    Hi everyone. I am trying to customize my icons with an icon set I finally put together that I liked, but when I put it on the screen they are way too tiny to even enjoy them. I'll attach a screenshot below of a regular icon next to one of the ones that I downloaded.

    The ones that I downloaded are 100x100 transparent .png if that matters.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated... I am using BetterCut too if that helps.

    you need to make the icons bigger.

    not the canvas size but the (facebook)image itself. the size of the file might be 100x100 but obviously the actual content of the icon is not, and the rest is transparent. its like drawing a tiny picture on a big piece of paper, the paper doesnt need to get bigger, the picture does

    post that icon here and ill show you
    use imgur.com

    Sorry it took so long, i had to go to sleep
    try this one. should be a little bigger. could make it bigger but did wanna lose all the glow around it. Its already cut off enough and doesnt look as good because of this. Thats the reason why the graphic was so small, cause it had a huge glow around it

    youd have to use an image editor like photoshop or gimp and select the icon in the image then scale/stretch it out

    Dang. Sounds like a lot of hardwork, oh well. I guess I can keep looking around for other icons, thank you.


    I have no idea what Lookout is.
