A very simple dock icon taken directly from iChat, Apple is the real genius behind this one.

Whilst connecting the icon fades from blue to grey in a breathing-like manner. (Note that the illustrative connecting image below is an animated-gif, a technology which (if you're sensible) is probably disabled in your browser. The gif is also a yuky 76KB... sorry.)

This is my first attempt at an Adium icon, I just did what I wanted to see in a dock icon. Feel free to make suggestions.


Slightly different connecting animation. A bit more breathing-like.

This is different from the others, by the way.

Wonderful - simplistic, minimalistic, and a great blend in with OSX without having to use something overly colorful!

Cheers - that's what I was going for.

I like it, but sadly I must continue my quest for the perfect iChat rip-off.

Out of interest, what do you think would make the perfect iChat rip-off?

# by BlackandWhitePenguin on 02/06/07 at 19:21:36

Well, I insist on my dock being entirely blue so it would have to be blue in all its states. I would want it to be vibrant (you accomplish that well) and I would overall want it to be really classy (again, this one gets pretty good marks).

Well, a few months back I made one identical to iChat i.e., no animation, no extra colours. This is what I use right now, but I never actually submitted it here; until now. I just posted it but it'll take a few days to appear. I have also emailed you a copy, if you're interested in getting an early viewing. Hee hee.

I think there is another one of those on the site, which is what I use. I'll take a look at yours.

# by bonniejonnie on 02/06/07 at 19:48:15

There is, but the quality isn't quite right. That's why I made my version.

Yours is nice but its a little bit faded so I'm sticking with the old one. Thanks for sending it to me though.

I like it. I switched from iChat for various reasons, and I find this to be a very good icon set-simple enought that it doesn't take up tons of visual space (which is useful because I have tons of stuff in my dock), but also nice-looking, well animated, and blends very well with OSX. Good one all around.
