    My first tutorial, and the only one existing on the internet.

    What you'll need:

    Pixelmator (http://www.pixelmator.com) [$60]
    Picturesque (http://www.acqualia.com/picturesque/) [$30}

    If you're short on money, you can always find spare serial codes (NOT THAT I DO SUPPORT PIRATING), or redeemable coupons for these programs. Together, they make up a good suite just like Adobe Photoshop CS3/CS4. And cheaper as well.

    Now watch the video here:

    I'm glad you made a tutorial and all that jazz, but you can make a better icon than that

    Why don't you just drag n' drop your square image file into Microsoft Publisher Mac 2007 and click "format" then "shape"

    More or less.
    CS3 is more powerful and such.
    But I definitely recommend Gimp
