Help on creating one of those FB style icon thingies


Hi Skokey (and everyone else),

I am trying to make a icon that is kinda like one of those FB icons. I made my image really big so I could see what I was doing in my image editor and thinking that when done all I would have to do was "re-size" the thing but every time I try that the corners end up looking wrong... What am I doing wrong?

I shrunk it in photoshop and it still looks good. I changed the resolution to 72 dpi and then the pixel dimension to 85 x 85 for this version.

So do you shrink it first and then change the resolution? I have created this graphic in 6 different colors so they can work as blanks for the image I want to place on top of them. When it is all said and done I will want to get their size down to 42x42 and 32x32 (a total of 12 images for a RB project idea I am working on).

42 x 42 - --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

and 32 x 32 - --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

The changing of resolution and pixel setting are both done in the same dialog box so it's like one step.
