A new logo for XnView?

Post by James »

Hi Pierre and others,

I would like to say, that XnView is really cool program, I have been using it for many years. But after the new version has been released I have realized, that the program's logo is not so very cool, do you consider making a new logo, something like XnView Deluxe 2? It has much better logo :P

Plz, the logo of the program and Windows icons is also an important part of the program... Thanks!

Current logo looks, tastes & smells like XnView. New logo should be really really good to beat the current one.
(ps. XnView Deluxe icon looks like awful XP icon)

I agree, I even made some wallpaper and posted somewhere in these forums using the XnView logo.

Please don't change XNView logo... its high quality and unique appearance is what got me to try XNView in the first place, several years ago.

I like it!

jepp, i agree. the logo must not changed.

but i would be nice to have some more colored version in the xnview.exe.
i have a link in the quickbar of windows and it uses the first icon in the exe file. for me, this looks very ugly, because of the light grey. i would prefer some other colors, like white, dark-gray, etc., maybe transparent.

if there is a need for other users too, i could contribute some colored icons.
if nobody has interest in that, i wont :-)

:D Hello !

• Would you like something like this ?. It's an *.ico file you may save…
- You can change any icon even for the Quick Launching bars in Windows like on the Desktop : RM-click >> Properties >> Change Icon
- Further, some alternative customized standalone icon-libraries to state i.e. in <xnview.ini> could be a must 8)

:mrgreen: Kind regards

No, sorry, too many colours for me...

I want just a bit more red and white background instead of grey.

isnt that the deluxe icon?
no, i want something more plain.
but thanks for the suggestion!

the next time i just create some of these icons with different colours and will offer them for 5$ each.

hehe...joking.

please let me know, if you'd like to have some special colours or so. i just change the background colour, no more.

if there is any copyright violation or some other artist-related things i'm overlooked or missed, please let me know. i will not start to work on it the next days.

• Seriously, it should be cheap : professional icon-designers asks for $50 each ! Quite true !
- I made this one from the small logo of DeLuxe I use on the French manual, plus a shade and patched to make a 32*32 icon…
- “Almond-green” background is nicer than grey, IMHO…
