MobyDock, Y'z Dock, ObjectDock etc.
The dock programs can now use icons as well as PNG files. If you prefer to use PNGs you can convert any icon to PNG format using IconWorkshop
Don't send me any questions asking how to use or configure any of the dock programs.
I don't know anything about using them.

Using the icons on Win98/Me/Nt/2000 etc.
The icons on this site are 32 bit alpha blended. They are suitable for Windows XP, Mac OSX & Linux (not every icon set is available for Mac OS X & Linux).
They are not suitable for older Windows OSs (e.g. Win98/Me/Nt/2000 etc.)

 

Photoshop:
Record actions & use keyboard shortcuts for anything you do often in Photoshop.
Resizing icons sizes, changing opacity (transparency), rotating & resizing icons, merging/unmerging layers etc...

 

Converting Mac OSX icons:
To convert Mac OSX icons uncompress them using Stuffit Expander & then use IconWorkshop to convert the icons to Windows .ico format.
Make sure Stuffit Expander has the cross platform settings (Edit, Options, Cross Platform) matching the pic below.
(Only works with Stuffit Expander 7.5, not version 8).

GIF Movie Gear:
If your dragging a dropping quite a few icon sizes into GMG (e.g. 128x128, 72x72, 64x64, 48x48, 32x32, 24x24 & 16x16) drag & drop the largest icon size (128x128) then select all the other icon sizes in one go & drag them over to GMG.
This way you'll drag & drop twice instead of seven times.

 

XP Folders:
IconBuilder XP makes better XP folder icons than GIF Movie Gear
[it reproduces the shadow almost exactly the same as the original Microsoft folders].

Finding Pics:
If you need to find a pic to turn into an icon go to Google or AltaVista & select the images tab.
You should be able to find what you're looking for there.
