Windows 8 Tiles (For Obly Tile) by lrv94 Windows 8 Tiles (For Obly Tile) by lrv94
I noticed that a lot of the icon ranges for Obly Tile were mainly geared towards Office and the CS6 suite, and that there weren't many custom tiles for system functions such as power off. I have also included a few system utilities and games, and this library will be growing.

If you would like a particular tile, please request it and I'll do my best to make it for you.

I have included versions of most of these tiles with no background, so that you can choose a background colour in Obly Tile, instead of using the one I have given you.

You can download Obly Tile here: [link]

Want to re-distribute these icons? Great, just make sure you link back here.

I have added the following tiles:
- iTunes
- Skype
- uTorrent
- Word
- Excel
- PowerPoint
- OneNote
- Outlook
- Publisher
- Access
- InfoPath
- Lync
- Visio

I have included no background versions of many of the tiles, this allows you to chose the background colour in Obly Tile instead of using my given colour, however I have done my best to include an appropriate colour, often taken from the original icon or logo.

They are pretty decent , a little bit outdated but its understandable for the time of upload. Ive start to metronize all the cool software icons out there. Ill make them systematically, releasing big pack for each software category. Ive started "bashfully" with 3D software field. They came out awesome and ultimate quality. Now Im focused on Office , Productivity, OCR, Desktop publishing stuff

Hi love the icons really good just wondering if you could do an "OblyTile" metro icon in your style and again if possible an icon for "Windows 8 Start Screen Customizer" [link]

Thanks again for the great icons

Wow so nice! I like it :)

All of CS6? Not just Photoshop

Cant wait to use them :)
lrv94 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013
I had some of the other CS6 icons made, I just didn't like them that much, so I'll probably end up re-doing them all when I get some time.

Looks great! Just one complaint/comment that's not too important: can you make sure that all the .DS_STORE and other files get deleted before you upload?
lrv94 Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2013
Up until very recently (after the latest update of this pack), I primarily used Photoshop on a Mac, but now I have a much more capable PC, so I can monitor the .DS_STORE files and remove them if they are created for what ever reason, however when using the Mac, this is near impossible as by default, any file starting with '.', is hidden, hence when I create the archive, I don't see the .DS_STORE files. I made this pack for a friend of mine who has Windows 8, and decided to share with everyone, it was simply one of those things that wasn't noticed.

you create the icon style meter eMule
linguaccia22 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
you could create a guide of how to create an icon like that?
Repurann Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012
Can you make a tile for Guild Wars 2 or Runescape please :)?

Why are the files encrypted?
lrv94 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
Windows says this, but they actually aren't. I use a Mac most of the time, and actually made these tiles for a friend, and decided to distribute them here. You should be able to click yes on the dialogue box that pops up.
Elmir91 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
Can you make icon for Sony Vegas and Sony SoundForge ?
lrv94 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
I'll do my best. I have a few other tiles to add too.

mhelseth93 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
These are absolutely amazing, I'm so glad I stumbled upon this program because it makes my user experience 10x better. These icons are just great though, Look amazing with the Windows 8 feel to them.
What more can I say except I hope you make more!!!
hannan100 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
These are really great! Since you asked for requests, is it possible you could make icons for Kerbal Space Program ([link]), Final Fantasy VII and/or maybe some icons for various emulators?

Regardless, great work.
uneek1ne Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
Agree Should make a bunch of them and put them into a pack of tiles like Skype,Photoshop,UTorrent,VLC Player, ITunes Just To Name a Few
flippinwindows Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012
These are by far the sexiest ones everaaaaa!!!!!! Make more please. Customization will never cease. I credited you on my Channel:

lrv94 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012
Awesome, than you. What would you like to see?
flippinwindows Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012
Just the popular Apps that are out there. The most commonly used apps. Like Tune up Utilities, Microsoft Security Essentials, Advance System Care Pro, Malwarbyes, Task Manager, Driver Max, Razer logo, or even a Game booster logo, Acronis True Image, VMware, Utorrent, Vegas Pro 12, Camtasia and Camtasia Recorder would be good. Do you have a Template you go by. Maybe I can see what I can do while you work on those. That would be great.
lrv94 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012
The way I make them is by creating a 256x256px document in Photoshop. I set up guides that mark the direct centre. I then take a logo/icon, and choose an appropriate background colour. I either trace (using the pen tool) or take parts from the logo, and centre them to make them into an appropriate icon.
