Just some guy releasing a few recolours of Windows default cursors, since they don't exist here. I made Windows XP 3D Red and 3D Orange (Zune theme, anyone?) a few years ago but never released them, just recoloured them for myself. Like the RealWorld Cursor Editor software very much, highly recommended! When I made my first recolours, all the software was trial stuff or not very good...

Inverted Pixel Arrow Pointers Cursors (27 cursors)

Released on August 28th 2015 by Kip

!!! IMPORTANT NOTES PLEASE READ !!! THESE CURSORS ARE NOT INVISIBLE !!!

These cursors use inverted pixels, made using this websites own RealWorld Cursor Editor. http://www.rw-designer.com/ incorrectly displays an invisible preview, however, Windows will display a preview correctly when you are picking them for your mouse theme. I have made a preview image with the pointers hovering over a white background to give you an idea of what they look like.

These work by 'reading' whatever pixel is underneath and flipping the value to produce what you see. To try these inverted pixels without downloading anything, try setting your mouse pointer scheme to one of Windows built-in inverted schemes. If you do not like the effect, do not download, do not review on personal taste alone and do not leave a pointless comment. My personal taste is I don't like pink but that doesn't mean I go around leaving negative 1-star reviews on all pink cursors. Some people like pink, others don't. Same for inverted pixels. It's pretty simple so don't make yourself look stupid.

PLEASE TRY A WINDOWS BUILT-IN INVERTED SYSTEM THEME FIRST IF YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH INVERTED MOUSE CURSORS.

PLEASE COULD EVERYONE CONSIDERING THESE VIEW THE PREVIEW IMAGE FIRST BEFORE DOWNLOADING!

Rant over. These cursors are quite good at always being visible on your screen, as they are basically the opposite colour of whatever they are hovering over. That said, they can be hard to see on shades of gray, as the opposite of gray is, well, gray... There are both animated and static cursors available and some variations as well, which make up a full set and then some.

I made these purely for myself but may as well put them out for others to enjoy too. If you like them then please say so! It would be much appreciated. CONSTRUCTIVE criticism is welcomed but pointless comments about not liking inverted pixels is not, as you have been given fair warning as to what they are and what they do. In other words, please comment on the QUALITY OF THE WORK ONLY and not the chosen 'colour' scheme.
