Default How do I make custom widgets using uccw?

hi.
I'd like to know how people make custom widgets using uccw. I want to make (for example) an image of a clock in photoshop and then use it in uccw. How do I do that? What size must the image be and how to I open it in uccw?

What I was thinking of doing was 3 (circle) gauges, one showing time, the other weather with the battery status as the outside circle and the last one a circle menu (if possible) allowing me to launch apps such as camera, facebook and so on. Hopefully you know what I'm talking about.

What I don't understand is how you can make a clock in photoshop and then make it work in uccw, or a battery circle for example.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm new to this sort of stuff (making icons, widgets and so on).

Thanks in advance

I haven't used UCCW (been meaning to, but just haven't had time), but it looks like there's a lot of tutorial videos about it on Youtube.

Hope that helps to at least get you started.

Thanks. All the tutorials I found were how to use uccw and import skins but not how to make your own. But I found out how to do what I wanted to another way. I'd still like to learn how to make my own widget tho. One thing, do you know if you can import fonts into minimalistic text?

Yes it is. This thread explains it pretty well.

minimalistic text font change

Edit: Or here's a good write-up on it from a member here at AF ↓

thanks, so easy once you know how to do it (the fonts I mean).

Here's what I've managed to achieve, I'll add a weather widget when I find something I like. I want to keep it relativity clean. I'm not 100% happy with it, not sure why tho haha, ah well, I love playing around with my nexus.



Oh, my navigation bar won't go transparent for some reason I found a hex code online for transparency and it worked for a while but every so often it will go back to black. I used to be able to go back into the settings and just select the transparent color again but it's not working at all now.
