Icon Needed :)

Hi there,

Hopefully just a quick one for someone here -- I need the Sonos image turned into a bit of a glassy sphere (so it looks more like the Spotify icon) with a transparent background -- any takers?

Thanks in advance!

Nice... but not quite right? The background needs to be transparent and maybe spherical was the wrong word (my bad!)

So how about circular (so SONOS isn't distorted) with the "glass" effect applied? When it's all said and done, it' going to sit on the dock above

The background is transparent and it really is a circle. It's a PNG so you need to click on it so the background doesn't look black. As far as the distortion on Sonos, I can play with it a bit tomorrow. In the meantime, someone else may come along with a fix.

Okay, here's a better starting image. Without changing the shape of anything, all this needs is the "glass effect".

The following icons on the screenshot below are the "glass" effect I'm striving for: Messages, Photo, YouTube, Weather, Phone, and iPod.

Re: Icon Needed :)

So it turns out there's a site that will generate the effect(s) I'm looking for: »www.iconj.com/iphone_style_icon_···ator.php

Above is what I finally settled on.

Thanks KittyMom See Profile for your efforts, I do appreciate it!

Here's a quick 3D glass button effect done in Photoshop. I can make the text 3D also but that would require a bit more effort.


Large transparent background


How it will look as an icon
