    My first question is why you see a need for text? Atleast for me, it's either just text icons or no text. Second is why you have the blue, why not just photoshop the blue out and make it transparent between text and icon, giving a contrast to whatever your background might be

    No. Those are not decent icons. Was my comment here not helpful? You need to build your icons on a base. Also, check out this thread. It's what helped me make my first icon. One last thing. If you are starting to learn photoshop, I sincerely urge you to read this. I got it from vipfreak's sig. It is one of the best tools you can learn in photoshop.
