    No - all the icons are for inspiration to get your creative juices flowing

    This is a nice little site where you can purchase pre made icon sets.

    Hi,

    Just out of interest, what is the best way of making an icon like the ones above? They look so good Clean, crisp and clear!
    I have some photoshops PSD's that I made, but whenver I try to make an icon with them, they turn out very blurry and bad quality.

    Is there a special skill required or do people use different programs to create them?

    Thanks,

    Nathan

    Your graphics are probably anti-aliased, try creating them aliased. Also, try using the pencil tool rather than the brush tool.

    More info on aliasing here

    Talking

    Wow FrozenToast!!

    I can't thank you enough!! I didn't realise that's what was causing the problem. I just made some changes and turned off anti-aliasing which was set to anti-alias crisp and suddenly it looks incredible

    I wish someone told me earlier about this.

    Thanks,

    Nathan

    you can also get the program Microangelo...for the sole purpose of creating icons...its really a good program in my opinion.

    Download the shareware at www.download.com or www.tucows.com
