    I found this Handbrake icon and i really like how it looks in my dock. The only problem is i really don't like how the black shadow on the CD looks (black shadow on the left of the CD). I have tried to remove it in Photoshop, but i can not get it to look right. Can someone please help me get rid of the black. I want to make the dark area look like the rest of the CD.

    here is the icon(.png format):

    It's a cool icon, but what's up with the red drop-shadow / halo from the caliper? It doesn't really make any sense, particularly since the disc has a drop shadow that goes in only one direction...

    It looks good when its in the dock. try it. OS X puts its own shadow around the whole icon in the dock automatically.

    Its a cool concept, but the icon really wasnt created very well. A lot of the lines are jaggy, even around the easy parts like the dvd hub. It looks like whoever drew the icon copied/pasted parts into place instead of actually drawing it.


    Regardless, I'm glad you like the modification, OP.
