THE guide of guides to convert your icons into reflective ones...

1. Download GNU Image Manipulation Program.... the GIMP... Here

2. Now download the reflection script here

3. Unpack the reflection script and place it at C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\scripts

4. Start up GIMP and go to Filthers -> Decor -> Reflection

5. Gratz, you should now have a reflected icon... not as pretty as a hand-made photoshop but surely a lot easier (and cheaper)


NOTE: I have only tried reflecting .png and .ico and .png works, .ico doesn't

^^ The answer is yes. When you save the png, it can be displayed in OD


Good tutorial because not everyone can afford to buy Photoshop....
