This might be a dumb question. I don't know. I'm new to all this. How do you find icons for your programs? All GUI applications have cool icons that represent various things. For instance, to save is often represented as a disk, etc. You know, the small little picture references that give meaning to the phrase 'Graphical User Interface'. But I'm not a graphics artist! Drawing is simply one talent that skipped me completely. Where can I find icons to use with my programs?

I don't even know how to search for them, because I'm not sure how to word it. I tried Googling various things: icons, software graphics, application icons, custom graphics, etc, etc. But I'm not getting much luck here you guys.

Also, besides just finding a collection of various pre-made icons, who would I talk to to make me some original custom made icons? I'll look for hours and find one or two places, but they never respond to my messages, so I figure they must not do that kind of art work.

I'm looking for both: a collection of graphics and some place (or someone) that can make custom original graphics. The latter is just for future reference. The more important one is the former, because I can't even afford to pay for originals right now. But maybe I will soon, so it would be nice to have a resource.

Thanks in advance,
