Very nice 3D effect, Yuri!
I'd prefer one of these newer ones over the previous monochrome version :-)

Yes, Yuri I like this very much too, much better 8)

One last thing though :D ...How do you fancy some multicolor on it, just to give it that extra punch IMO?

btw, I also see Yuri that you like using a circle 'spotlight' in your recent screenshots, except your not using XnView MP's spotlight because MP currently does not support circle-selection :mrgreen:

one color = one icon in different sizes
multicolor = multi-icon? :)

You are right. This is really good way to focus attention. Thank you.

Well some icon files can contain different image pages for the purpose of sizing (e.g. 256x vs 32x of same icon)... but yes 'one color' makes more sense to the user for typical icon files...Was just playing with ideas.

..So yes mezich, 'one color' please ignore my contentiousness..I vote for your red version: :D

The red one stands out nicer at a resized 16x16 from my tests.

Ok, so which color looks for final icon: 'Red' or 'Cyan'

Red color

or maybe Cyan color

Hmm Yuri, what are these 3 that you have planned:

Would be nice to hear Pierre's decision on whether "theme" and "web capture" in the Browser mode should get icons too...

I created these mock-up for both.

-"theme" is represented by a duo-colored T-shirt/sweater metaphor
-"web capture" is a mix of both the 'screen capture' and 'upload to web' icons that are currently present in XnView MP

yes ok why not :P then could you also then after add it to demopage.

mezich wrote:what is 'theme'?

In XnView MP you can now change the theme/skin (Qt interface):
viewtopic.php?f=60&t=16181
viewtopic.php?f=60&t=23921
...accessible within the Browser mode, under "view" menu

Yes I too the same thought just a camera and globe would be just enough, I just added the extra 'download' arrow to further exorcise the point of what the feature is actually doing. Thank you.

Really beautiful icons, I am very impressed :D
----------------------------------------

Next thing I await in future is an icon for "Theme" and then second thing to re-think/recolor the view mode icons:
budz45 wrote:So Instead of the dark blue-ish common 'view mode' icons, why not consider Mezich just using the existing gradient-based scheme which is already seen on the "next page"/"prev page", "Multipage/ Start/stop ani" icons of the demopage. So I mean alter color scheme like this:

But all in good time, no rush...
