• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

* This assumes you have access to a computer with some kind of Photoshop (a trial download of Photoshop will work wonderfully) *

If you have a Mac with iPhoto, you can customize it so that it shows your camera when you connect it.

It's simple, just right-click the app in the Finder, and select "Show Package Contents". Then navigate to a folder called Resources. There are three files that we are interested in: import_camera.tiff (128*94 pixels), sl-icon_camera.tiff (20*20), and sl-icon-small_camera.tiff (16*16).

1. Find a picture of your camera on the web, open it in Photoshop, and resize it so it fits in the 128*94 blank, transparent file you just created. Use the Magic Eraser tool to erase everything in the picture that isn't your camera. Save it as import_camera.tiff to the Desktop or wherever you'll be able to find it. Do the same with the other images. (note the two f's in .tiff)

2. Now copy the contents of the file you just created into a 20*20 pixel blank, transparent file. Resize the camera so it fits in the image frame. Save this file as sl-icon_camera.tiff.

3. Copy the contents of sl-icon_camera.tiff into a new blank, transparent file with dimensions 16*16. Resize to fit. Save the file as sl-icon-small_camera.tiff.

4. Find the stock images in the Resources folder. You can either move them into another folder as a back-up, or just drop the new pics in and replace the stock ones with yours.

Here is what my iPhoto looks like now:


If you have a Sony DSC-P1XX or -2XX, here are the pics you need.

This one has a black background because that's what I use and, when I made this pic, I had not found Magic Eraser yet.





You just need to save these files as [name].tiff in TIFF format with Preview and put them in the Resources folder.

You can customize virtually any app to your liking. For example,

After:


I guess this should be in Hacks & Mods.
