    So I love the features of seepu but hate the icons as their tiny so I modified the PNG files from OS monitor as it had Icons I liked more but is really laking the real time ram output and blended them into seepu everything is working great and while I love the icons they're not sharp enough for my liking and I was wondering if anyone could tell me why they look like crappy mdpi res icons at the moment they're 32x32 pixels but I have no idea what I should use for these considering seepu icons were larger (38x38) yet the image looked smaller.

    I like the size of the icons just not the res, anyone wanna help me out here?

    By the way it's the red and blue icon

    My theory is that the 32x32 i mages are being stretched to 38x38 by the program since I would bet it is looking for the larger size. The stretching would make it look not as sharp. Try an icon of the correct size and see if it looks better.

    One more thing for you to try if you really like that icon is to create a new icon at the 38x38 size and then copy the 32x32 image onto that 38x38 background and then save it into the correct format.

    Did that, and while the quality went up dramatically. The icon became smaller

    So my theory was correct. You'll need to find an image of the correct size if you want it bigger and still sharp.
