No need to apologise, it was just a bit of constructive criticism..

Just a little tip though: if you want to take an image that already has a black background and add a nice smooth alpha layer, (Note: I use PhotoShop) switch to the "Channels" tab and ctrl+click on the RGB preview. Instead of selecting the contents of the layer (as this does in the "Layers" tab), this then selects the colours in the layer, and the selection edge fades according to the intensity of tho colour. Hope that helps a bit.

@MynameisColeB
Can you make a custom icons pack which includes icons and other things from Assassins Creed? Or atleast, a start menu orb, consisting of a black circle (with glass effect) with the Assassins creed's 'A' logo on it? I'd be very grateful to you.
Edit: I just read the first page and not sure whether to request here or not. Pls let me know if i breached any rule. I'll correct it.
