Hi Paulo, all,

HI all,

I had playing with Christoph's icon set last day, trying to make the 256px
version for some icons. I made
icons to Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw and Base. My style is a little
different, so I also made [few] changes in the background "document" to make
sure they "fit"... :)

Wow, now that's what I call 'value added' - the extra detail really
makes the icons outstanding! I was amazed when I saw them - excellent,
and thank you!!!

True, I never thought that somebody would take it up - I simply thought
about resizing the 128px icons instead. One can be so wrong :-)

However, to make you aware of that - only Windows 7 requires such icons
at the moment. Maybe this helps you to prioritize your efforts if there
are some ;-)

Some feedback from me:
I agree with Mike that the Base icon looks a little out of place
because it appears very shiny and IMHO our icons should not really go
for the shiny look but rather for depth (which you did extremely well
with the Impress icon).
Also, now that the graphics inside the document have so much depth and
'special effects', the outlines look very flat by comparison. This is
where maybe a small inner shadow might help to add some depth.

This might be helpful for you - although it is not that much content, I
once wrote a few lines to make all the artwork fit together well:

For decrease the SVG file size (1.5MB), I saved the file in the Compressed
Inkscape Format (SVGZ - 116KB). But the wiki uploader don't allow this
filetype, so I uploaded the normal SVG file... :/

I'll post this request on the website list.

Thanks, Ivan. In the meantime we might use ZIP files (allowed, although
the admins don't like it for good reasons) or keep the SVG files. One of
the advantages is, that the preview within Firefox (or other browsers)
let's people quickly have a look at it.

I hope you like them. Commentaries and critiques are welcome :). I hope also
we can complete all steps said by Berhnard and may release the new icons in
LibreOffice 3.3.1. :D

Thank you, Paulo and well done - keep it up :)

Yep, although I'm still speechless :-)
