    Ive had a few goes at making icons, but I'm starting to learn the proper techniques for photoshop. I don't intend on turning this into a theme, but i would just like some criticism, good or bad

    Those look good. Do you have a link to a guide on how to make icons cause I would like to know how.

    The gloss makes the 'f' look a little off-centre. Apart from that, they're great icons

    Looks like the original but very good anyway. Have you tried making icons without the "apple gloss" I wish I could make icons, but I am stuck without ps

    They are very basic. Which is good and bad... For some odd reason, I don't like the glare. It looks "off". Try reversing the gradient on the glare, I don't know if it'll look any better.

    Keep posting icons. Are you using CS5 or CS4 at the moment?
