I can pay for a extensive-downloaded file like this iconset, so i will appreciate any help (a server to store my files freely -or not-). Thanks for the support.

Hi. Great icon set. Keep up the good work.

One problem though:

You still have some of the Size= lines in index.desktop set to 128. I changed these after I downloaded and it works nicely, but not everyone will know how to do this.

Other than that minor problem, I'm loving these new icons. Make more! :)

These icons have the potential of being the best looking icons available for KDE if it weren't for one thing...those drive icons. They're just too plain and blue. All the icons that have more color look unbelievable. However, just about every icon for disks are just plain and just about the same shade of blue. If you'd throw a dash more of color in there to liven them up, they'd rule KDE!

Can you have 3 separate downloads?

BASE download would have all essential Kicons, and a second version, FUll download would include all sizes, supplementary icons like Pheonix, Mozilla, GIMP, and so on.

The final would be named the SOURCE download and it would include the full set except in the Ulead Photo Impact format.

(BTW, any reason you use Ulead over Photoshop 7?)

That would be a great idea. Have one big package for those of us who have fast broadband access to be able to download the whole complete set and another set of packages that allows people to download what they need ! Great idea !

This is not the first icon set i released (the others are made for windows).
When i wish to make new icons, i search for a 'look' and try any graphic programs as possible.
For the Noia icons, i choosed initially the 'look' and searched a program capable to do the designs.
The Noia designs are very hard to do with usual bitmap editors.
Photoimpact have vector objects with 3d properties (not exactly, they are 2,5D), with 3d shading, transparencies and reflections, just like a 3d program, but using 2d vectors. Make the plastic, transparencies with reflections are very easy with Photoimpact (like to apply a gradient to a vector polygon).
I create the forms and polygons then i applied the 3d shadings, thanks to them the workflow are very high.
Unfortunatelly, i can export to vector data, specially when i wish to maintain the shading effects, so the Noia icons are in raster format.
Photoimpact is a good program for the effects, but is not a good bitmap editor

hi WinterWolf.

You are anticipated to my intentions.
This iconset (the Noia for KDE) will be the 'normal' edition, and i will updload a enhanced version.

At this moment, i decided to make 2 prinicipal releases:
-This icon set, as the 'main' jost covering the KDE essential icons, with icons for 'K' apps, no higher than 64x64 sizes
-The 'enhanced icon set' or '12' icon set with 128x128 icons. At this moment, i don't know if distribute only the 128 icons with a 'inherits' to the Noia main or release a entire release with all sizes. My first release (before the first upload at kde-look) have 20 mb!
-Other icons with Noia style, for applications, and suggestions. I received a lot of messages requesting icons for applications, and they will be released a part of 'essential' icon set.

I wish to organize a little the suggestions, and the 'releases plan'. I don't know how... maybe a thread on the Discussion section. If you (all of you) wish to post your comments here, i agree.

Thanks for the suggestions

Have you reason, the background ball is very aqua-stylish, and it will be different and match to other Noia icons!
Please, make a suggestion of how the design will be.
I will change the design (i don't like to see lots of balls on my desktop ;))

okay, i really dig your icon set. for me, i kinda LIKE the bluish tint to the icons, because nearly everything on my computer is tinted some shade of blue. these work pretty wel.

but aside from the ones above, i have a few other icons i'd like to see:
staroffice, openoffice, realplayer, kit, GRip, everybuddy, gaim, kopete, gftp, any of the SuSE set, KDict, and limewire.

plus, some "generic" ones (audio object, net object, file object, etc. a generic "chat" icon would cover all my chat programs) that i could apply to more obscure applications that shouldn't have wide enough distribution to justify a dedicated icon.

the file is HUGE as it is, so i wonder how many more icons could be put in without getting some monster tarball. but it *is* a great set. i hope you keep working on it. i was WONDERING what it was on some of the other screenshots around here.

thanks!

Other generic icons will be released apart of the iconset (for not increase the download size).
When i upload the sources, any people can make their own Noia icons, of course!

What orginal and just great lookoing icon set ! I am sorry that this is all that I can think of say right now. Keep working and filling it in with more icons !! Such as Knode, Control Panel, Phoneix, GQView, PornView, Galeon, Gkrellm and many more !! This icon set is one of the best I have ever seen !! Please continue working on it ! Hell if I was you I would talk to Mandrake, RedHat, Suse or any of the many other comercial distro out there and try to see if they can use your icons for their distro or at least include them. Maybe you might get some added $upport from them that will speed the development of this icon set along. :)

i don't like the knotes icon too (and some others). I will change it.
Phoenix have a very incredible succesful in their short life! Yes i will make their icon, but i don't know if it will be included inside the icon set or as a downloadable apart (with other icons)

i have to say that you've out done your self. i've been a fan of your work ever since you first released the Noia set for windows. but i must say that you've gone all out with this. keep up the excellent work. i'll be constantly checking back for updates.

These are *exactly* the kind of icons I've been wanting for a long time (and have absolutely no skill myself to creat! ;)

Thanks for taking the time to make my desktop a lot more appealing to the eyes -- I love the slightly cartoonish look and the colors are great.

Good job! I can't wait to get ahold of the rest when you are able to do so.
