I'm not too pleased about some of the color (and other choices)

more accurate). In Blender 2.5 it is a small button with a
icon that's hard to see (without a magnifying glass) and it
says "Image". Why not make it bigger to emphasize it's
importance and give it a little color?

I'm not against sticking to standards for UI, but I think
