Solved: Getting A Modern Glass/Gradient Effect For A Logo?

Q: Solved: Getting A Modern Glass/Gradient Effect For A Logo?

I have attached the basic platform to a new logo that I am working on, but I would like to add an effect to it that I have seen used on numerous other graphics, such as this one:

As you can see with the above logo, it uses some type of gradient effect to give it an almost glass appearance, from where the pink transforms to the red.

With my attached logo, I would like a similar effect used on the black area, using whatever colours would suit. Essentially, I would like the black area of the attached logo to appear (like the logo above) to have a reflective and smooth glass surface.

Any help on instructions on how to do this, or if anyone has the time to do it themselves, I would greatly appreciate it.

I am trying to create a magnifying glass effect on an image, and found this website tutorial. I've followed the steps several times and still can't get the desired effect...obviously I'm missing something. (I'm beginning to think that "missing something" is my middle name!) I don't see that I'm really getting an image on the focus layer. Any ideas?

When you make the selection of the inside of the glass, make sure that the background layer is selected, before you make the layer from selection; ctrl + J.

You hover over the "Show desktop" object in the bottom right corner and it temporary displays the desktop with an affect simulating looking through glass.

This effect seems locked inside of my skinned objects even after a reboot or by changing themes. Where objects should be solid and gradient, they have this effect over them. I highlighted the most obvious examples in the included attachment.

Any ideas?

I have Vista Home Basic and i installed Windows Blinds 6.
I tried appyling one of the custumed themes that it has but every time i do this my taskbar(where the start menu button is) goes classic-style. And I do not see the "blur" or the "glass effect" on menus that I am supposed to see. How come? I have a Dell 1501.

I have XP too and i have Windows Blinds 6 and its not showing the effect there either.

Both Operating systems are on the same Laptop (dual booting) and since none of them is working (glass effect) im thinking its a problem with my laptop and nt operating system. I probably must do something with a file or so to let my laptop display the glass effect.

Any help please?

My aero seems to be bugged. I know it can't be a problem with my graphics card because aero works fine, usually when i modify the graphics driver (re-installing it, updating it) until i reboot my computer. When I turn my computer back on, the task bar just ends up looking a dull blue/grey colour and does not change no matter what theme I use, aero or not.

I dont have the option to turn on transparency when I hit windows colours, I dont even get the new menu interface I just get the old fashioned interface


Please help me if you can, I found the transparency/glass effect very impressive. I have searched many forums before I came here and I've tried all the suggested solutions and none have worked so far. (except re-installing my video drivers, which i don't want to have to do every time I boot up)

PS this is one of 3 bugs I am having problems with so far.. is it just because this OS is new or is it my machine? I'm running the 64-bit version

I had the same problem with the aero effect. At the bottom of the personalization there the troubleshoot icon. The way i fixed mine was to install the latest video driver for my laptop. First i uninstall the current video driver by going to device manager and click on video go driver and uninstall.
Then find and install the new vista video driver. Hope that help.

im currently running the clearscreen sharp theme by k-johnson and was wondering if i decided to make my own, is it possible to remove the white lines u see behind the taskbar and the blur aswell? ive used the utilities which removes blur from the whole theme such as behind the close buttons etc but its too difficult to read with more than one window open.

i plan on making the taskbar look sort of like a dock.. but id want to remove the background, the white lines and the blur so it doesnt look weird where the spaces between the start button and time etc are.

A:Removing Glass effect and blur from taksbar?

I don't think there's any way to clear blur on the taskbar alone, ie leaving other parts of the system unaffected. The 'white lines' can be removed though it's not a straightforward procedure and will require the use of Style Builder (sadly not free!)

i just recently installed windows 7 on my laptop and can't get the really cool glass effect to work. when i restarted my computer once, as soon as i logged on it said it changed to windows 7 basic, i clicked on the little link and it said there was some program running in the background that couldnt support windows aero and i had never heard of it, and cant find out how to close it. my computer has a 3.3 WEI in graphics and gaming graphics, and 2 GB of ram. also everytime i try to change it back to aero it just does nothing and stays in basic, any suggestions??

Photoshop CS4: Glass Effect on Text and Images
Ends up looking like this:

Step 1: Open Photoshop

Step 2: Open an image and write the text and/or place the picture

Step 3: Go to Layers, and duplicate the layer with the text/image

Step 4: After that Rasterize the layer

Step 5: Go to edit, click on Transform and select "Flip Vertical"

Step 6: Use the moving tool to put the image where you want the glass effect to be.

