimate Icons from the 1st post (Yes, the 1st!) to work. I've installed and re-booted, what do I do now?

I've already searched, but I didn't find anything any answer for my problem.

Thanks for any answers that may work!
