    This tells me nothing of what you do want. :confused:

    If you're asking if I'll guess what would look good with that wallpaper, find images and make an entire custom icon pack, well that's probably not going to happen.

    If you have something specific in mind for a few icons (say for the dock icons), maybe I can help out. But I'll need to know in detail what you want.

    OK Twiz, Here ya go. I hope this fits with what you had in mind. Let me know.

    To save it in full 960x800 resolution, use the download button on the linked page or the share button to email it to an address accessible on your phone, then save the attachment. If your phone wont save it full size, or it looks fuzzy, download and save it with a computer, then USB or email the full sized version to your phone.

    Ok, here's my best shot at explaining what I think is the easiest way to size wallpapers. First, read how I described it to someone else -

    OK, got it? Here's step by step how I did yours. First I found a larger, hi-res version to work with so it would look less pixelated. Here's the one I used - http://www.mosaicwallpapers.com/wallpapers/1280x1024/Sub-Zero-Character_1280x1024_2809.jpg

    Next I opened Sumo, hit "Open from URL" and pasted the image address. So now I have a 1280x1024 image to work with. The ideal size for your phone is 960x800, so I go to the Image menu,select Image size and make sure "constrain proportions" and "smoothing" are checked. Now I'll want to change the size of either the height or width, whichever one results in leaving extra on the other. Doing this lets me crop as little as possible without distorting the image. In this case, I'll change the height to 800 giving me a new size of 1000x800. Correct height, but still too wide.

    For the next step, go to the "Select" menu and hit select all. Now go to the "Edit" menu and hit copy. Next go to the "File" menu and open a new image sized at 960x800. Now go to the "Edit" menu and hit paste. You can move the image around a little side to side to center the part you want. And there you have it, ready to save (in the File menu) as a .PNG or .JPG.

    Here's my final result from the above steps. Hope all this helps!

    The wife wanted this one in pink and purple, so I figure I might as well post 'em up. Maybe someone else will want them too.

    To save them at the full 960x800 resolution, use the download button on the linked page or the share button to email them to an address accessible on your phone, then save the attachment(s). If your phone wont save them full sized, or they looks fuzzy, download and save them with a computer, then USB or email the full sized version(s) to your phone.

    Hey gang - I've been working on an icon set, and I could use a couple of people to test out the first few and let me know they look on their phones. I can only test 'em out on my Hero (god forbid I mess with the wife's Evo or tablet! :(:p). If they look nice, and there's interest, Ill keep making more of them and post the set for everyone.

    Here's a preview of the 16 I've done so far (the text labels are not on the actual icons...)

    Each one is in 2 sizes - 128x128 & 72x72 - as those seem to be the most popular.

    If you're interested, reply here and I'll PM you a link to the zip file.

    TIA.

    Hi eyebeam. Could you do a Lamborghini Aventador wallpaper for a HTC Desire, please?

    Any colour car although I'd rather it not be orange. And I would like something which shows off the shape of the car but I trust in your artistic instincts so whatever you think looks good(and is convenient for you) is fine.
  10. eyebeam

    eyebeam Well-Known Member

    Sure, I can do that. I assume by orange you mean the red-orange most of the seem to be. For instance -
    http://newscarquotes.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/2012-Lamborghini-Aventador-LP700-4-.jpg

    Correct me if I'm wrong - I'm partially color blind. If that is the color you don't want, I can make most of those a dark silver (which it does seem to come in, but quality pics are few and far between) if that's cool with you.

    Also, any thoughts on a background, or should I just wing it?

    Get back to me and I should have something for you tomorrow.

    Sak01 Well-Known Member

    I do mean the orange that they usually come in but that link you posted is quite a unique shade of red. Very fiery. I've never seen that before. I don't mind that but i think i'd prefer your silver or any other color.

    I'm not sure about the background so whatever you think looks good.

    I'll play with the eyecons (see what i did there, lol) hook it up.

