Stu, a comment I heard recently was that the icons look best when they have been alpha-blended so that the edges of the images have a level of transparency to them. (obviously not so much of an issue with icons that have straight edges!).
I know that with PNG images, instead of pixels being either transparent or opaque they can each have a varying amount of transparency (usually 16 or 256 levels, so I guess that's what was meant.
I also know that Paint.NET allows this sort of control over transparency, and I'm guessing applications such as photoshop and paint-shop-pro do too.
With this in mind, I wonder if you could clean up/replace some of the default icons that are in the /images directory to make them look better for me? Some of them could do with being of a higher resolution as well as they go back to the early days of SwissCenter on SD screens!
You're making such a good job of the styles that you're making the default icons/images show their age (and author's lack of artistic ability!).
I'll shut-up now - I'm Just rambling...
