Anyone care to post new icons/favs/component icons that they've created recently? There aren't that many out there, and I'm not very good with PS.
First off, get Paint .NET (assuming you're on Windows) and use that instead of Photoshop. It's wonderful and free.
Learn how to create layers and how to use them, how to use the magic selection tool, how to resize an image, how to resize a canvas and finally how to save as a flattened PNG, and you'll be ready for action. That's all I know how to do but I've built all my 88x59 custom icons in that tool using that knowledge and it's super, super easy and quick.
Feel free to search this thread for my username to get my other channel and activity icons. Plenty of other users posted theirs too.
As for new ones, I just got a Pioneer VSX-1120 which has iPod Control, so I added the following:
I also got a Panasonic Plasma that has Skype video call functionality, so my activity icon is this:
And my activity page looks like this:
