    I have no idea what I'm doing but I started making text icons with photoshop. Again-stating clearly-I am a noob. Is there a (noobishly simple) way to make the PNG images appear larger on the dock? :confused:

    By default for LauncherPro, I believe the default size is like 115 x 115 or something around that range. My best advice to you would be get Photoshop CS3 or somethign like that and create an PNG that is 115x115 and design your text around that and how it should look. Play with some things, FYI keep it transparent if you don't want anything behind the words.

    It could help to send an icon that fits really nicely to your computer. Just delete any layers with existing art and use that as a template. Then you know you have the right size, resolution and everything.
