Hi Itamar,

This much both easy and difficult; easy, because there are hundreds of sites that provide images and icons, but difficult because you will inevitably have to sift through a lot of garbage. Just search under icons or even buttons in InfoSeek's ImageSurfer, or do an open search on bitmaps, icons, gifs and the like. Prepare to spend some time if you are looking for something specific. Unfortunately, alternative libraries are not available per se, but perhaps after you finish your searches, you should send your results as freeware to Torri's and The Delphi Deli...? You have a good idea in the works!

Itamar, I was looking in my resources and i found a set of bitmaps (about 400) that I downloaded from the net. The most are 16*16, I guess that there are no 16*32, anyway, Delphi draw the shadow disabled very good. If you are interested e-mail me at k2xt@iname.com.
