Somehow I left this out of my xwp shadow icon package.

Another butterfly, possibly the best of the three.

By the way, anything I upload, feel free to use anyway one wants, to modify, or add to.  As I have stated before, this is stuff I play around with which is why I refer to it as doodles.

I did the grey folders since grey is a neutral color.

I liked the yellow glass folders the best so far so I made more folder icons .

I also made a few more doc icons based on my glass idea.

I also modified the drawing pencil pointers to a more yellow look for my theme.

Also included a picture of my present desktop.

Hello david,
I wanted to ask you if you have the warp3 or warp4 icons of the magnifying glass,
 that we have in the xcenter, and that the xwpfinder program uses.It's for tests

I was trying to change this icon the other day, and it seemed that after changing it,
I increased the memory of the system. At about 200,000 to 400,000Kb
It seems to me that this increase in memory is due to the fact that when the icon is changed,
the desktop is reset.
If someone wants to verify it, for me it is a sensation. You just have to "Restart Desktop".
The pmshell.exe appears with a new pid and you're done.
Remember to have a backup, because when you restart the desktop,
if you have the defective inis it can be a kaos.
Saludos

Hi Roberto

I do not have the magnifying glass or any of the other icons.  The source files can be found at Netlabs if this helps.

Thanks for the link, I think I'll open a tiket with the error in xwpfinder, in mantis.

Concerning my previous comment of the memory, it turns out that according to theseus4,
it is exactly the opposite, to what I have observed. Doing the desktop restart,
I consume 350,000kb more than without doing it.
I can only say that if someone wants to try it, and compare it, it's simple.
 I already start the system, I do the restart desktop. It works better especially with applications like the virtualbox,
 which are some memory swallows.
The explanation, I do not know, could be from an error in theseus4, to a better use of the cache ...
Saludos

I am messing with a new glass prototype folder.  Uploaded are the templates. 

Also uploaded 7 test icons.

David, if you write a little application and use gray-scaled versions and identify mask templates for your base gray-scaled images, you can apply user-specified colors allowing them to generate their own custom preferences to generate an output icon set based on those preferences.

Put together a few base color group patterns for common likes and people can use those as a base for tweaking and creating their own custom entries.

If you're interested in something like that and you have some base OS/2 Presentation Manager programming skills, I would be happy to help you setup a template app and give you some cues on the algorithms where required.

Hi Rick

I appreciate the offer, but you have enough on your plate to handle.  Unfortunately, I am not a programmer.  I thought about it at one time may years ago, but realized without help, I would never be good.  In addition to lack of knowledge and skill, I am a poor typist.  That is why I started dabbing with icons, ptrs, and bmps.  I have had to teach myself over time.  Fortunately, no typing was involved.  It is just my way of contributing back to the OS/2 community. 
 
Best of luck on the goals you hope to achieve.

I can only work on any given project for a few days at a time then I need a switch.  I enjoy tackling new things.  On this project I would've mostly guided you and written some template code that you could expand upon.

Ok, I did some cleanup and rearranging on my icons.  I seperated them into different folders hopefully for easier viewing and locating.  I renamed a bunch of the icons.  I also added a few more.  I am deleting the previous icon packages.  I had to split them into two packages since one file is too big to upload.

Icon package 1
