These are some icon pics I made from an existing icon already on my system.  Hopefully they will be usable for replacements for enable auto-login and disable auto-login icons. These are not technically icons, but should be able to be used as icons. They were saved as .png so they should have transparency around the borders.





If these are not what the team is looking for let me know and I might be able to come up with something better.   :)

May I ask you a favour friend?

I use these images in my desktop menu as I try to avoid using the whisker menu.
   

I would like something colorful and similar to Windows icons so folk are already familiar with them.

No problem if I ask to much, time is the only thing one has of any value.

No pressure

Those icons are already very much like ones found in windows, I don't think I can make them any better, sorry.

No problem avj thanks for taking the time to look and being honest, I'd love to improve them but let the big MS take on David about IP, all publicity is good publicity.

Did you look at http://papyros.io/ Michael Spencer seems to be a well respected designer.

I reworked one of the icons and added it to my first post, I like the new one better than the original.

Thanks for sharing avj. I like this.


I've played with this a bit.  ;)


Maybe changing only the color of the background would be also look nice.

Where did these icons originate from? We are certainly looking for a set of icons for LL, but they must be 100% original so we can make them our own :)

The icons above were made to look like an icon from the Faenza icon theme that I believe comes with LL. I used a screen capture to get an image of the icon, because i didn't know where to find them on the system. The screen capture let me get a copy of the icon at approximately 48x48 pixels which I scaled up with gimp in order to have a 64x64 pixel representation of the original icon. Then I added the other parts of the icon to make it fit the idea of each program.
This is what the screen capture looks like before any changes.

The Faenza icon theme is licensed under GNU GPL v3 according to: 
https://code.google.com/p/faenza-icon-theme/
If you are uncomfortable with using the above icons, or if you like these better feel free to use them. These icons were made by me today,and are 100% my own work.




I incorporated misko's idea of color into the last two.

Hello avj,

nice work on the icons.
Backgrounds being brighter than Faenza, and with gradients like LL splash.

Thanks  bitsnpcs,  I was not really satisfied with the first set I made. This set seems to feel a little more contemporary, to me anyway.
