I think it's very clever of you! Thanks for that. I used it on my dock, and, if I get tired of it, I will revert to the old dock. But I think it's pretty neat!

Since it's dead easy to change, could you possibly enlighten those of us with less experience. How do we do that?

~Thanks

It's all in the original instructions, which you could can download from the first post in this topic.

In summary though, there are 4 image files in system>library>core services>dock>contents>resources called 'scurve'.

Back them up to a safe folder and open them up in Photoshop (or your preferred choice of software). Alter the colours or contrast and replace the originals.

Then go into terminal and type killall Dock. This will just reload the dock shelf so you can see your creation.

fwiw it's "OBnoxious", and I can't see anyone but you complaining. You're the only one who DIDN'T thank me, after all that fuss. Love the irony lol.
