Work on Access Icon

P: 4
Re: Where are Access icons located?

ADezii: While I realize this was posted 5 years ago, I'm hoping that you still have a copy of this database hidden in your archives?

I'm looking for a way to increase the size of the pictures in the buttons for documentation purposes(Guides for Clients)and this method seems to look quite promising.

Are you able to help?

Hi !
I'm sure that ADezii will help you if he can.

Another way to do what you have to do is to use a photo editor (I have used Photoshop - see attachment) to extract images directly from Access interfaces.

The main purpose for this post is to subscribe to this thread. Thank you !

Thanks Mihail,

Unfortunately I find that the pictures become quite blurry when extracting the pictures directly for the documentation I am putting together.

This will be for Client Documentation and manuals and will provide a site map of all the buttons and icons used within our program.
I'm after a fairly high quality pictures in larger format that I can reduce as necessary for easy veiwing across different documentation types.

Thank you for your suggestion though.

Indeed teddilly.
Unfortunately, I expect that the images in DLLs to be also very small (because this images are used for icons). Maybe I am wrong but I don't think so.

So, I can imagine only one way to obtain good images for your tutorial:
Print the images (at their original size) using a very good printer and a very high resolution. Then use a photo camera to take very good pictures from this images.

I know: this sound as a hard work even for an old chinese guy.

Good luck !

I fear you may be correct about the small images Mihail.
I'm hoping to be proven wrong though.

I have one more trick left up my sleeve if this doesn't happen to work, though will prefer to use the images from the dll.
