Icon fun....

posted under by Pinheiro | Edit This
After mostly finishing the great folder redo in oxygen, and wile trying to achieve an effect in QML (trying to do a shutter like open/close animated effect), I ended up with a to fancy svg to let it rot on my hard drive, so, and if you have the shutter part done you can do the remaining bits, and that gives you.....
A icon, tadaaaaa! instant Fun :D.... or should I say instant DSLR fun :)...

That looks great! Are younstill trying to get the shutter animation with QML? It kinda sounds like in your post that you moved on to other things.

Znurre said...

Really awesome. Did you create that "noise" texture overlay in Inkscape too, or did you do that afterwards in GIMP or similar?

Nuno, 18 should read as 1.8 or 2.8...
Otherwise it is great

WarDron said...

It looks rather like 50 mm 1:1.4 (the marking is made in this order). Otherwise it is really cool.

Alessandro said...

Nice!!!

@Anonymous.... I stopped, i can almost do it .... but wen overlapping the different elements, the last one needs to go under the first one (and second one and third one as the shutter closes)....and to do that I would need
1 clipping to really work, (clipping as in shape) (method I used in inkscape works fine apart from a thin line that is visible)
2 Use 3d elements that actually behave like the shutter.
3 Open to different ideas....

@others, will fix the icon in the large sizes to be more (lens) accurate thanks

Does todays Qt Labs post about 3D QML support help?

Pinheiro said...

@Anonymous yes 3d is the way to go to do this, I will need to learn some opengl magic dough.

And BTW opengl is a bit out of the graphic/designers league, and what I been trying to do is create nice effects I can teach fellow designers like me...

But the 3d stuf is a fantastic addition to QML.

I think it looks much too detailed and realistic for an icon.

Icons should focus on the essence of the concept they're trying to convey, without overwhelming or distracting the user with superfluous photo-realistic details.

In the case of application icons, they should also try to aim for recognizability and distinguishing characteristics, rather than depicting a generic photo-realistic drawing of some object.

Pinheiro said...

@Anonymous that is our opinion.
I don't usually overwhelm my icons with details unless they are there to make the object more obvious... I mean for the case of the lens, most of the details there help compose the lens aspect of it... a simplification towards a more generic object in this case wont help, in fact it will require more analyses from the user to discover what it is..
there are a few cases were simplified object represent an object better than a specific object of the family objects in question, example a "car" a "house" a "face".... most of the time it's abstractions we learned. but its not a global fact... as soon as you try to describe more complex and less common objects you end up with problems, the abstracted simplified object becomes unrecognizable simple because most users are not that familiar with the object let alone with the simplified abstraction of it....

in the case of this object, and its use here.... well its the same object digikam was using so far...
If i had more time I could spend some weeks/months trying to come up with the perfect Object/metaphor/logo for a application that manages your image database, and that does a gazillion other things.. But since I Don't and because this was just a way to save some work from deletion, for now its what we have.

What is wrong with upcoming digiKam 2.0 icon? http://fri13.imgur.com/digikam#SK4xT couldn't it be animated as well if wanted?

Pinheiro said...

@fri13, nothing was wrong with the old one just think this one is a bit better...
Don't know if you did the old one but if that was you you, I propose you adapt the new one to showFoto, what do you think?

Fri13 said...

@Pinheiro

Yes I made the old one (currenty in use) and it has been needed a update.

I am not sure can your version be modified for showFoto as it should be different by the color.
Same time the icon should be used on every other part of the software and the websites etc.

The current icon has few problems like the smaller size with the roundeness what I could not manage to get exactly well. And then the color intesivity what is littlebit too opaque in the current version.

The idea on icon is to be like how light reflects from the lens, bu rendering it fully to one color without spotlights what are unrealistic in most cases.

And lighting is from top left&right corners as studio lights are.

There were versions of darker one like yours but it does not look good after a while when it just starts being a black dot more or less and resemble other lens icons too much, to be like a clone.

I were hoping you could try to bring some transparency with bright color to lens if just possible.

More like http://fri13.imgur.com/digikam#93pZh
what is just one object less from this http://fri13.imgur.com/digikam#UplGt

As even http://fri13.imgur.com/digikam#Fv916 looks nice because reflection in big size, it does not look so nice at small size as neither does dark version.

And the lens edge should have all those text because the icon is used for other use as well so all the digikam, web-address, open source etc are there to illustrate the realistic objective.

I have been thinking how to get your version as you suggested to fit for showFoto but it has so little color being different enough that I can not get know how. You are the icon master so you know much better than me as the digiKam logo was my first one what I ever did (or even ever touched the SVG editor) and it has some problems what I mentioned.

@fry stop by #oxygen we can discuss this a bit more.. I have some ideas ;)
