Badge N Stitches by OtisBee Badge N Stitches by OtisBee
well.. this is pretty much the same setup as in my previous screenshot


the main difference is that i've tinkered a bit more with the wallpaper
by using the Badge N Stitches from apple's iCloud.com website. [link]

besides, i cleaned up a bit the mess in my menubar,
added two Yahoo!Widgets and exchanged some of
the icons in my DragtThing dock at the bottom center.

i also have de-saturated the wall at the top and used
a different pattern on the bottom one.

and of course i'm using osx lion now.


RESOURCES |
- Obsidian Menu Bar by Max Rudberg
- Obsidian Menu Icon Template by Max Rudberg
- Informer Widget by Andy,Andy
- widescapeWeather Widget by Robert Wünsch
- SimpleOne-Dragthing by ~StefanKa (set to fully transparent)

WALLPAPER |
- selfmade dock- and iconbackgrounds
- badge and stitches graphics extracted from iCloud.com
- bottom wall pattern used from osx lion's default login screen and then colorized

APPS IN USE |
- Diaplaperture (for the round screen corners)
- DragThing (with settings to grayscale all icons)
- Yahoo!Widgets (for monitoring weather, time and HDD space)
- as well as a few others more, but which don't have an effect on how this screenshot looks


due to the fact that i'm using graphics from apple™, i unfortunately can't and won't share the wallpaper.
sorry!! :hmm:

anything else you wanna know?
just ask. :bucktooth::horns:

a tutorial on what exactly?
on how to arrange the various elements, hence the setup?
or on how i created/modified certain things in photoshop?

please, try to be a bit more specific and maybe try to sound a little less demanding. ;)
yeah, that'd be nice. thx. :peace:

I dont see why you cannot share the wallpaper, unless its officially from the Apple OSX Operating System
Shame, its really nice too :)

OtisBee Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2011   Interface Designer
thanks Dude! :w00t:

well, since i haven't created some elements used in the wallpaper myself, i basically don't own the copyright, which then again forbids me to share or redistribute what's not mine. it doesn't make any difference where i got those elements from. i haven't created them and as a consequence i'd be infringing on someone else's copyright.

and that's in disregard to whether i'd use something from a big company such as apple, or from just the next random private person. copyright is copyright and it doesn't even need to be claimed to be copyright protected. it just is by default, unless stated otherwise by the company or creator.

sorry. ;)

put like that its more than obviously easy to understand.. :o looks great non-the-less ... :) seems to me, usually people are more than willing to share their creations and such, I might have to crop it and remedy my own lol - ya gotta bend the rules sometimes, no offense. your work is still explicitly yours and still just as awesome!

no offense taken. :pat: :peace:

i know what you mean with bending the rules and i'm sure that nobody will probably ever come to sue me for sharing some graphical elements from a site, which aren't even online anymore.

but then again, for me it's not a matter of being caught or not. being a designer myself, i simply respect the rules, hence the properties of someone else. using them for my own personal purposes is fine. but sharing them is a completely different story.

besides, i'm also a moderator and currently a community volunteer (CV) as well, which makes people somewhat "look up" to me, and i just don't want to be a bad example, you know.

anywho.. feel free to crop and use whatever you like for your own usage and thanks for the wonderful feedback towards my work, Dude! :hug:

Absolut genial... Wie hast Du die linke Seite mit der vertikalen Bar gemacht?? Cool...
Reply
:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2011   Interface Designer
oh, vielen dank! :woohoo:

die vertikale bar habe ich mit photoshop gemacht.
sie besteht im prinzip aus zwei teilen und ist teil des wallpapers.
die abgerundeten tab-mäßigen quadrate hinter den icons und
die vertikale linie, welche die icons von den tab-namen trennt.

bei den quadraten habe ich viel mit halb-durchsichtigen farbverläufen von weiss zu komplett transparent rumprobiert. und die linie gibt den quadraten und der ganzen bar mehr tiefe durch einen schatten effekt auf der linken und einen blassen helleren schimmer auf der rechten seite dieser linie.

