Adobe Creative Suite 3 Icons

Adobe CS3 Icon Pack

After a few weeks of hard work, here’s the finalised version of the Adobe Creative Suite 3 Icon Pack! They basically contain the icons for almost every applications that came bundled with Adobe Creative Suite 3.

Did it just came out of the blue?

The answer is, no. I was browsing through the web doing some digging on Photoshop and Dreamweaver icons when I stumbled upon this excellent tutorial on Tutorialfx.com. The tutorial teaches you how to make use of the inner glow and the border effects to create icons that mimic the style of the official icons.

The icons are made using Axialis IconWorkshop, and are converted to various formats using the same programme as well. For details regarding the formats, please refer to the section below.

What comes bundled in this pack?

The icons for the following Adobe CS3 applications are included in this pack. In alphabetical order, we have icons for:

  • Acrobat Reader
  • Bridge
  • Dreamweaver
  • Flash
  • Illustrator
  • In Design
  • Photoshop
  • Stock Photos

These are the major applications in the CS3 so that’s what I’ve created icons for them. The colours of my icons are directly sampled from the original icons so they should appear more or less the same as the original icons, except for the glossy Web2.0 style added to the icons in this pack.

There are a total of 48 files in the icon pack, exclusive of the Readme.txt file. There are two styles for the icons – those with rounded corners and those that are square. File types are described as follow:

1) .ICO extension (Windows).

  • 32*32px – XP
  • 48*48px – XP
  • 256*256px – XP + Windows Vista (embedded PNG compression)

2) .ICNS extension (Macintosh)

  • 32*32px – RGB/Alpha
  • 48*48px – RGB/Alpha
  • 128*128px – RGB/Alpha
  • 256*256px – RGB/Alpha

3) .PNG image format – 256*256px only. The purpose of the inclusion of PNG files is to allow the icons to be used for other purposes besides replacing icons of the Adobe CS3 programmes – you can use it for webdesign purposes and etc.

Here is a rough and brief description of the style of a typical icon in this pack:
