Shadows look ugly!
Authored by: nagani on Oct 26, '07 05:42:49AM

A problem I see is that all OSX icons are designed to have a 3D look when viewed in 2D Finder windows, using semi-transparent shadows.

Try this: look at the top of the 3D dock and think that the icons are on the desktop; it makes sense, these are 3D objects that have a shadow. Then move your eyes to the bottom of the dock, you get perspective, things are now in a space with no plane to cast a shadow on. The icons still have their overhanging shadows though, which appear as dirt out of nowhere.

Feel comfy with the pretty look?
