I hope you will be able to understand my point .

I have asked the original artist for their permission

I have to attach the image as a zip file because it wouldnt let me attach a bmp file. Sorry!
xCupiiCakex has kindly given me permission to work with her orbs So I'll see what I can do for you.

Right, after a lot of fiddling with alpha channels, I was able to knock one together. I had to use a different start orb changer though. You can download it here:

Change Windows 7 Start Orb with Windows 7 Start Button Changer

I've attached the files I don't know whether they worked originally, but I decided to remake them anyway.

Credit goes to xCupiiCakex for the original image!

All done I'm not sure about the transparency of the one you wanted resizing, let me know if it looks strange - I had to fiddle a lot with the alpha channels.

No worries, I'm glad you like them Great job! That looks great. Just a tip though, as you may know, the order of the images goes:

Top image = Normal orb
Middle image = Mouseover orb
Bottom image = Pressed orb

The main emphasis usually goes on the mouseover orb So, in my opinion, the outer glow would be best on the middle image. But that's just me being picky! Really good job with those.

Edit: None of the above applies, you've changed the image since I started typing this
