Photobooth should make a custom Preview icon

November 17th, 2007 § 0 comments

I didn’t really notice until I upgraded to a new larger monitor a few months ago that the icon for Apple’s Preview application is of a young child holding up a fish. Cue instant revulsion — I don’t like children randomly showing up in iconography that does not directly relate to children. So I jumped into Photoshop and got rid of the young child, replacing him with a delicious redhead. Much better!

However, it would be much cooler if, the first time one launched Preview, it also fired up Photobooth and took a couple snapshots [or let you feed it previously-existing snapshots] and integrated them into the Preview icon, properly blending/blurring them under the thumbtack, and then instantly installing that icon for you.
