SharePoint /_layout/images/ Full List
Not everyone has admin access to see under the hood of SharePoint.  One of those areas is the "/_layout/images/" directory where SharePoint stores its images. 
 
As user who customizes SharePoint and uses JQuery and Javascript to improve the experience I found that I wanted to use the same images that came with SharePoint, but I did not have access.  So with the help of Paul Greneir I was able to get my hands on the 2000+ images found in "/_layout/images/".
 
My first reaction was wonderful, now I can organize and have access to all these images.  Then when I realized it was 2000+ images, I took great pause.  That is a lot of images to review and organize.
 
Here is what I am attempting, not to loose my sanity.  So far I have grouped these in two ways.  First, I have grouped them alphabetically.  Second, I have grouped them by size of the image (Small, Medium, Large).
 
I have also identified which images can be found in WSS and MOSS (both) and only on MOSS (MOSS Only).
 
Here is a sample view:

Awesome! Much Needed

All I can really say is wow! I'm in the same position as you and have been flying pretty blind ... manually checking the properties of images I find to get the file names. But there were some I knew I was missing (and I didn't realize how many).

Thanks for the great idea and making it available.
