    like how it says iPod on the top left. yes i know its a .png and not a text file, so what easy way is there to quickly create a .png that will replace iPod?

    photoshop is good too, but it blurs a little more than i'd like when shrinking text down to a certain size

    I used Photoshop. They key isn't to create a big image and shrink it, but to just work with a file at the original size 100px by 20px.

    Just zoom in on Photoshop, the text size you'll want is between 6 - 8 depending on font, the closest/easiest one to the iPod font is Arial.

    myriad pro is good too (think it might be closer to the stock iPod image that came on the ipod)
