Re: XnViewMP new icon

Indeed, I know from experience that exposing design direction in a user forum. is sure a good idea if you are looking for epic discussion. but may not be the best idea to make a designer's life easy. there's a very funny formula famous among web designers expressing the quality of a design versus th...

Re: XnViewMP new icon

PS. IMO, the current XnView logo is one of the most inspired logos on the internet. It looks like a splash of paint that just happened to land in the form of an eye. How perfect is that for an image tool? Unity of form, unity of idea, unity of aesthetic: a poetic visual statement that will be very ...

Re: XnViewMP new icon

But IMO, either they just don't "say" (or "imply", if you will) XnView , or they don't exhibit a sufficient link with the old logo to communicate continuity with the current product (something I think is absolutely essential in a "new" logo). I'm not sure I understand, Are you saying the first glos...

Re: XnViewMP new icon

Would it be possible to make that blue into red and then that orange into a lighter shade of orange (orange not yellow) just to be more closer to the existing XnView logo or would it look too 'chicken' puck puck :P Also if you could just add the same triangle on the left also to really announce tha...

Re: My GUI feedback on Xnview MP

9. In my opinion the default background colour of the viewer should be at a neutral colour and not black, like in the default Vista image viewer; http://i48.tinypic.com/nxs2ds.png It is fine by me if clear intentions want to keep it black, but it's just my feedback on taste :wink: What other users ...

Re: XnViewMP new icon

Not exactly, xnview for un*x is very old, and use very old GUI (Motif). XnViewMP use the same source code for all platforms. XnViewMP has a native unicode support, and will be able to load full bit depth picture (8/16/32 bits per component), ... and on top of that I believe xnviewMP will probably e...

Re: XnViewMP new icon

"orange poo soup" - I think you were offended at me saying that Yours looked familiar from somewhere else and unimpressive but theirs no need for childish name calling, you sound petty in life :P. I was referring to the way the original icon looks at 16x16. the older I get the more I like childish ...

Re: XnViewMP new icon

Or perhaps just as simple as adding a background orb with some glow and slight drop shadow, like this: http://i46.tinypic.com/6jdkc2.png Orb could maybe have some reflection effect on it if whole logo was redone as hi res vector My first motivation was to get a 16x16 icons that doesn't look like so...

Re: XnViewMP new icon

so XN stands for Xeno. is that right ?
