    Making your own icons?

    Not sure if this is the place for this or not but i am curious on how to make your own icons. I figure you use photoshop but not sure of size or pixel settings. I found info on replacing existing icons but want to make my own theme from scratch. Thanks in advanced.

    I use gimp to make icons. Its open source and free download.

    Download a set of icons that you like the style of and then just drag them into photoshop (or gimp) and alter it to your liking with fonts, colors, or images.

    That's for text icons and such for the dock at the bottom anyway. Not sure that's what you are looking for

    i believe icons need to be 84x84 pixels for dock and homescreen, and 38x38 for the notification bar icons (i opened the framework file and looked for them to verify lol)

    Yeah, but you can adjust the size for the dock icons to what you need. If you want two lines of text as opposed to one, just make the hight a little larger.

    Trey one out first though before making a whole set to make sure they look like you want them too.

    if you are replacing any standard icons (android system icons), you can use ninjamorph to do it (NinjaMorph FREE - Android app on AppBrain)

    if you are replacing dock icons, LPP will allow you to change icon via long press on the icon. ADW i believe does the same for dock AND home screen icons


    *edit* updated my post about ninjamorph...

    I can change my home page icons in Launcher Pro, without any programs. Just make the icon in photoshop, then drag and drop the pic into my gallery. Long press home screen > shortcuts > applications > choose app > touch the icon to change the icon pic to any pic in your gallery.

    You can do the same thing on the dock. Just longpress on the icon in the dockbar, then select change icon, then custom. Pick any pic from your gallery.
