I just bought a Black 1TB Seagate Backup Plus Portable external hard drive to keep a Time Machine backup while I am on the move and I wanted to have a lovely little icon that popped up each time I plugged it in.
As I did before, I tried to find an icon to use on Google but I couldn’t find a decent one. Instead of googling and googling, I thought I would just go ahead and quickly make one myself. I got a decent image through the product page (link) and I used the same process as I did before which is Photoshop -> Icon Composer (need X-Tools) -> Candybar. Unfortunately this icon only goes up to 512 x 512, partly due to the image I could get off the Seagate website and partly due to me not updating my software.
I started off with the black vertical icon, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted my icon to be so boring, so I did the angled version of the icon too. Then I decided to be kind and do the remaining colours in the range for anyone else who wanted them.
Disclaimer: If you don’t know how to change an icon in Mac OS X, read this article and watch the video.
