Yes Arc I did
I had also found the one i was talking about but it seems to be lost in a bundle of folders and I forgot the name of the theme I used it with..cause it looked good with that particular theme and background.

Hey everyone! I was told to post in here for someones help! I am wanting this image to be converted into a working start orb! Someone tested it for me in here but told me it isnt converted right. Every time I try to make it my startorb, I get told that it is invalid! Can someone please make this into a working start orb for me? Thank you thank you! I have to attach the image as a zip file because it wouldnt let me attach a bmp file. Sorry!

Hello onlypatty ! Can you post the original image of that bowtie here for us ?

As the making is involved some steps, it is highly difficult to convert a finalized image into a working start orb, better start with a fresh one.

I dont have the original bowtie though! I downloaded the image from deviantart. A user put it on there under startorbs

Can I post some images of hello kitty wearing a bowtie and maybe you could crop it out and make me a start orb from that??

Sorry in that case , onlypatty Please dont misunderstand me .... it is not only unfair but also illegal to work on some other designer's stuff without his/her prior permission .

I hope you will be able to understand my point .

Request anything fresh, we will do it for you, for sure.

Okay now I am confused. I downloaded the orb at Orbs by xCupiiCakex on deviantART
where the owner has put it there for anyone to use as it is a start orb she has made. I am just trying to get it to apply to my computer as it keeps telling me it is invlaid.

Here is a bow though, can someone please make it into a start orb. thank you

You won't be able to apply one image as a start orb like that. Start orb images have to be laid out in the following format:



So there's 3 orbs in one image - normal, mouseover and clicked.
