WHAT IS THIS?
This is the seventh set of my NewIcon images for your Workbench. These all use
the standard NewIcon palette, so they won't allocate any extra pens from your
Workbench if you are already using NewIcons. The entire AESicons series is
well over 600 icons!!!
IMPORTANT! If you are not running NewIcons, these will only look like little
squares and you won't see any cool icons. Read the enclosed guide file on how
to install them.
WHAT'S NEW IN THIS VERSION?
Included are over 140 images not found in the original NewIcons archive,
NewIconsXtra sets, or my previous 6 AESicons archives.
This archive contains tons of imagedrawers. A lot of people asked for image
drawers that identified the directory's contents in the unselected state of
the icon. If you prefer the folder type images, they will be coming hopefully
soon, so be patient. AESicons 8 is actually nearly finished, and it will
contain more program icons, lots of Toolmanager dock icons, and plenty of
In this archive, the top level of imagedrawers are actually...well, DRAWERS.
The image drawers in the next level are merely images, so you don't need to
go digging any further in the directories to find the images. If you're new
to NewIcons, make sure you read the installation section.
Keep coming with the requests!
HEY SOFTWARE AUTHORS!
For you software authors out there, how about putting some NewIcon images in
with your programs? For those not using NewIcons, they don't see them anyway,
and it saves me the trouble of having to deal with deleting those purple MWB
icons and me having to make new images for your software. You can easily make
them from DPaint IFF brushes. If you're not an icon artist, send me some
mail, and perhaps I can make something for you.
Regardless of whether you prefer MWB or NewIcon images (or neither!), it's
important to remember that the NewIcons system works with any style of image,
and gives you the benefit of not having to worry about what your palette is
set to in preferences. The images will auto-remap to the appropriate color.
Personally, I prefer the NewIcons style, but you can use NewIcons to adapt
your icons to any style you like.
Thanks go out to Nicola Salmoria[0m[31m[40m for his great programming work,
and Roger McVey for his talented artistry.
This set is freely distributable, and the individual icons may be used or
modified as you please. If you pass on the package to others, please keep the
archive intact with its documentation. The authors of the programs for which
these icons were designed have my permission to add them to their program
archives; please let me know if you do. Email gives me incentive to keep this
little (?!) series going, so let's hear from you.
These icons were created with DeluxePaint IV AGA, and NewIcon2brush. Final
formatting was done with killoldicon by Michael Barsoom, and my batch NewIcon
processing script, Brush2NewIcon (which I may upload to Aminet someday if I
make it more user friendly).
Feedback is always appreciated. If you use these icons, and love (or hate)
them, send me some e-mail and let me know. If you have a particular request
for an icon, I'm usually pretty accommodating.
