Designing Buttons for Windows 7 Applications

Read about the newest trends in making contemporary Windows Vista-style images for your products and Web portals.

Developing standalone application or developing an online project? Make sure your application looks current and contemporary by checking the graphics used against current standards. This text explains the latest trends in designing modern, good-looking graphics for your off-line and on-line projects.

With every new release of Windows, Microsoft updates guidelines for image designers. If you want your project look consistent with the newest Windows, it is essential to read and understand the guidelines.

Not getting much into technical details, Microsoft points out that Vista-style icons differ from previously used XP-style images in several ways. The drawing style of the new images becomes more realistic than cartoon-line XP icons, but still remains on the symbolic level without becoming too realistic. Microsoft also extends the standard by defining the maximum size of the icons to PNG-compressed 256x256 pixel images, effectively ensuring that programs look detailed on modern high resolution displays. Finally, Microsoft recommends that toolbar icons are optimized for smaller sizes, and advises that toolbar graphics bear enough visual distinctiveness even in their lowest resolutions. Toolbar icons in Windows Vista have no extra details such as shadows, and are flat with no perspective.

Well-designed and thought of graphics enhance the appearance of your programs, making them more consistent with Windows and third-party software installed on the userís PC. Great images improve usability and efficiency of software, making it faster to use and more intuitive through better communication of ideas through symbols. Good images make buttons and actions simpler to learn and to use day by day.

Vista Toolbar Icons are a set of stock application and toolbar icons designed in the new Windows Vista/7 style. Strictly adhering to all guidelines, the icons share common style, colors and gamma, and come in all standard resolutions, including the recently added 256x256 True Color format with semi-transparency. Vista Toolbar Icons can be used in programs designed for Windows Vista, as application or toolbar icons, on Web sites and on-line portals.
