Let's see... I'm just going to name what I can think of and Google can do the rest.

Dock: Wrz
Wallpaper: Juxtaposition Neue by Louie Mantia
HDD icons: Pry by Jonas Rask
Bowtie: Geeky mod by me, somewhere in this thread I think (http://macthemes2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16790844)
Adium: custom theme by me, posted here (http://www.adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=xtras&xtra_id=6291)
Menubar icons: MenuBar Icon pack by iAndrew (http://macthemes2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16791898)

I made myself a PS template that overlays the bar at the bottom over whatever image I choose (then export as a JPG), used the Mirage (http://www.dockulicious.com/docks/view/mirage) clear dock (thx for telling me about it, You Know Who You Are :)), and that player on the left for iTunes is Bowtie (http://bowtieapp.com/).

The dock icons are the Kobhens (http://macthemes2.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16781372) set - and I made the stacks icons myself to match.

No, what I meant was for the icons. I can't seem to get it saved in order to have white letters on transparent background for icons.

Thanks,
-J

EDIT: Don't bother, I found a different .psd so I can modify that one. Is OK now. Thanks anyway.

My bad I misunderstood. Glad it's workin

I use a PNG, which gets the transparency - and then it needs to be converted in order to use as an icon (for which I use Pic2Icon)

I just save it as a PNG in PS and import it in candybar and it's working perfect.

The Facebook contacts are through Adium; you can add your Facebook account.

GeekTools gets the temperature, weather, and date. There's a thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=628023) in this forum with details on how to do that.

The iTunes icon is just a custom one, which you can download here (http://jonas.seph.ws/stuff/iTunes08.zip).

I think he meant your iTunes album art / info on the desktop. The program is called Bowtie. Available here, http://bowtieapp.com/ Could be wrong but that's how I read it. :)

Aloha everyone,

I decided to change my iMac's wallpaper, due to the complete lack of any mention of Snow Leopard during the MacWorld 2009 keynote. I also changed up the wallpapers for both my GlassBook Pro and PowerMac G4. I'll be posting all three, starting with my iMac. I used an existing iPhone wallpaper and modded it, slightly, with a screenshot taken from my iPhone.

Last up is my PowerMac G4. It's still going strong, on Tiger, after some eight years! It sill has the stock 15MB video card, and my wife doesn't want to spend the money to upgrade it, but otherwise, it still runs fine. I tried to paint over the letters with a camouflage brush, but didn't get it quite right. Still, I like the effect.

Just put the wallpaper together today during some down time at work, so I figured I'd show it off. I may release it at some point, but haven't taken the time to yet.

That is a stock Vista background. The creativity is overwhelming. No offense.

Haha, My iMac one.. To be honest I made that in Photoshop, and I have several other iMac icons too, i made a thread; Here's a link to it http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=637392 :) The folders in stacks are called Ocean icons, I forget where I get them from. http://elevatorhappyfun.deviantart.com/art/Time-Machine-and-Capsule-Icons-75263275 > that's the time capsule icon. The nano icon i'm sure you could find in a quick search in deviant art, but if you want a specific icon in my dock, hit me a pm :)

This is currently on my laptop at home. I had it for a while when the album first came out, and I wanted to go back to it for a bit.
