hello ProjektFuze. Thanx for the compliments.
What is your specific requirement? As I understand from your post on the other thread you want to have the Simplified Icons in greyscale, right?
If this is what you need it's a little easy in Photoshop.

There are 2 methods you can do this;

Method A
1. Open Simplified colored icon set
2. Go to PS top menus and click "Image" and select "Mode" and click "Grayscale".
3. Save a file copy.
That's it!

Method B (option for a little tweak on the grayscale shade)
1. Open Simplified icons set.
2. Go to PS top menus and click "Image" and select "Adjustments" and click "Black & White"
3. Play around the slider on each color to achieve the desired shade.
4. Save a file copy.
You're done!

Making the psychedelic icons is a little tricky. I have to re-create the icons using only a single specific color. After which I converted them into several other colors.

If you have some other icons that are not on my collection, you can also list them down and I will try to make them for you.

The Template was meant for those who want to play around and create new icons for themselves.

Sorry If i confused you. And thanx again.
