This is my first attempt of making a skin, just some glossy buttons plus some photoshop shapes.

Hope you like it! :)

nice, kinda webui-ish look, i like it a lot

like Ghost21 & dAbReAkA said a star for "make torrent" would be more appropriate

hoping u'll make a complete set :)

Thanks for your comments! ;)

I changed the heart icon to star, it really does make more sense. Also, the up and down arrow seemed too big in comparison to other symbols so I changed that too.

:D

the main icon looks a bit edgy used as a tray one.. u may have to make a smaller version of it..

That's because you should use and icon with only 16x16 size for tray icon. Try this one

Blu11, you must have created the icon incorrectly because 16x16 should automatically be used.

Weird, I tried resorting the image formats inside the icon - same thing. But I think that the main.ico and tray.ico files only utilize the 16x16 format anyway, and I use the small icon too.

If anyone has a clue how to fix the icon to display correctly, please tell! :)

well, if you post all the different sizes of this icon, I can make a icon that works correctly.

Thanks, boo!

So, the image formats should be sorted from 16x16 up. Didn't know that! And the icon editor I use was automatically sorting them in the wrong way. :/

Thanks again.. :D

Nice icons, but can I make a suggestion or two? The status icons for uploading and downloading with the tracker down should be red not green. Just a bit confusing for me is all.

Also, why ticks instead of up arrows for uploading? Ticks would be better for Finished.

And maybe use a lighter shade for the Queued ones?

Other than that, great icons, I've got a bit of a Hal theme on my comp, these go well with it. Thanks

import_fighter, from the FAQ:

Put tray.ico (for the tray) and main.ico (for the GUI) in C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Application Data\uTorrent, or in the same directory as utorrent.exe if you have the settings in the same directory. You must restart µTorrent for this to take effect.

Demon-boy, thanks for your comments! ;)

After one of my hard disks died, my icons are all over and haven't had much time to play around.

But I will fix it as soon as I find time.

TY :)