Step 7: Select the "Rectangular Marquee Tool"

Step 8: Select some of the text and hit delete.

Now you should have a glass effect below your text/Image

It's better to use the White/Black gradient tool. That way, it looks like it's fading/reflecting, instead of having the glass effect just cut off.

I read a old topic in sevenforums about Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Reflections > Main by Bongo, and try to custom this effect. Here's one of some tests.

I notice if I use the desktop resolution image (HD for example) then the png provides sharper details on windows glass, but is so heavy (large filesize) and it make whole msstyle 4-5x bigger than original (sometimes, as I tested the HD png with complex transparency could cause Aero peek hangs windows for awhile, even in minutes). If I want smaller size, I will use smaller png but it'll make windows glass upscaled and looks bad on screen (default Aero one is good but quite hard to make the cracked glass as small and still looks well upscale/stretch).

So traditionally, I think the solution would be using a tilable/seamless texture for that image but how to set such properties in Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Reflections > Main on W7styleBuilder? Is there such a propeties as tile in this place. Or it's unavailable?

Hi all,

I installed Windows 7 for the first time over the weekend and would like to know how to remove the "glass" effect on the taskbar icons, similar to what is described in this thread:Can the HORRIBLE 'glass' effect be removed?
Unfortunately modifying the ColorizationGlassReflectionIntensity entry in the registry which was identified in the thread does not seem to work, even after relogging and / or rebooting.

I do not want to go back to the classic theme, just want the diagonal gradients removed. Mainly because I have multiple instances of an application open at the same time, and it isn't intuitive looking at the taskbar which one is active. Would like to either specify a completely different color for the active application or get rid of the gradients.

WindowBlinds figured out a way to do it, but that package causes all sorts of other problems with other applications (Thunderbird 5.0 for one). I had to manually block many apps to get it to work right. Also it needs to run in the background. Uninstalled it almost immediately.

I was just curious although I doubt there is any way to have my cake and eat it too when it comes to the alluring and sexy "Glass Windows 7 Themes," however no harm in asking. So I constantly am using themes such as Vs Se7en, U-7 ultimate theme etc basically themes that use black glass and I also use some of the brighter themes that work with Full Glass. The themes work for me the windows folders such as documents, videos etc..have the desired "glass see through effect," the problem is everything else.
For Example Chrome, the Navigation Bar is now black and even when changing things such as default font or font color its hard to read. Other times when typing in certain things the letters just are not there. Programs are another issue, a lot suddenly have a black background so if it is something like Revo Uninstaller were the font used is black you can no longer read anything, and besides that it just looks terrible. After all customizing are Windows is all about making sleek sexy desktops in what I like to call "how can my computer look more Tony Stark and Less everything else, cause everything else is not as cool therefore it is terrible"

Well any suggestions or ideas would be great or just to here other opinions on this in the community.
Thanks in advance for any information.

I have a logo that I want to give to my embroiderer to put on a shirt.
She does not know how to convert and requires me to provide the logo to her in the DST or EMB format.
Does anyone here know how to do that?

I have attached 2 JPGs.
The 1st is the logo to be placed on the shirt.
The 2nd is a closeup of the area on the shirt where is the logo should be stitched. I think the logo should not be wider than 3-1/2 inches.

I would like to see the outline of the car to be assigned a separate thread number, so that the outline can be white thread on a dark fabric, while the other emblems can still retain their black outline.
Im not sure if that means that 2 spools of black thread has to be installed on the sewing machine, when sewing onto lighter colored fabric.

So the way I see it their should be up to 5 thread colors.
1- Car Outline. this can be either BLACK or WHITE.
2- Bowtie - GOLD
3- SS - GRAY
4- R - RED
5- Black Outline for the bowtie, SS, and R.

Hopefully this makes sense to somebody.
Thank you in advance.

I want to upgrade my PC's monitor. I'm currently using a 23" monitor and it's just not large enough for me.

I'm thinking of getting a 27" monitor. But I'm also wondering about getting a new TV instead (one with a 40" display) and using that TV as a monitor for my PC. I've heard that I can use a modern TV as a monitor for my PC by using an HDMI cable input.

