    This is for anyone who uses Google's GMail notifier that sits in the menu bar and lets you know when you have new mail.

    I thought the original graphics look very un-Google like, so I made some new ones for it.

    Just dowload the .zip file, extract it, and then:

    In the finder, find the GMail notifier app., control-click it, select 'Show Package Contents', and then copy everything inside the folder created from the zip file into the Resources folder of the gmail notifier. It should ask you if if you want to replace the existing files - click replace.

    Quit GMail notifier if it's running, and when it launches again, it should have a more Google-like appearance ;)

    Hope you like it! I've attatched a screenshot so you can see it before downloading.

    That looks much nicer.

    I'll give it a try once I get back to my mac.

    Thanks

    It looks much better. Could you make a red GMail notifier icon? Thanks!

    Download the zip file provided by Josh (first post) and follow his instructions. It changes it from that ugly blue (gmails default) to a pretty red. :cool:

    I think what he's talking about is the actual application icon - correct?

    If so, I probably could make a red one - never tried making an app. icon though lol
