Halo Pretty neat and detailed tutorial Skates.


Thanks Halo! I appreciate it. I know there's already a similar tutorial like this but it only shows you how to do a certain type of folder icons etc, & not your own image.
So I wanted to make this for people who wanna use any image they please, as its really easy to do so.
