    I think it'd be kinda neat to see part of my wallpaper in my desktop icons, but that's just me. I searched for a topic like this, and I found one about something going wrong in some tutorial on this site about it, but it had no link. I can't find it, either. ;X

    you do the transparency by using Alpha Channels in the Icon image. I think if you are using Photoshop then it is under the Layers thing.

    Not sure exactly what the alpha channels things need to be.
