      Description

      The 16px file icons need some love to make them more recognisable and to make them fit in with the other icons on the course page and elsewhere.

      I suggest:

      1) The generic image icon should not be a document (at any size, really). Make it a generic photo with a border, something like http://www.iconfinder.com/icondetails/7366/128/image_photo_style_icon

      2) If the icon is a document with a shape in the middle, then throw away the document border and just make the center shape 16x16. So less like http://www.iconfinder.com/icondetails/47975/128/audio_file_icon and more like http://www.iconfinder.com/icondetails/42341/48/high_sound_speaker_volume_icon , for example.

      3) Tweak the image manually to make it crisper on screen.

            Much better!

            Suggested improvements:

            • zip just looks like a streak. How about a little 3D box for all such archive formats?
            • avi/mov/wmv/mpeg - I would make them all similar "film strip" icons, perhaps in diff colours matching bigger icons.
            • wav/wma/mp3 - Make them all "speaker" icons like wma, but diff colours matching the bigger icons.

            It's certainly better IMO.

            Looking forward to more tweaks on all icons in 2.4.

            Big thanks for the effort. This is now part of Moodle upstream. Let's wait for regressions, yay! LOL

            Ciao
