    I feel like a change with my app icons.

    I already have a fairly extensive collection of icons for one thing or another, but only find icon sets online that cover maybe half of what I need.

    Does anybody know if there are icons out there to be downloaded that will cover most or all mac icons & still look cool?

    I'm not after something like CANDY BOX, where you can change all your system icons, just a comprehensive library with icons covering everything from itunes & iphoto, through to quicktime, Photoshop & Exel.

    Some nice blank folders would be cool too for my own stuff.

    Now there's a request!!!

    :p

    Try www.InterfaceLIFT.com They have lots of great icons, I've replaced probably 30 or 40 of my default icons with ones downloaded from them. :)

    I know you said you didn't want CandyBar, but on the icon factory's site, there are a lot of icons for applications as well as system icons. For these I would tend to look in the 'extras' sets, and I know of a good set called 'Litho' which has two extra packs which contain main apps.

    Cool, I'll check those out.

    I definately think there's room for somebody to take every application commonly (or evenly uncommonly) used by the mac & create a themed Icon set or sets. It would seem that these people enjoy creating icons, so lead the way!!!

    The best I've ever managed in the past is to replace around a third of my dock. It would be really cool to give the whole lot a facelift, and not to find one or two apps left out.....

    Nope, although I found some nice icons on both of those sites, I still can't find a set so I can have everything in my dock themed...

    Doh!!!! :mad:

    candybar is great for that, or if you read the faqs on interfacelift.com they explain how to change them yourself.
