Creating Graphics for Windows Vista Applications
Read about the newest trends in making contemporary Windows Vista-style buttons for your programs and Web sites.
Producing standalone application or developing a Web site? Ensure your project looks modern and contemporary by checking the glyphs used against current standards. This text explains the newest trends in drawing modern, good-looking graphics for your software and Web projects.
With every new version of Windows, Microsoft updates guidelines for image designers. If you want your product look consistent with the newest Windows, it is essential to read and comprehend the guidelines.
Not going much into technical details, Microsoft points out that Vista-style icons differ from previously used XP-style graphics in several ways. The style of the new icons becomes more realistic than cartoon-line XP icons, but still remains symbolic without becoming too realistic. Microsoft also extends the icon format by defining the maximum size of the icons to PNG-compressed 256x256 pixel images, effectively ensuring that programs look well defined on modern hi-definition displays. Finally, Microsoft recommends that toolbar icons are optimized for smaller-size viewing experience, and advises that toolbar graphics bear enough visual distinctiveness even in their lowest sizes. Toolbar images in Windows Vista have no very little details such as shadows, and are flat with no perspective.
Well-designed and thought of images enhance the appearance of your programs, making them more consistent with Windows and third-party software installed on the userís PC. Good icons improve usability and efficiency of programs, making it faster to use and more intuitive through better communication of ideas through symbols. Good icons make buttons and actions simpler to learn and to use every day.
Vista Toolbar Icons are a set of ready-made application and toolbar icon images designed in the new Windows Vista/7 style. Strictly adhering to all guidelines, the icons share common style, colors and gamma, and come in all standard sizes, including the recently added 256x256 True Color format with semi-transparency. Vista Toolbar Icons can be used in products designed for Windows Vista, as application or toolbar icons, on Web sites and on-line portals.
