Default Clowney Hit Start Button

Thoughts on the custom start button? It has 3 states.

It's a third party Windows 8 start button called Classic Shell. http://download.cnet.com/Classic-She...-75553853.html

The image used is actually 1 png with the 3 images stacked vertically. Just select the custom image from the Classic Shell menu and play with the sizing to get it right.

Easy enough to do on your own, just open a gif in GIMP, save each frame you want to use from the gif as a seperate image file, then erase the background you don't want. Put them together and all done.

It's on my work pc, but I'll upload the source image here tomorrow.

Too bad Macs don't have a start button.

As promised....



If you're saving it, make sure to keep it as a png or you'll lose the transparency.

I really liked this idea a lot. The one problem I saw with it was a small line going across the top of the second image, so I removed that. I also made the image smaller because the original one was blocking link previews in my browser, but I can post the original-sized one without the line too if anyone would like it. All credit should go to ValiantSpur as this concept was his idea and his work, I just tweaked it a bit.

Oh, I also took out some of the gray space in between Clowney's dreads in the first image, but it doesn't really make a difference with how small mine is, because you can't see that space either way.
