    So, I've finally got around to playing with Nova Launcher and UCCW and am looking to create my own graphics (Icons, Backgrounds) on my PC instead of using other custom packs. I want to make each screen on my phone based off of my favorite musical albums. How large should my graphics be (making them in gimp) and what format should they be in to transfer to my phone? If anybody can help with the technical specifics of this It would be really really appreciated! Thank you in advance!

    The only thing i know is that icons usually come in .png format but using a custom launcher like Nova, i think you can use any pic in your gallery as an icon (im guessing it would just be a square though) :thumbup:

    Size depends on if you want to make a scrolling or static wallpaper.
    Lemme find the specs though...

    I made this one for a friend. Static paper at 1280x1280

    Double up the x axis for scrolling.
