ThinkSecret has published another gallery of images from the latest build of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) with a focus on many of the new Finder icons which are displayed in high resolution screenshots.

They note that Apple's Leopard icons support higher resolution icons than the 128x128 pixel size limit in previous versions of Mac OS X. Accordingly many of the Finder icons resolutions have been increased.

Can someone explain to me why we need higher resolution icons? They're ridiculously big is at is already.

P-Worm

The higher the standard resolution gets for new machines, the smaller those icons are going to seem at a maximum size/magnification.

agreed. It's not really worth it at all in my opnion... can someone tell me why it would be? Resolution independence?

expose icon is ugly

Couldn't agree more, it's an abomination.

They already have a decent looking icon for exposé in system preferences, just enlarge it to 256x256 and call it a wrap.

"Weh weh weh, make these icons so big?"

"Boo whoo, the blue folders and icons are ugly."


Geez, some of you guys... nit-picking much? :mad:

Shut up and enjoy Leopard when it comes in October. :)

iCal icon looks, er... pixelated. (edit: just seen the note above it)

Those saying it's overkill to have icons larger than 128x128... I suppose I agree on the actual icon side of things, but Mac OS currently doesn't have a dedicated thumbnails view mode, and right now I only ever use icon mode in Tiger as a thumbnail view at 128x128... I can definitely see myself using icon view in a larger size in Leopard, just to see image previews better.
