New Director Icon

January 12th, 2007

I know I’m late to posting about this, but…the new Adobe icons for the next generation of products was revealed back in December.

When I saw this the first thing I thought about was a periodic table of the elements (particularly the circular form of the table).

While looking around for the circular form, I found a site that has a nice periodic spiral that was created in Director (just click on the pretty picture).

If you can’t figure out what every icon represents there is a nice page at Flickr that has a note attached to each icon. How many of the Adobe icons also represent chemical elements? At a casual glance I see 7…but I could be wrong. Why seven? Is that for luck? Now I need to think of a cool chemical name for Di.

    good luck! I’ve visited the ExploreLearning site several times and gotten caught up in some of the experiments on pendulums and other science stuff. It’s one of the best examples of “hands on” science on the web, in my opinion.

    Still a novice in many areas – I have been waiting for this as it is actually being gifted to me. Looking forward to the next challenge.

    I am amazed how fast thing change – OR update as it were…

    Off to see the Wizard… ah – Director’s icon.

    Anyone know how to correctly replace the director 11 icons?

    The icon group misses the declaration of icon resource 5 and 8, making it impossible to replace them with reshack…

    Anyone know a tool that manages to replace it? Or some other way?

    Thanx in advance,