das ganze hab ich dann als mein wallpaper gespeichert. die icons selbst werden dann von DragThing [link] auf meinen desktop und die bar gebracht. als basis skin habe ich mit ~StefanKa's SimpleOne-Dragthing Theme angefangen und es dann irgendwann für mein jetziges setup auf vollkommen transparent gestellt. die entsprechenden einstellung für die iconabstände, -grössen, -farben und dergleichen habe ich alle in DragThing vorgenommen.

die icons habe ich übrigens mit IconBox [link] an meine bedürfnisse angepasst. :)

frag mich, wenn du noch irgendwas genauer wissen willst.
und nochmals vielen dank. :boogie:

Looks great! Do you know any dock for Mac that looks like in your screenshot?
This one is just a part of the wall, correct? I would like to have that look for my dock.. :)

OtisBee Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011   Interface Designer
unfortunately i don't, but danke für das kompliment. :D

es stimmt, das dock in meinem screenshot ist in der tat teil des wallpapers.
etwas ähnliches als regulären dock skin zu machen, könnte knifflig werden, da (soweit ich weiss) die grafiken für ein jeweiliges dock quasi flach und perspektivisch unverzerrt erstellt werden müssen, und dann wird von der dock.app selbst das ganze dann in "schräglage" gebracht. komplikationen würde es da bei meinem dock mit den äusseren (kurzen) seiten geben, weil ich nicht weiss, wie man die im flachen 2-dimensionalen stil aussehen lassen müsste, damit sie später dann noch perspektivisch korrekt aussehen.

andererseits habe ich mich aber auch noch nie an einem tatsächlichen dock skin (für die dock.app) versucht und so sind dies lediglich meine unqualifizierten vermutungen.

was bleibt, ist somit also nur der tip, bei den üblichen verdächtigen wie iconpaper [link] oder natürlich hier auf deviantART [link] nach einem netten dock zu buddeln.

sorry.

trotzdem freue ich mich, dass dir mein dock so gut gefällt, sodas du es am liebsten auch haben möchtest. vielen dank. :lol:

Ok, danke für die Antwort!

Auf iconpaper und hier habe ich schon nach Docks gesucht. Ich habe auch bei Dribble geschaut und bin dadurch auf dein "Spooki Dock"gestossen. ;)
Da dachte ich noch es wäre ein "echtes" Dock. :)

und die DragThing lösung wie in meinem screenshot kommt für dich nicht in frage?
okay, es sind knapp 30$ für DragThing, aber ich wär bereit, dir mein dock für deine zwecke zur verfügung zu stellen.
kannst ja mal drüber nachdenken. ;)

Hi! I'm sorry if this a stupid question, but how did you get your Dragthing icons to draw in grayscale? I cannot find that setting for the life of me.
Reply
:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2011   Interface Designer
well, it's a setting in DragThing's main preferences.
my DT is in german, so i don't know the exact phrasing of the terms used.
select the second icon from the left (should read something like "appearance" or so).
then, in the right column under "Symbols" (or "Icons" maybe) you should find the "greyscale" option.

here is a screenshot of how the settings look in my DT preferences. ;)

Sadly I don't have any of those options :( The only icon options they have in the english version seem to be what size you want them and if you want them with or without a reflection :( I don't have half the options you do. I'm wondering if it's a version thing?
Reply
:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012   Interface Designer
hmm, that's odd. :confused:
what version do you have? mine is 5.9.9.
you haven't confused the dock settings with the main DT preferences, have you?
the greyscale option is an applicationwide setting, so it's in the apps main prefs accordingly.

i guess with all the various settings for dock, layer and main it's fairly easy to lose track of where everything is located. in fact, i'm often having trouble in finding certain settings myself. :D

anyways.. i'm glad i could help. thanks for your kind words of appreciation. ;)

copy the URL from that link i gave you and paste it in a new browser window.
once the image shows up, just rightclick on it and save it.
it's just an image and not a skin file, so you'd have to manually place it on your wallpaper (in photoshop or Gimp or so).

if that doesn't help, then i'm afraid i can't help you. sorry. ;)
