Haha, too lazy to set up the screen shot thing.

Hi,

I won't be able to do until Sunday night, but basically the widget comes out at about less than a cm on the screen and I don't know why?

It's really tiny.

EDIT: is there a measuring tool that can help size for all the apropriat resolutions?

Earlier in this thread, I posted suggested dimensions for the HTC Eris:

DROID Eris Desktop Visualizer Image Dimensions

Different phones have minor differences in usable screen space due to varying sizes of the notification bar and other factors I have not been able to determine. But these dimensions should be really close.

Be sure to post screenshots after you arrange icons so we can take a look at it. Also, this way we can try to figure out if the image dimensions are different.

Okay, first describe what you are trying to do. Are you attempting to create a 4x4 Desktop Visualizer widget? If so, then the image that you are going to use for the widget needs to be 314x314 pixels (this is still just an estimated dimension). If the image is the correct size, it should fill the widget perfectly. The dimensions already take into account the space taken by the dock and notification bar.

Try not to get frustrated. Once we figure out where the disconnect is, we can get you going.

Post a screenshot if you're still having problems so I can see what you're talking about.

I wrote this 5 posts up from this one:


"Earlier in this thread, I posted suggested dimensions for the HTC Eris:

DROID Eris Desktop Visualizer Image Dimensions" <--Click This Link

Note, these are only dimensions for the stock widget sizes from Desktop Visualizer. If you want to resize icons using LauncherPro Plus, you will need to calculate the sizes from the ones provided. For example: Desktop Visualizer doesn't have a 4x2 widget, but you can make one by taking the height dimensions for a 1x2 widget (154) and combine it the the width of a 4x1 widget (314). Using this formula, an image for a 4x2 widget would be [approximately] 314x154 (width x height).

Also, please note that all of these dimensions are based on the LauncherPro Homescreen being set to 4-columns and 5-rows.

Feel free to ask if you have any other questions.

Yes, the HTC Legend has the same resolution as the Eris: 320x480.

Keep an eye on this thread. I'm working on icons for this resolution.

Now, I think I have it. The pixel dimensions in Photoshop are still throwing me a bit... on screen it shows a 7-pixel gap between images, but the math of the widget sizes says 6-pixels. Hopefully, this is it:

1x2: 74x154
1x3: 74x234
1x4: 74x314
2x1: 154x74
3x1: 234x74
4x1: 314x74
4x4: 314x314
3x3: 234x234
2x2: 154x154
1x1: 74x74


NOTE: I revised these dimensions on 10/29/10. If these don't work perfectly, the heights may still be off (ie: 73, 153, 233, 313).

I based all of this on your last screenshot, which measured the 4x1 at 314x73 and the 2x1 at 154x73. I then took that into account with the 1x2 selected widget in the screenshot before that, which was at 76x154 (then I deducted 2-pixels per width and height to come up with the actual image size).

Let me know how this works.


thanks, this is indeed a very helpful post for these with a 3.2 in screen now I can finaly start making my own pics. I will post them when they are done

Okay, from what I can tell by your description...

If you have to "stretch" the image to fit the template, then the images you are using probably aren't big enough to begin with and will probably look pixelated.

Maybe try adjusting the size of the image first before adding it to the template. Here's a simple crop method that guarantees the correct sized image: Image Resizing Using Photoshop.

If you need any other help, feel free to post or Personal Message the images and what widget sizes you want them and I can get them adjusted.

EDIT: DAMNN! It looks so amazing. It is working wonders. The only down side would be that the images aren't that high quality. Looks really faded out. Other than that, it looks amazing. I don't know to post Screen Shots or else I would of.

Also, where do you get the icons?

Unfortunately the resolution of the device plays a big part in the image quality. If you could post screenshots (how to do this is listed on page 3 of this thread) I could make sure that they are the correct resolution for the device.

All of the icons I made myself. They were all originally created by me for use on my Incredible and at the request of other members for use on their devices. I just resized them for the lower resolution of 320x480.

You think that's frustrating? Try figuring this stuff out from scratch!

Anyway, if you could post some screenshots of how the widgets are sizing, I may be able to figure it out. The only thing I can think of right away is there would be an increased vertical spacing if you have the notification bar hidden. Also (I need to ask), just make sure that you're set to 4-columns and 5-rows (I know you said it's already set to 5-rows).

All of the images are sized specifically to not need resizing after placing. I'm not sure why it's not working. Seeing it would help.

Let me know.

