    I'm trying to figure out how to make my own icons that match the look-and-feel of the launcherpro icons... anyone had any luck in this department?

    Nuts. No answers. I was wondering about this myself.

    I would be interested as well... was just thinking about this the other day... I would be willing to make a donation for the creation of some of these icons... I'll be watching and waiting.

    For those interested here's a website someone on another forum created for requesting/sharing LauncherPro Icons. Very cool.

    My new dock :D

    [​IMG]

    From left to right:

    Dialer
    - Shows missed call count

    Social folder
    - Shows unread sms count
    - Contains... lots of social apps

    App Drawer
    - Standard

    Internet folder
    - Shows unread gmail count
    - Contains Browser, Bookmarks folder, Email, Gmail, Market, Dropbox, and Info folder containing news apps and such

    Mixzing
    - Standard. I like it because it doubles as a music player and a video player.

    I have Adobe Photoshop CS2, but never used styles. Can someone give a quick run-down on how to use the "LauncherPro.asl" found on Blacksheep's link?

    I'm currently using ADW.Launcher and I preferred it over LauncherPro because I could customize which apps are at the bottom. Now it looks like you not only can add your apps to LauncherPro, it looks like you can customize it too. I would like to try it, but I don't see the Photoshop styles even though the Styles is checked in the drop-down menu.

    I have posted 3 video tutorials on this subject at bit.ly/lpicons.

    There are already several icons for common apps submitted by users all of which are free for download on that website too.

    I also have an app on the market that makes downloading the icons a one-click process at http://bit.ly/LPiOnAppBrain

    Wow, thanks, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million.

    By the way, the link for the app on appbrain is dead.

    How do you place a folder in launcherpro dock? Do you make a shortcut of it with bettercut or something first?

    Nah, I use FolderOrganizer. For a free version, AppOrganizer does the same thing but with a few less bells and whistles.