Does anyone know of any problems associated with using a modern TV as a monitor for the PC?

A monitor that is any larger than 27" can cost thousands of dollars, whereas I can get a new 40" TV now for around $300.

So, my interest is strictly price. Can I truly expect to be able to use a 40" TV as a monitor for my PC? I'd really love to have a monitor that was that large.

I'd very much appreciate if anyone here has any first-hand experience with this and can advise me. Are there any problems that you know of in using a TV as a monitor?

I'm not really looking to use the same TV both as a TV and a monitor for my PC and switching between the two. I'm just looking to get a larger display for my PC than my current 23" monitor.

Would anyone know if there are any problems with doing this?

I recently upgraded to Windows 7, I have been using my Dell E207WFP flawlessly with Windows XP for about 3 years now. I use the monitor with a PC I built myself and i've never once had a problem with it.
Since my upgrade to Windows 7 i've had extreme gradient banding, I cannot explain it very easily but dark gradients are just so badly banded, there is lines instead of a smooth gradient. I installed all updates I could find, I've tried to do all tests I can possibly do and configured my gamma etc. I'm not new to PCs so I really have gone deep down into the techy stuff to try and fix this but I'm completely out of ideas now. The banding is unbearable, no dark gradient is near smooth; it's just horrible but I never had this issue with XP. I am aware Win7 has a lot more visual options and i've gone through these to try and fix it but I just cannot do it.

If anyone has any ideas or tips i'd appreciate it, thanks a lot.

I have used PowerDesk for many years. It is a file manager with all the capabilities of Windows Explorer and many more, most notably a file viewer. It's far more useful and configurable than Explorer.

I still use it every day. But it's about 10 yrs old, is somewhat flaky under Vista and the latest WinXP, and is no longer supported with upgrades. It is especially prone to lockup when trying to view or open a pdf.

So far I haven't been able to locate a latter year replacement or modern equivalent. Does anyone know of such a product? A freebie would be nice, but I'm ready and willing to pay for a modern product with all the capabilities (and maybe more) of the original PowerDesk.

I want a phone that does these 2 things extremely well. High quality audio and texting technology.

1. Superior high quality audio. That includes a microphone, and a dynamic audio range speaker. As well as the means to transfer the voice data effectively.
2. Advanced texting program. I want the software to make sense, user tested. I don't want any delays, I want the backspace button to work immediately, I don't want my messages accidentally sending either. I don't want a full qwerty keyboard either. I can text just as fast with the numeral keyboard, with the auto-fill key strokes as well as saving the word to the phones dictionary.

Other important basics: Long battery life, which should be easily attainable with the stripped basic/advanced features. (some say bluetooth and camera are now basic features). Phone should be durable, buttons not easily broken, screen not easily scratched, easy to remove battery and sim card.
That's it! I don't want internet, bluetooth, camera, voice record or commands, usb port, flashlight, etc - IF: it interferes with the first 2 things I want.

I think a key problem with this is that it is 'few and far in-between' with people who would want this. Maybe demand isn't high enough.

Do you agree or disagree? Would you use this phone?

I bought a Parallel-to-USB adaptor for my old HP Laserjet 6MP and connected it to my Toshiba laptop, USB port, running Windows Vista. The printer installed automatically with standard Vista files and is recognized as "ready to use", but does not print. I've tried a few things: using the "postscript driver"; assigning different ports. I have bi-directional printing turned off, as I read that might be an issue. I also tried turning off enhanced printer functions. I just try to print a test page, and the job stays in the queue, finally giving me a printing error. Windows tech support website says the printer is compatible (but that is probably if you have a parallel port on a desktop sytem); HP tech support implies USB may not be supported by this printer.
Any ideas? I like this printer; excellent quality. As I read somewhere, it was perhaps accidentally overengineered.

A:Solved: HP Laserjet 6MP on modern laptop USB port

I forgot to check the paper tray. It had just printed a self test page, so I thought it had paper.

Whoops! Sorry for anyone that started on this wild goose chase.

Recently purchased the game and installed on computer. I don't see a way on the game options to auto update, so I went on Google looking for patches. Looks like they are up to 1.7, but it is 32 mb. My question: Do I have to start with patch 1.1, and work my way up to patch 1.7? Infinity could have done a much better job with updating their game. Thanks for any assistance that you can provide.
