    Hi, Can someone please edit this photo to remove the bottom "speech triangle" and the gray shadows? I am looking for a plain white background with the headphones on a square icon. I would like to use this as the "cover art" for some of my albums. Thank you for the help.

    This first one is the same as the original, with the parts you wanted removed and the white background.

    This next one is the same as above, but centered in the middle of the 1000x1000 pixel image.

    Just for the heck of it. This is what it looks like. I use the Cesium App. Love it! Thanks again.

    Thank you for the help with modifying this icon for me. Was wondering if you would be able to help again. Using the centered icon that you posted is it possible to replace the music icon with this podcast icon in black and color of the square purple (or any other color besides blue)? Thank you again.

    If you had a PDF file that could possibly help also for future projects. I can modify templates, but making one from scratch is difficult for me.

    Ok did this up real quick. Wasn't sure how big you wanted the podcast icon, but hopefully it's ok.

    In regards to the photoshop file (I assume you meant psd and not pdf?), I actually use gimp (though I didn't do much here, just cleared out the music logo, modified the master hue saturation then added the podcast logo), but I exported it as a psd for you, so hopefully coming from gimp it loads alright in photoshop. I put it in a zip since it seems you can't upload straight psd files as attachments here.

    I just noticed on the first logo I uploaded that I didn't lighten the top half of the logo like in the original, and when I went to do that I noticed part of the circle gets intersected by the the split purple background which looks bad when the top half is lightened, so I moved the logo a slight bit so the circle is above the purple line split. So here are two slight variations where the logo has been slightly moved, one without the lightening and one with the top half lightened.

    Sorry for the long delay in response.

    Thank you for the help with these again. I have been playing around with the edit file and am having trouble turning the back ground to an orange color (or even white & gray) for an audio book logo? Mind sharing how to achieve an orange color? Thanks so much again. I really do appreciate it.

    Well doing it the way I did really isn't the proper way (like using an adjustment layer or whatever), as I just lazily selected the background layer and modified the master channel for hue & saturation for the entire layer. This works for this file as the rest of the background (the headphone part) is all greyscale like so it doesn't get affected by the hue change. (to change the purple to orange, in gimp I upped the master saturation to 100, and modified the master hue to around 115 or so)

    I quickly did some more blank icon color variants for you. If there are any more colors you want just let me know.
