In Echo Project we strongly recommend to create new icon using the echo-icon-new script which does some of the work, that an artist would need to do, behind the scenes. Today I've started thinking about writing a GTK version of the script so that the usage would be even easier. Here's my initial design idea of the GUI (click to see in original size):
Now, two issues arise:
How good is this layout from usability POV?
As I've never done GTK app, how to actually create this layout, preferably in ruby?
Both feedback for the first question and help for the second question is appreciated.
