Resources: If you dont have Photoshop you can use this set of png shapes to make your icons: Download
Here is a collection of Photoshop custom icon shapes that I've collected for myself Download (this is a Photoshop csh file)
Also see post #2 for Photoshop users.


For some inspiration you can look at these icon packs: Link
you can also browse the iPhone galleries here on M9 for ideas/inspiration: Link



You will post the following in the Entry Thread:

1. All your icons on one 800 x 800px preview
(you will have to resize them to fit the preview)

2. A layered file ( a psd or xcf file) for at least 1 of the icons
(if you used only the resource shapes provided you can skip this)

3. Gallery Link
(please add DC 51 to your icons name when uploading)


How to add icons to the gallery:

Upload
Don’t know device
Themes
Icons
(you need to resize your preview to 500x500px and place the 20 icons in a zip folder first)

I like Apple icons as a topic - it's a little like making 20 little themes (but without any theme restrictions) wink.gif


Edit

Just made my first icon (contacts) ... not sure if I like it yet blink.gif

Wow love the look of this icon 10.gif
CrazEric
oops.gif I just visited the developer site again & realized that I looked at the wrong page before oops.gif

The icon size should be 120 x 120px (not 256 x 256)
for those who started you can continue using the bigger size or re-size to 120px - I will accept entries for both sizes.


Sorry for my mistake everyone! surrender.gif notworthy.gif

EDIT - i've Tried This another one

I've used a Basic background for all icons and put a icon from web.
is it right ? unsure.gif
anulubi
thanks you notworthy.gif

aero i dont know about BG. but the icon must come from the scratch works.which means you should make it by yourself(you can use brushes and shapes,for sure)

yes I'm afraid Anulubi is right you cant use other icons to make your icons
I don't mind if you use "minimal icons" (that's just black or white) since they are the same as using PS shapes anyway
and you cant use pictures on the background/button either you have to use gradients/patterns/layer styles etc.
there's lots of web button tutorials on the web that can help with that wink.gif

You cant use originals for this challenge ...
you have to draw them yourself in PS or
use the png shapes I gave in post #1 (color/decorate them or leave them plain)

if there's no shape you like then you can use plain black or white icons from the web like this calculator icon: http://www.easyicon.cn/language.en/icondetail/535895/
but you can not use a detailed icon like this calculator icon: http://www.veryicon.com/icons/object/sigma...culator-32.html


How you upload them to the M9 gallery is at the end of post #1

@ CrazEric

Eric I made a little bit changes at your icons..I download yours and after that I change the color...IT's ok?
mashhellboy

I've uploaded many icons on many sites - can you post 1 icon preview so I can see what you mean (even if you are still busy working on it)?

Are you asking if anulubi made his icons from those icons?
I cant be sure until I see his psd ...
but if I resize & overlay the ones that are similar then the lines dont match up so he probably only used it as an idea/guide to making his own.
However I will check his psd to be sure okay wink.gif

no bro, you shall add 1 psd only. i was just proving those icons are really created by me. smile.gif
i too had an uploading problem. i tried many times. at last it was successful. i think its a cause of site development process.
