That looks cool Arc pal ..... is there any chance that when an orb image is posted that a larger version of the orb is posted aswell as the correct size seems sometimes a bit small and difficult to see how the finished product might turn out eg. below

Hi Tabitha... Why don't you try to attach the image you want to your post? Just click the 'Manage Attachments' button in 'Additional Options' when you're typing a new post entry and you'll be able to upload it..

As you've got it there, I can't see any picture...
i sorry here it is

Don't mind me, I just can't help myself... Anything to do with PhotoShop is automatically high priority in my mind. Lol... Besides, variety is (apparently) the spice of life. Maybe it's just one of the many spices....

Anyways, the PSD is attached if anybody wants to play with colours and stuff.

Hey! OH MAN. I dunno if anyones even watching this, but I need a start button orb that looks like a closed book, an opening book, and a completely open book. I'm participating in SkillsUSA and build a computer inside of a book... and now we are TRYING to customize everything we can to fit our theme. Help?!

I'll give that one a go.. I'm just looking for some clipart that will work for it. I may need to draw it from scratch, but we'll see what Google finds for me.



Edit: Right, this definitely is the strangest and one of the more challenging Start Orbs I've ever created, I don't want to add too much detail because the Start Orb button isn't that big... But let me know if there's anything about it you want changed.

As I usually do, BMP with alpha transparency is in the ZIP file, the JPG is just a preview. I'd suggest you use Kishan Bagaria's Windows 7 Start Orb Changer: Ultimate Tool To Change Your Start Orb | door2windows, it's the quickest and easiest way to change it.
