Notefile Sync Preferences

    I needed a cloud icon for Notefile's sync preferences, so I figured I'd repurpose the cloud I was playing around with earlier this year. I'm not entirely sure this is final, but I'm pretty happy with it.

    After working on this, I can understand why so many cloud icons look similar. Three or four puffs is about the most you can get away with and still have it work at a small size, without just looking like a blob. A flat bottom helps give it some weight and definition—and helps it fit in with other icons that are likely to have more hard edges. I tried to make mine a bit different, and I like how it came out, but I do wonder if a more "standard" cloud icon would work better.

    I've been surprised by a lot of things working on my first proper Mac app, but I was completely dumbfounded to find Apple doesn't offer an easy way to create this style of preferences window. Fortunately MASPreferences made it simple.

    This cloud icon looks really good and is indeed different from the regular 3 or 4 puff flat ones. Its much more volumetric.

    The form in unbalanced. I am looking at it with my head tilting to the right.

    Oh yeah, definitely not done with the form yet. This was just a first pass to rough it in. I was going to crop out most of it, but shoving the window in the corner looked goofy. Thanks!
