Application Icon Packs
Does anyone have a link to free icon packs for general app development i.e. save, open buttons.
Better yet, try:

It's fairly easy to make your own icons. After all if you are not goiing to use the standard buttons that came with the IDE then why use somebody else's
Thanks, Smitty. That was just what I needed:-)
Its easy to make icons, but then they tend to look as if they dropped out of a cereal packet circa 1963. Its very hard coming up with an icon that associates well with anything that doesn't need considerable explanation.
True enough, but why bother to change the standard save, open exit and other Widows icons in the first place.
Well, the main reason you'd want to change the standard icons is to fit in with all the rest in your app. Maintaining a consistent style throughout a product is important, and unless you want to do all of your app in the exam same style as the windows icons, I can't see that you have much choice.
Yea, but are you likely to get a consistent style from a pack of prefabrcated icons.
Oh sorry Stephen, i'd missed your point about if it was an app you'd be making your own anyway! I think because you spelt it "onw" and then my mind kind of spell-checked it out...
