  1. Thank you for your generosity in sharing your work!

  2. You are very welcome! Thanks for taking the time to comment, it’s great to hear. :)

  3. Guys, once again great work, and just a little information for those who want to scale these to the actual planet size you can use this site to obtain ratios. Set Jupiter as your biggest planet and scale to the ratios calculated for the other planets.


  4. Thank you. Great Job and very generous.

  5. Hey Vincent, that is pretty neat! Thanks David!

    Also, I made some non-glossy versions of the icons. You can click here to download them. Enjoy! :)

  6. What are these for?…i dloaded them from apple but they won’t open. Is it screensaver?

  7. Hey Michael. The icons are available in 3 formats. The icons posted on Apple’s site are Mac formatted icon files (can only be viewed on a mac). The icons attached to the download button in the blog post above are PNGs (those can be used on any platform). I also created them in Windows icon format (which can only be viewed on Windows). Here’s all the links for your downloading pleasure. :)

    • PNGs (512×512) [download]
