Shotwell Icon by DanRabbit Shotwell Icon by DanRabbit
Playing with ideas for an icon for Shotwell.

Suggestions welcome.

You can branch the icon here if you'd like to play around with it, help me scale it, etc: [link]

't'would be awesome if this became default. I think a green landscape as apposed to the red flower might be nice (I'll be making my own fork). Thanks, Dan!

Oh hell yeah, that would totally work. I like the design of their website and iconography okay, but I think stuff like this could be the default. It's all logical, sensible, and distinct- very good job.

In my opinion, the lense is a bit too blue and maybe the photograph could contain more details

Hmm... still not so sure about the lens part.
Or maybe I'm just too used to the way Aperture, Camera+ and others present it (i.e. details such as the color, reflection, etc)

Why don't you stick with the shotwell original colors. RGB. The Back stays Blue, the front pic is green and the camera hue red, (but then again it might look like a record button than a camera) either way it would state still life. Always on. Always remembering.
The thing is i like the format and structure of the icon but the icon could still stay intact with the original. Giving reference and honor. That's just me though. Love the work.

Pretty :)

But I feel like the flower should be larger. And the camera lens looks purple. Shouldn't it be more blue or white?

Nice and clean although that camera just reminds me of the new facebook camera icon....

Maybe because the Facebook Camera icon is modeled after a phone's camera and my camera is modeled after the camera on my iPhone :p

I think it would be clearer if the lens had some more detail. How about adding it an aperture? It's something very recognizable. [link] Also, the flower could use some more detail, I suppose you made it kind of fast there. Other than that, it's great!

Gave some more detail to the lens, not sure what to do for the glyph yet.

Maybe a landscape instead of a flower? A sunset could go well with orange, or a mountain if you put the blue picture on front.

If Yorba accepts it upstream, it'll go there. But if not, I'll put it in the theme.

Either way we will use it. But I really hope it does become official. Once again, great job!!!!!

It would be a default icon for shotwell ? Or only icon in elementary OS icons set ? :-)

I'd love to push it upstream if the Yorba guys are interested. But if not, it'll just go into the theme :)

You could add a bit of detail to the lens and, huh, think about what colours are still unused in your icons to give it a bit more of originality. I don't know if you get what I mean (i.e. Beatbox is orange, Yorba is yellow, Marlin is blue... maybe a bit of purple or brown for Shotwell?)

Agreed. The lens could use some more detail (and perhaps a little bigger?)

That's right, otherwise it looks more like a speaker.

I hope Dan will see these comments .

Maybe you should add a third picture to keep with yorba's whole red-green-blue thing.

No, I don't want to do that, it'd be too noisy, I think. But I could change the pictures to red/green and tint the lens more blue.

I love the whole orangy feel to it. Maybe don't do it, 'cuz that'll make this icon lose its colour identity. Change the colours to something else maybe, but avoid the primary ones. Every icon should be distinguishable with their colour aswell, instead of being a RGBY mashup everytime. For logos, such things dont matter 'cuz they aren't used as much as desktop icons.
