<para>Looking at this second page of the icons control module, you
will see two areas:</para>
<itemizedlist>
<listitem>
<para>An area labelled <guilabel>Use of Icon</guilabel>. Here you can
choose which particular usage of icons you want to configure, for
example <guilabel>Toolbar</guilabel> or <guilabel>Panel</guilabel>.

</screenshot>
</para>
</listitem>
<listitem> <para>A preview area where you can see how
icons of the selected kind will look using the current
settings. Note that the state of this preview also depends on the icon
state selected in the effects below (do not worry
about that now, we will explain that below). </para> </listitem>
</itemizedlist>
<para>When you want to configure icons, first select the usage of icons
you want to configure. Change the settings until you like the
preview. You can then choose a different icon usage and configure
that. At the end, if you are satisfied with your settings, click
<guibutton>OK</guibutton> or <guibutton>Apply</guibutton> to take the
changes in effect.</para>
<para>There are two further options to consider,
<guilabel>Size</guilabel> and <guilabel>Effects</guilabel>. </para>

</screenshot>
</para>
<para>You can choose
from a list of icon sizes. The largest icon sizes are especially useful
for visually impaired people.</para>
<para>Which sizes will be offered by the icon size listbox depends on
the icon theme you have selected in the icon themes control module. For
example, the low color icon theme only offers the sizes 16 and 32 for
desktop icons and 16, 22 and 32 for toolbar icons. The HiColor theme
offers icon sizes 16, 32 and 48 as well as sizes from 64 to 128.
However, as &plasma; can not have all these icon sizes in store, icons
using size 64 to 128 will be automatically generated which may result in
a loss of quality.</para>
<para>You can also choose animated icons. Many of the icons have
animations associated with them. Enable the checkbox labelled
<guilabel>Enable icon animations</guilabel>, to enable this effect, but note
that it may appear slow or jerky if your graphics card is old or you
are low on memory.</para>
</sect3>
If you dowloaded new themes from the internet, you can use this to browse to the
location of those newly downloaded themes. Clicking on this button will bring you the file dialog to point to the icon theme tarball you have on your disk.</para>

<para>Clicking <guibutton>Open</guibutton> in this dialog will install the theme you pointed to and make it available in the theme list.
</para>
<para>Finally you can configure certain <quote>filters</quote> to be
applied on icons which are in one of three states:</para>
<variablelist>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>Default</guilabel></term>
<listitem><para>This is how the icon will look normally.</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>Active</guilabel>:</term>
<listitem><para>This is how the icon will look when the mouse cursor is over the icon.</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>Disabled</guilabel>:</term>
<listitem><para>This is how the icon will look if its corresponding action is
disabled, &ie; clicking on it will not lead to any
result.</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
</variablelist>
<para>Select one of these states, and press the <guibutton>Set
Effect...</guibutton> button to configure a corresponding icon effect.
Please note that this configuration will only affect icons of the
currently selected <guilabel>Use of Icon</guilabel> category (see
above): configuring an effect for active icons, while
<guilabel>Toolbar</guilabel> icon usage is selected, will
<emphasis>not</emphasis> affect active icons used in other
places.</para>
<para>Below the list of icon states there are two options: you can
configure an effect and you can select the
<guilabel>Semi-transparent</guilabel> option, which will make the
background <quote>shine through</quote> the icon. To the right of the
effects list box there is a slider button to pass additional parameters to
a filter for colours and <guilabel>Amount</guilabel>.</para>
<!-- TODO: Figure out what 'amount' really means -->
<para>The following effects can be applied to icons:</para>
<variablelist>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>No Effect</guilabel>:</term>
<listitem><para>Icons will be used without applying any
effect.</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>To Gray</guilabel>:</term>
<listitem><para>This filter will apply a grayish look to the icon. Use the
<guilabel>Amount</guilabel> slider to configure the intensity of this filter. Note
that it is customary for most user interfaces to use this effect for disabled
icons only.</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>Colorize</guilabel>:</term>
<listitem><para>Icons will be colorized using a custom color. For example, you
may configure active icons (&ie; the icon the mouse cursor is over) to
shine golden. Use the color buttons and the <guilabel>Amount</guilabel> slider
to configure the used color and the intensity of the colorization.</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>Gamma</guilabel>:</term>
<listitem><para>A different gamma value will be applied to all icons. If you're
no photographer and don't know what Gamma is: it's quite similar to what people
call contrast. Just play around with the gamma settings by moving the
<guilabel>Amount</guilabel> slider to get a feeling for this
effect.</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>Desaturate</guilabel>:</term>
<listitem><para>Icons will be drawn desaturated. This is quite similar to the
<quote>Color</quote> setting on your television. Use the slider to configure
the amount of desaturation.
</para></listitem>
</varlistentry>
<varlistentry>
<term><guilabel>To Monochrome:</guilabel></term>
<listitem>
<para>Icons will be drawn using only the two colours selected.</para>
