W7Orb Blue and Home +Start Orb by asianlucas W7Orb Blue and Home +Start Orb by asianlucas
Hi!
So i only recently got into this whole idea of customizing the Windows 7 theme. I've always wanted to go nuts with it! Here's two of the start orbs that i'm quite proud of, which I'm also going to share with you guys! When i made these, i made them to fit my current theme which you can find in the readme or down below!

Instructions
The package includes versions for left, right, top and bottom taskbar alignments.

Following files presented in the .zip package:
W7Orb Blue Style (Left+Right).bmp

np, I'm trying the new Windows 8.1 Beta and all though I'm one of the people that actually really like the start screen idea, I also do like the classic start menu and I was able to use your orb with classic shell and now I get both :)

The blue orb looks soo awesome :+fav:

Could you create a version of the orb without the thick dark border (for bright taskbars)?

I've tried removing the border, but on the orb itself, I've added a thin dark border, to contrast it from the baggrund and make it blend it better. However, when I remove the thick border, it really doesn't look good, especially on a light background. I'm 'fraid it's not something I'm willing to finish for use.

If i understood your question correctly, I've made an additional file where the passive (top home) takes the look of the passive home when clicked on. Here's the file :)

Sure! I've updated the package and included .png files. Unfortunately due to my bad organizing in the Home .psd file, I could only include the .png file for Left&Right taskbar alignment.

Awesome! <3 Love the glow on the orb to the left >_< but personally would use the one to the right, because i like something super simpel and not mainstream <3 Good job! Wish i was as good to graphic as u :I !

Hah, thankies. I tried making a pink one today. The pink color doesn't seem to fit the reflective/glowy style. I've tried a few other colors too, but the contrast becomes really bad at those low resolutions D:
