Have you ever wanted to make your own emblems for Ubuntu? It is very easy. Just use the GIMP (or something similar) to make a png image (make it at least 40x40px) and then open nautilus (e.g. Places>Home Folder>Edit>Backgrounds and Emblems and add it. I store all my emblems in ~/Pictures/emblems. For a brilliant overview of adding emblems etc visit http://www.go2linux.org/How-Customize-Ubuntu-with-Backgrounds-and-Emblems.
