    The only way you are going to do that, is, with the lasso tool, select the part of the icon that you would like.

    or try the magic wand tool and play with the settings (tolerance - I'd go with 50)

    clean it up with the eraser tool.

    ya use the eraser to get kinda close to the icons but dont erase anything too close to it. then use the magic wand tool and play around with the tolerance until it's erasing the right bit of the image and press delete.

    then use the rectangular selection tool to highlight just the icon and copy and paste to a smaller workspace then you've got just the icon.

    Ok, I cropped some other icons, did some other stuff, blah, blah, blah, and had to reboot. When my pc came back up, this is what shows. Why the heck didn't my icons stay. I spent several hours on them so I'm kinda pissed. The extensions on the one I made were all .ico's.

    I changed the icons by right-clicking them and choosing 'properties' > 'change icon' and then browsing to the folder I had the customized icons in.

    The IE one I changed by going to display properties > desktop tab > customize desktop.

    Strange...I don't remember moving them...but the path was slightly different than the location...oh well, thx.

    Once I'm totally done with them, I'll post another screenshot.

    No, just the photoshop icon, no gray at all.

    I gotta figure out how to make the ico into a pdg though first. Wait a sec, how'd you do it? It looks like you used MSPaint.
