Try adding an adjustment layer and bring the brightness down.
P.S Some Orbs only look good against a dark background (like mine!)
Hope this helps :D

hi there!

just modified my orb...great tutorial...easy as 1-2-3!

im also getting the black square when i hover over the start button...could you explain how to get rid of this please?

also, windows seems to put the icons with a little transparency by default...so the wallpaper kinda messes the icons up...any way to get over this?

thanks!

You have to use .bmp images for the start orb, .png will not work.
I wrote a tutorial not long ago which covers installing custom start orbs.

ok. I saw your tutorial but how do I make my own start button? The tutorial only teaches me how to apply yours or deviant art's. please tell me how to make my own custon orb.
