    You are right, and this post is being created in your honor.

    This post will be the central point for a library of images separated into ZIP files per device. The files in this post will be updated and changed as necessary with dates and changes listed per ZIP. You will have to keep an eye for new or revised icons added for your device.

    HTC Incredible Android 7 Images (480x800 Resolution, 4-columns x 5-rows, LauncherPro)

    More will be posted as they become compiled and categorized.

    Thanks Paul (good name by the way ;-) )

    Would you be able to resize some of the other icons that are on this thread and add them to the zip also please?

    I'm also looking for generic sports one, plus NHL one and a Man Utd / Football (soccer to North Americans) if possible also both Horizontal and Vertical.

    I tried my best but I simply suck, and I don't have motivation to continue. the howl proses was just tedious.

    my idea was to make it a 50's style (I found these pics on the web) if anyone interested to make it a reality here they are.

    Sorry, Only just saw the reply.

    It can be labelled Train / Bus - or Public Transport perhaps?

    Re size',s i'm thinking the 4x1 or the 3x1 size for the desire.

    Okay, first things first, here's a quote from Page-1 Post-1 of this thread:

    "For those who need a little help figuring out image sizes for the Desktop Visualizer widgets, the following list is based on LauncherPro's homescreen arrangement of 4-columns and 5-rows:"

    It looks like you're set to 4-rows.

    The best thing to do before attempting this theme is to read the entire first post: Android Phone 7 Theme. This can save a lot of people a lot of headaches.

    Also, try sticking with the dimensions listed on the above post for the Incredible. As much as you may be using the dimensions listed by jamesnmandy, I don't think they're correct. If you sized the 2x1 at 230x124 as jamesnmandy stated, it should still be that size... but it's coming out at 249x123. That's a big clue that the dimensions aren't right.

    But, try changing the rows setting first ([MENU]-> [Preferences]-> [Homescreen Settings]-> [Number of Rows]-> [5]. Also make sure that "Auto-fit Items" is checked. When the pop-up says "Restart required" press "Yes".

    Let me know how this works.

    it must be something about his settings or if he is starting out creating a 3x1 desktop icon and then choosing a 2x1 scaled image

    thats why i changed my resized image filenames to reflect the proper resolution, so if you choose a 2x1 Desktop Virtualization Widget, you should then be sure you choose a png with a 2x1 in it's name, otherwise weird things will happen

    heres my Fascinate using the very images i resized along with your original ones Paul, they play nice together now after i resized them

    I definitely understand assigning the widget size to the filename... I have been doing that since the beginning.

    But I still don't get the image dimensions you're using. Maybe it's just me and my OCD, but the widgets in your screenshots don't seem to be lining up as they should (ie. the vertical spacing is much larger than the horizontal spacing). Not that there are any rules to doing this... they just don't seem like they are playing well to me.

    It's amazing to me that the same resolution on different devices yields varying results. Other than notification bar and dock size differences, the overall pixel dimensions are the same. And I also notice that no matter what the device, there is a consistent 5-pixel gap along the left and right borders as well as a [pretty] consistent 10-pixel gap gap between widgets. There theoretically should be very little difference between devices with the same screen resolution.

    Basically, I'm finding that people are just forgetting simple settings in LauncherPro... like the "Auto-Fit Items" setting, which fixes the different vertical spacing problems.

    I don't really like how the "Skype" ones turned out (with the descender in the font).

    Hope this helps, though.

    Hi jamesnmandy,

    Hmm, that's strange. Are you sure about these? I have the international version Galaxy S and paulmz's dimensions work perfectly on it. Could you share some screenshots?

    Grrr I tried to resize some of the icons for other phones on PhotoShop using the desire sizing but coming out wrong still. Dunno why. its the verticle ones ending up too slim.

    Hmm, just noticed the dimensions kindly provided on first page are different to the ones I think I got of XDA which was also meant to be for Desire (resolution).

    Hmmm will have to look at again later.

    Love the 50's style ones, any chance of having them done for the Desire? ;-)

    Oh Finally need some good comic Book ones please!

    Geeze i'm all take these days! ;-)

    paulmz's always worked fine for me, i resized krze's icons because as they are in the original xda thread, there always ended up a lot of black border around them on my Fascinate, but paulmz's did not

    there was another guy in the xda thread that did the footwork to figure out what size worked best on the sammy devices. i simply took krze's icons and resized them in gimp to the dimensions the other guy worked out and they look great now, or much improved anyways

    i did not do anything to paulmz's icons, left them as is, they work fine


    i actually like the slightly off space, it gives it more of the abstract look i'm after, i am OCD'ish and usually gravitate towards symmetry to the point of being obnoxious about it at times, but for some reason the asymmetry of the layout is oddly appealing to me

    Thanks for doing the DX ones earlier, though I cannot find the ones here for the DX.
    Thanks for huge efforts.

    After tweaking the rows vs. columns on the Launcher Pro settings I got this. Enjoy ;]:

    Main Screen
    Musc Widget x3
    Photo Widget
    Google Voice Widget
    Windows Phone 7 Themed Keyboard *non and root users*
    Launcher Pro 3D App Drawer
    All of the square tiles are 300x300. My device screen resolution is 800x400 (Samsung Fascinate)

    1x2: 110x260
    1x3: 110x395
    1x4: 110x665
    2x1: 230x125
    3x1: 350x125
    4x1: 470x125
    4x4: 470x665
    Large (3x3): 350x395
    Middle (2x2): 230x260
    Small (1x1): 110x125

    Are these correct sizes for Desire?

    Still not matching Paul's ones in size
