Here are my library thumbs.

 

Edit: GDrive link to current icon set. More may be added in the future.

These are all black and white. Feel free to modify with colors as you so desire.

 

I activate a "Christmas" library during the christmas season, for obvious reasons.

 

I just apply as "Primary" and "Thumb" and they've worked great for me. Blend in nicely with the flat icon style used elsewhere within Emby. And they're attractive across all my devices (Android, iPhone, webUI, and AndroidTV)

Hey, Thanks for the images. I like the style of these and was trying to make some similar for a few different use cases. What font did you use here?

to add my own. I used your color from e-books, because it was easy on the eyes to create this anime one.

 

edit: correct font

Thanks for the font :).

 

Do you have a template for these? I'm going to create a few more to share.

Is there one for Kids movies, trailers, collections and also Security Cameras?

 

Maybe that's a tall order....?

These look awesome!

 

Can anyone point me to where one finds the icons being used on the backgrounds? I tried searching Google and I am having a rough time finding ones that look this nice.

 

Thanks

I just google for "whatever" icon png or "whatever" symbol/logo/etc png for whatever you're looking for.

 

It will usually find a transparency.

From there, I make a mask of it in photoshop and change the color to white.

If the resolution was low, and I scaled the size, I followed a youtube guide for smoothing the edges using feather/contrast.

Some of these looked super jagged without it.

 

I am by no means good with photoshop. So, I think anyone should be able to do it :)

 

Edit: for instance, for the anime movies one, I used this image.

 https://i.imgur.com/fI7xoUY.jpg

I pen tooled out the inside of the glasses/nose, masked the whole image, and then changed it to white and smoothed the edges.

 

 

If you're speaking to the OP, you'll have to wait for them to answer :)

How do I change the image of the trailers plugin library entry?

Thanks for the info. I guess perhaps I haven't searched for it correctly. I have tried "multimedia" icons, media icons, etc. but couldn't seem to get anything useful.

 

I use Gimp, but I can do most of the same things there as I used to do on Photoshop, though obviously not all but enough to get by.

 

Thanks again.

I'm in marketing and advertising, so I created these with Adobe Illustrator. Mine are custom icons. I could probably make a whole set if you guys want to post a fairly comprehensive list.

It would be hard for me to make a few, then a few more whenever people ask for them, but I could sit down and bang out a whole batch.

If I did, I would probably make a batch of transparent name/icon images so everyone can overlay then in whatever colors they want. Or make them all bright red so you can adjust the hue/saturation to get the color you want. Whatever you guys would like.

I guess that is why yours look so much better!

 

Anyway, the media libraries I have are as follows:

 

Live TV

Recorded TV

Movies

Recorded Movies

Collections

Trailers

Music

 

I can use your Movies and Music icons already. Is it possible to create one for Live TV and Recorded TV that have two different Icons and one for Recorded Movies, also with a different icon?

 

I would appreciate it immensely.