Just want to make sure that you saw this part of the thread:

Creating Image Labels in Photoshop

How to add text to an image:

1. Click on the "T" text tool in the tool palette.
2. Click anywhere on the canvas.
3. Type the text, then click the check mark at the top bar.
4. If you didn't set the font before entering the text, you can do it now with the text layer selected (change font, color, size, etc. in the "Character" palette.
5. If you want, add the drop shadow as described in the post listed above.

If you need any other help, just let me know. Photoshop is difficult to use for the first time.

Thanks!
Just a couple of questions:

How should the train and bus icons be labeled (named)?

Did you have any widget sizes in mind for any of these?

Thanks.

Anyway, if you could post some screenshots of how the widgets are sizing, I may be able to figure it out. The only thing I can think of right away is there would be an increased vertical spacing if you have the notification bar hidden. Also (I need to ask), just make sure that you're set to 4-columns and 5-rows (I know you said it's already set to 5-rows).

All of the images are sized specifically to not need resizing after placing. I'm not sure why it's not working. Seeing it would help.

Let me know.
Now I feel dumb....Heads up, theres a setting in the advanced section of Launcher Pro that sets rows to 5. It was the wrong setting.....i found the correct row/column settings and it works beautifully now. Thanks

Thank you so much. It fits so nicely now. Just got to find some matching dock icons now, or someway to remove the dock in general.

Great work Paul, I'm definitely going to try this when I get some spare time.

I'll probably have some trouble with the dock though, as I'm running Android 1.6 with ADW launcher since Launcher Pro only works on 2.x... I've tried changing the dock background in the past (inside the ADW apk, I don't think there's another way), but it didn't come out correctly (there's an image file for every "slot" of the dock and when I put the same square picture for all of them, they get rendered with different heights on the phone, it's really ugly). I don't have the knowledge to look into xml files and things like that to find the source of the problem.

By the way, I can use Photoshop without any problem, I'm just saying this in case anyone has an idea.

When I had it, I put apps with no icons on it. It looks nice with the WindowsPhone7 themes, and invisible apps worked quite well. I got it from the guy who originally came up with the theme style.

Nice, but won't you get confused with the invisible apps?


On a side note, can I request a few images in HTC Legend size.

Something for Soundhound, and a few vertical images for any of the following: (Youtube, Camera, Music, Market, Googles, Fruit Ninja, Facebook). All my current images are 2x2 or 2x1. Wanna mix it up with some 1x2, 1x3 and even some 4x1.

Thanks again, please continue your astonishing work.

I only used a few, and only a single dock, so it wasn't bad... the app list was in the middle, and I had one on each end. Most of my apps were on the screen anyway.

everybody has their own way of doing things, me personally, i used the clear icons to hide them, and on my screen i have the icon/shortcut to all common things, like phone, email, browser, etc........

in other words i use it as if they aren't there. every once in a while i will accidentally hit them but it's not a big deal, and after a while you memorize whats there if you still want to launch items from the dock

i took the liberty of resizing Krze's Icons to fit the Samsung SAMOLED screen better, should fit any of the Galaxy S 4" screen phones better than before

Pixels Used

4x1- 475w x 124h
3x1- 355w x 124h
2x1- 230w x 124h
1x1- 110w x 124h
1x2- 115w x 266h

Download here:

PS, i also prefer to have the format in the filename, so i also changed that so when i am placing a 3x1 icon with desktop visualizer it helps me in choosing

Hey guys, would be good if we could get all the icons and batch them up into zip that fit each resolution as so many variants spread out now and not everyone stating what resolution/phone they have. This way all the icons made found can be neatly kept together and updated when new ones available.

Cheers

it really needs to be done per device, or at least grouped into screen types, for instance, the Samsung Galaxy S phones use a 4" screen running 800x480 resolution, however the Motorola Droid X with a 4.3" screen runs the same resolution, so the icons dont scale....

thats why i say the ones i resized will work best with all Galaxy S phones as they all use the same screen and same resolution

Default UPDATE: Enable LauncherPro Auto-Fit Option for Android 7 Theme

Hello everyone,

I'm writing this post due to something that I only now just realized. I have been noticing that, despite all of my insane OCD reworking, layouts on some devices are not spacing correctly. The only reason I can see for this issue is the possibility that the "Auto-Fit Items" option is not selected in LauncherPro Settings. Please see the following for a visual explanation and how to fix the problem:



If you do not have the "Auto-Fit Items" option check marked, it apparently makes the vertical spacing asymmetrical. The middle image is with "Auto-Fit" turned on, and the right-hand image is with "Auto-Fit" turned off. As you can see, the black vertical lines between the widgets stays the same but the black horizontal lines between the widgets gets smaller.

To remedy the problem, follow these steps:



When the pop-up screen says "Restart required" press [Yes].

Done! Hope this helps.
