Windows 7: Custom Start Menu Button Collection

Thanks for the offer ZaLiTH, but I did it! Well, as good as I could get it. Take a look if you'd like & anyone who wants to use it, go right ahead; it's in the .rar attachment.

I do have a question though:
When using Photoshop & I save it as a .bmp, all is fine. But if I save it as a .png & try to Import it into StartOrbz, I get the message below.

I have all files (.png & .bmp) in the same folder, but the SM.png I made does NOT show up in the list & I can't get it imported. Should I ask Blizo?

I'm working on some start orbs for football teams here in the UK

Arsenal

Liverpool

MK Dons

You'll notice that with the Liverpool orb, the fames ignite instead of the whole orb glowing

I was wondering, how can I get glow effects for these in gimp? When I tried and saved as bitmap it turned the glow into a hard colored splotch. And also, how do i get the boxes that say "Attached Images" and "Attached Files" at the top in my posts?

Thanks
