Hi Arc,

Those look great.

Would you be able to squash these down orb.zip so they are 90 width x 96 height bit depth 24 bitmap ?

Thanks if you can.

Hon'ble SIW2 Sir,
I would be lucky if I get a chance to serve you. In the current situation, I am not able to understand properly what I am to do (maybe it is out of nervousness that the offer is from you ). Am I to resize individual orbs, or the entire image itself ? I think it would be easy for me if the purpose is known to me .

Would you be kind enough to inform me the details, and please dont take my dumbness otherwise, it is somehow nervousness . If the entire image is resized to 90x96, it looks horrible.

Thank you Arc,

I see what you mean.

Maybe it would work better if the circular orbs were made into oblongs ?

I am trying to replace this start.zip- the entire green oblong to be replaced by an oblong version of the start orb, if that makes sense.

If it is an orb, there is this unfortunate effect around it : Custom Start Menu Button Collection-orbeffect.jpg

Thank you sir. I understood this time. But There is an unfortunate problem.

Bitmaps 6801, 6805 and 6809 are of 54x162 pixels . I have no idea how can I apply a 90x96 pixels bitmap as my start button. When I applied the one you supplied, I got it

Still, I am trying .