    Also 2 questions: Whenever i re size a screenshot from computer it looks horrible. Lose ALL quality, tried doing it by percentage AND pixels in Paint. I use Paint cause it is the quickest to access on pc but not sure if it just sucks at this or if it is user error:D (sorry to hijack)
    oh yea, 2nd: did you use my dropbox referral?

    1 - Damn! I should have thought of naming them that. Nice. OK, PMing you a link for the zip file. Any feedback/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. And thanks a ton!

    2 - God, I haven't used Paint in years, but are you saving them as a .png? Might help. I use SumoPaint (online) & GIMP (offline) for 99.5% of the ones I do, and I think the results are satisfactory. Sumo is almost as quick and easy as Paint, I'd say. For a (rambling & possibly incomprehensible) explanation of how I resize in Sumo, see: http://androidforums.com/android-themes/92348-willing-make-wallpapers-52.html#post2678948

    Sumo: .: Sumo Paint 3.5 :.
    GIMP: GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program

    3 - Yes, I did use your referral. I needed a place to upload zip file for the icons. Thanks!

    4 - Could you get to the bottom of what's going on with this thread lately? First it was listed in a themes guide thread that was stickied, then that was removed. Then is was renamed, then stickied and now un-stickied? It all seem a little... odd. :confused:

    Well, I'm really glad you'd prefer the silver, as I'd already put some work into changing it. :p;) Alright, I'm on it. Check back later today.

    Woah! I'm speechless. I knew you were good but I never knew you were that good. That's a really creative choice of background.

    Thanks a lot, mate. It's much appreciated.

    Ha, funny! Don't get too riled up yet. So far, he hasn't gotten back to me with a screeshot (or even just a guess as to how to line it up). Your intellectual property is safe - for the time being... Tick, tick tick. :p
  19. deanshep85

    deanshep85 Well-Known Member

    to be fair its not 'mine' per sey...

    you created it, designed it etc so its actually 'yours' by copyright or something like that...

    I just was the spark for it....

    and the actual coloured background credits would actually be HTC as thats an official HTC one just tweaked by you..

    One tiny nitpick, eyebeam. Is it possible to change the glow effect around the car? It looks fine on my PC but on the phone it kind of makes the car look like it was stuck on to the background rather than blending in with it.
  21. eyebeam

    eyebeam Well-Known Member

    Got cha. I was iffy about that glow myself. while I was at it, I also put the car at a slightly better (hopefully) angle. See if this works better for you.

    Perfect. I don't know if it was the angle change but the front wings and bonnet of the car look better now too.

    Another thing I noticed is that it looks even better(fantastic actually) in landscape mode but I have to drag the wallpaper up to bring the car into focus. I can crop it myself but do you know of a way to set a different wallpaper for landscape and have it automatically switch between wallpapers when I turn the phone?
  23. eyebeam

    eyebeam Well-Known Member

    Cool, glad you think it's better.

    As far as an app that let's you change wallpaper views from portrait to landscape, I know of no such thing. I've not used it, so I have no idea if it'll do what you want, but someone posted a thread about "Wallpaper Wizardrii" that was titled something like "all your wallpaper problems solved!". Might be worth a shot.

    Hello Eyebeam, I'm not sure if your still making wallpapers for the HTC EVO 4G but, I'm looking for a good Freemason Wallpaper and/or Scene. If you can't, Thank You anyway.

    Hello, and welcome to AF. Sure, I'm still making all kinds of wallpapers. I don't know if you saw them, but I've made a few Mason wallpapers previously. Maybe you'll like one.

    To save them in full 960x800 or 960x800 (depending on which you choose) resolution, use the download button on the linked page or the share button to email it to an address accessible on your phone, then save the attachment. If your phone wont save it full size, or it looks fuzzy, download and save it with a computer, then USB or email the full sized version to your phone.

    If those aren't doing it for you, can you describe what you might like? The more you can tell me, the better.

    One other thing - I'll be out of town all of tomorrow, so it'll be sometime on Tuesday before I can get anything done.
