    I would like the RAID Utility icon modified to say WiFi where it says RAID currently with an orange background.

    I'll try to do it tonight, if no one does it before me. No promises though.

    Being bored.

    The gradient is not perfect and it was more of a cut and paste job.

    PS: Just realized, that the letters are a little bit transparent in the original. As I worked only with the png, I can't go back to the letters for my version. And now I'm too lazy for that. Someone else will do a better job than me anyway.

    Here is a quick psd file with the transparency intact.

    Or as a png.

    May I know how you did the sharp gradient?

    I masked some small portion of the green gradient without the letters, copied that to cover the letters, and also masked the sides, and so the area where the two meet ca be seen as they don't flow into each other.
    The colour was done with Hue/Saturation.

    I made a shape layer with rounded corners to cover the original gradient space. Then I applied a gradient overlay with 4 colors so two met at the 50% mark. Added a inner shadow to it. Did the same for the copy except a tight drop shadow.

    Here are the two gradients I applied.

    Thank you very much.

    It's quite simple, but I never tried that.
    I'm more of a photo colour manipulation type and don't do much with graphics per se.
