FAQs  
Feel free to post your queries here.

Icon making:
I use Adobe Photoshop CS2. Credits will be listed with every post, archived on this one and in my memories depending on availability.

Crediting:
Is wonderful, but not necessary. As long as you don't hotlink, claim you made them, or modify my icons, I'm just happy you're using them. If you do credit, I prefer sushicolour rather than refche so there is less jumping from link to link.

Requests:
If you need a specific icon you think I can make for you, or a modification of one of mine, please comment on this post and we might arrange something. Depending on the amount of free time I have, I will try to address your request.

Disabled commenting:
While I love comments from the bottom of my heart, I sometimes suck at replying, and I don't like the idea of leaving a generic thanks, or worse, not replying. If you'd still like to leave feedback or a question, comment on this post. Honest critique and interesting discussions are always a good thing.

History:
I originally signed up on LiveJournal for the purpose of icon making and sharing. The more I discovered the fandom aspect of LJ, the less prolific I became. Not that icon making became less interesting, but other areas became a priority. It came to a point where I only made icons for myself, without the ones I could hope others would enjoy. Which brought me to creating this journal where I can post icons without the weight of "But my flist isn't watching me for THIS" hanging on my back. Older icon posts are archived at my personal journal under the icon tag.

Should icons be credit to refche or sushicolour, or are you particular about that?
refche on February 8th, 2007 12:15 am (UTC)
Yay, question! :) I'm not particular, but I suppose sushicolour makes more sense, so there's no double linking going on.
Pith: omgtheyexplodepith on February 8th, 2007 12:29 am (UTC)
Aye aye, cap'n! I'll hopefully get all of them switched over.

Quote icons! Yay! *has a weakness for quote icons*
refche on February 8th, 2007 12:33 am (UTC)
Oh, oh! No, you don't have to! I mean, I don't mind the link to the journal, just, you know, sense! :)

omgthat'saniconofmine!
Pith: showhimthegoodpornpith on February 8th, 2007 01:11 am (UTC)
No worries =) It's not hard to paste in the right tag. I did already.

So's this one. *g*

This is for questions only, right. Uh.
How can you be so brilliant ?
I had a hard time selecting a few icons NOT to take. I love them all.
Second question : how am I going to chose since I can get only one more icon ?
Hell.
refche on February 15th, 2007 10:09 am (UTC)
I don't think I can answer those, just blush and splutter in incoherence. Thank you! :)

Is it alright if I take your css style for A Sorta Fairytale layout and change the colors to match my header? I'll credit you for the overrides, of course
refche on April 2nd, 2007 12:26 pm (UTC)
No problem, go wild. :)

So uh, I was going through simplelimits and saw your red post. I was about to leave a comment when "OMG THERE IS NO "POST A NEW COMMENT" LINK!?! *SPAZFLAIL*" But I completely understand the entire not replying thing 'cause I'm horrible at it myself :)
So my question is: is there any coherent way for me to express my love for your graphics? And thank you! ♥

*fails at life*
refche on April 10th, 2007 04:33 am (UTC)
While we're talking about the Red batch, blood sacrifice works. As coherent as a message can get. ;) And thank you, I'm thrilled you like them.

So I'm in the process of admiring your icons when I thought, I would love that font! If you don't feel like sharing, I can respect that too. But anywaysss, long story short, I love this font.

& on top of it, it's hard not to take all of the baby icons.
refche on May 8th, 2007 05:36 am (UTC)
The font is probably this one. And I'm really glad you're enjoying the icons.

A little late, but I had to say it: Thank you!

I'm glad you're liking them. I was full of glee when veer released the images.

I used your stylesheet "A Sorta Fairytales" for my LJ and modified it for my purpose. But I liked the small borders and the bar across the headerpic.

In your testimage you can see the tags above the current location, current music, but in the stylesheet there is no entry for the tags. Can you tell me the entry to show the tags and where I must place it in the stylesheet.

Sorry, my english is very poor.
refche on September 23rd, 2007 07:13 pm (UTC)
Sorry I took a few days replying, it's been busy lately.

To mess around with tags you generally use:

.ljtags { }

Note me if you need help with what goes inside.

Hi, I wanted to say that I really adore your icons, especially the My Chem ones! Taking lots and will credit :D
refche on October 25th, 2007 10:51 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D
älä lannistu, anja: andy i love youkuperkeikka on October 29th, 2007 08:24 pm (UTC)
Would you mind if I used one of your icons in last.fm? I would credit, of course.

All of your icons are made of awesome. &hearts
refche on October 29th, 2007 09:52 pm (UTC)
Absolutely, go ahead. And credit isn't really necessary, I don't know if there's a place where you could put it, and I really don't mind if you don't. And thank you, I'm glad you like them. :)

I'm using your 'A Sorta Fairytale' layout - I changed the header to one of the tulip pics (it's so pretty!) You and your community are credited in my info.

One question - is there a way to move the header links so they show up below the image as opposed to on top of it? Just curious - thanks, and great job on the layout! I love flowery layouts :)
refche on March 9th, 2008 02:26 am (UTC)
No problem, you just have to change a few numbers in the #maincontent, #sidebar, and #header parts of the stylesheet. I'd colour-code it for you, but it's 4am atm :) I've removed the border that makes the effect look kinda neat, but that leaves the header image itself with a border. Hope that's not a problem? Paste the code in the appropriate place and tell me if that works for you.


#maincontent {
margin-top: 310px;
font-family: "Tahoma", sans-serif;
background-color: #f4e0de;
color: #988675;
margin-left: 165px;
}

#sidebar {
padding-top: 45px;
margin-top: 275px;
background-color: #f4e0de;
border-right: 1px #e1c8c3 dashed;
font-size: 11px;
font-family: "Tahoma", sans-serif;
color: #988675;
width: 160px;
float: left;
}

#header {
padding: 7px 0px;
text-align: center;
font-family: "Trebuchet MS", sans-serif;
font-size: 18px;
font-weight: bold;
font-style: italic;
letter-spacing: 0px;
background-color: #ffffff;
color: #988675;
position: relative;
top: 300px;
}

It looks perfect - Thank you so much! :)

I'm using your Fairytale layout, with one of your awesome headers. I changed the colors -- do you mind? I've credited you in my profile. thank you for sharing your talents with us! The layout is fabulous!
