The tutorial I gave you a link for is for attaching files to a post on SevenForums, once you've attached a file or picture to your comment and 'posted' it, you'll see the 'attached files' and 'attached images' on your post.

You might want to be a bit more specific when talking about "the changer", there are many ways and many programs used to change the start orb. While one program can use PNG files, the next one might not.

At the end of the day, Windows itself uses BMP files with an alpha layer to display the start orb, so creating it in that format to start with will prevent the image having to be converted by what ever program you use when the orb is applied.

I dont see the boxes there <.< and I WAS using Windows 7 start orb changer v2.6, which can only use bitmaps, i'm now using v4 (door2windows.com) which uses both, when saving an image with a glow effect as a bitmap, the glow turns splotchy, which obviously in a png it does not, so thanks to v4, problem solved.

Thanks
Nobody can help me, guys ?

maybe it would help if you posted the original orb rather than a screen cap of it...

But they are the same.
I thought this button could be modified, to fit exactly until the bottom of the taskbar.
But thanks, anyway
