    Hey guys, is there any places or people that you know that would kindly make a icon for my opensource application "MultiAlarm" for free.

    if anyone here would like to try to make a icon i would just love it, which ever icon i use will get full credit but onfortuantly since MultiAlarm is free i cant exactly pay you

    First of all: what exactly does MultiAlarm do? Might come in handy for ideas to know something about it.:)

    Can't promise anything, but if something nice comes to my mind I'd make one. Do you have some Icon Creation Software? I only have CS2 and do mostly print design with it, would a .gif or something be sufficient for you? I always wanted to do some Icons but never had time/desire to search for a good app to turn photoshop stuff into icons.

    If you want to see some of my stuff check out my homepage (sig). It's german but I guess the pictures speak for themselves (at least I hope so).:D

    well it uses the motion sensors in apple laptops to sound a alarm when moved, just like ialertu but for all the laptops.

    i have photoshop cs2 but i guess even a gif would help as it would help others just touch it up or what ever

    PS. nice site looks good

    PSS. mine is http://semaja2.net

    Back again. Made 2 versions, a funny one and a more simple OsX style one. Personally I prefer the funny one. Feel free to give feedback, input etc.

    Nice! Try using perspective/skew on the Apple so it matches the laptop angle.

    Nice to see it used and functional. You're welcome. What did you use to turn the gif into an icon?

    I'll see what I can do about the arming and disarming sections.

    well i used gimp to crop it and make it 128x128 then i used icon composer which is part of the developer tools and from there its simple, if you want any more credit just feel free to tell me over email or pm or whatever :p

    You're wellcome!

    I did notice the disarm icon looks a bit "dirty" in the disarm window, maybe because of the .gif compression. I'll email you the psd file, maybe you can achieve a better result with that.

    Just a thought - maybe the disarm icon should have the padlock open?

    Hey those icons are excellent, now the problem is deciding on what icons to use becuase yours and chaosbunny's icons are so well done.

    my only comment on your icon is that the black line that is curved looks a bit odd (could just be my screen)

    also could you make a similar icon for the password bit like maybe a key or something
