I just want to know where the menu bar icon .png files are so that I can customize them a little with photoshop.

Also, has anyone else done this and are there any special steps I need to take?

Thanks

You can find them in System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras. Right click & show package contents for the menu item you want to change, and go to /Contents/Resources. Should be there.

Thank you!

Here is what I have so far.



The battery also shows the amount of charge left in blue instead of black now as well.
The Adium icon changes with my status. I needs the new beta release to work.
The date and clock is controlled by MenuCalendarClock

Wow...old thread. This was with Tiger. I haven't changed anything with Leopard. I would suggest heading over to the forums at MacThemes and searching.
