What file do you edit to change the small white strip in the front of the dock?

Judging from what I read here, it must be a matter of time before someone comes up with a utility editing the Dock graphics on the fly using Core Image and manipulating the Dock preferences as sysadmin.

quick customization question:
is there a way to increase translucency for menubars? i saw someone do it with terminal, and i was wondering if there was some command to let you do that.

thanks

Here are some dock floors that I made using images of hardwoods.
My favorite is the Cocobolo one (Top Image), but the Purpleheart (Middle Image) is second. The Paduak (Bottom Image) didn't turn out as well as I thought it would. I guess it really depends on your background.

I also included my app indicator. I don't love it, but its bigger and more noticeable.

Inside the zip is a Dock Images folder with the Dock "floors" in separate folders. I haven't customized the Dock Separators at all. Just drag the indicators and the images from whichever wood you like into /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources AFTER backing up and deleting the originals from that location.

heres a strange question. can someone who's fluent in photoshop or image editing change the current indicator from simply blue to red? i was hoping there was some way to put a tint over the image, but apparently Seashore doesn't support anything like that.

so thanks if anyone can take the time and effort to do that for me

i used an application called Acorn to put a black to blue gradient on the dock. works well with the backgrounds with earth behind them and some cool ones like the one i have as my background. I'm going to experiment with some other concepts.

Yeah I know, saw you over on digg. That's actually a good idea, should come in handy browsing dock styles. Do yourself a favor a stick to that one thing, Leopard docks.

I finally loaded Leopard onto my MacBookPro and have had no luck customizing my dock no matter what I do. Have followed all the standard procedures to the tee and even tried the "Pimpmydock" app which makes customizing a no-brainer -- still nothing but the original Leopard dock.

I am using DockMover which pins my dock to the bottom left, but even after I moved it to a standard Apple bottom center position, nothing changed. My dock even began showing random app icons when I dragged totally unrelated folders onto it, which leads me to believe that my dock has managed to become corrupted from the gitgo? I simply have no idea.

Does anyone here have a copy of all the items in the original dock Resources folder so I can do a side-by-side comparison to see if anything weird copied over into the Leopard one from my old Tiger system (I used SynchronizationPro to create a bootable backup of my original Tiger drive so some hidden files may have transfered into the new system and are tweaking with Leopard in a way it doesn't like!)

Any other things I can do to troubleshoot this? I want to have fun customizing the dock along with everyone else!

*drools* I want that desktop wallpaper... I've been looking all over deviantART and the likes for a wallpaper just like that for YEARS!
