I'm kinda picky over certain things, and it always bothered me that EE didn't have a program icon. I knew about the the logo that Assmaster made and I've been meaning to try and convert it into an icon for a while now. I talked with essel about it briefly today and he said I should go for it. So I did.

Hopefully it came out ok. I had to do a little extra work to smooth out the edges (the logo image I took off the website had lots of white around it). I did a quick test and it seemed to come out pretty good. There are 7 different sizes I accounted for; 256x256, 128x128, 64x64, 48x48, 32x32, 24x24, and 16x16. Let me know if there are any problems; I've only made icons on a few other occasions so I probably screwed something up.

Anyone is welcome to change anything on the icon :D

[EDIT]

New version up.

My computer crashed while downloading though I probably can't blame that on the icon. :[
They're a couple of shades darker than the original and the larger icons could do with a little more smoothing around the edges but overall not bad.

Wow, I certainly hope not D:

Anyways, I just noticed that it's darker than the original logo too...I'm not sure how that happened. Thankfully it should be pretty easy to fix. I don't know if I can really smooth it out anymore than it already is though, but I'll work on it some more today and see what I can do. Thanks :D

I started over. I think this attempt looks much better. I figured out a better way to remove the rough edge from the .gif logo on the EE site, so I really didn't have to do a whole lot of manual tweaking. I'm working on the .ico now :]

[EDIT]

Mkay, here it is: http://www.filesavr.com/iconee2_1

I've updated the OP with that link as well. Let me know what you guys think.

Speaking of which, what's left to do before the new EE site design can go public?
