  • can anyone rip the emoticons from windows messenger in xp?

    i tried doing this, but i didnt do such a good job, those icons are real nice, i ripped most of them but when you see it on a dark page, there is still some white around it and it looks nasty... can anyone do this for me real good? i have the jpg file if you guys need it with a whole row of the emoticons.

              Do you have a link to where to download these from or did they just get pulled from a messenger install?

                      If I get time I will work on em some more. As they are now they are rough cuts, turned into transparent background. I didn't have the time to blend some of the colors, when I get time I will work on em some more unless someone else does it. They should work fine on lighter backgrounds for now. I will post em here when I get em done.

                              Well I am trying to make sure everything is totally legal with regards to copyright and such and I have come across this on Microsoft's site.

                              Icons
                              Microsoft does not generally allow the use of our icons in advertising, in books and other printed matter, on clothing or other promotional items, on-line and internet locations, in software applications, in television programs, commercials, movies, or on video tape, as they are NOT to be used as "artwork" or design elements.

                              EXCEPTIONS: Use of our icons is permissible in relation to a training manual or documentation written for and/or about a Microsoft product. In such cases, use of Microsoft icons must be specific to the function of the icon within the Microsoft software, and not used as a graphical element or design for your own purposes. Further, icons cannot be modified or altered and must appear as they would within the Microsoft software.

                              In addition, Software developers (ISV’s) may be allowed to use icons specifically provided in Microsoft Software Development Kits (SDK’s) and certain other programming tools and applications, (like Visual Basic or Visual C++), provided the use of icons is specifically covered in the Microsoft End User License Agreement (EULA). Please carefully review your EULA and other product documentation to determine your rights to use Microsoft icons. You may also wish to note that Microsoft Press has recently released the Microsoft® Management Console Design and Development Kit, ISBN 0-7356-1038-X. Redistribution rights for certain icons are granted under the EULA. Please visit
                              I found that here:
                              http://www.microsoft.com/permission/...-img.htm#Icons

                              So I am guessing that if I want to use icons in the future, I should get them from the SDK's?
