Its too hot for being 2 am
I use Photoshop. Create icon over transparent background, size it down to 72x72px, and then I use the png24 setting of the "save for web/device " option.
Ill post another screenshot of my one page that's full of icons LOL
Left to right:
1st row: Shazaam, wireless tether, ebay, facebook
2nd row: photoshop express, foursquare, discover card, xbox (open spark)
3rd row: my days (girly stuff ), flickr, barcode scanner, weighty (tracks my weight)
4th row: Opera Mini, Yahoo! messenger, visual voicemail, RSS reader
5th row: DVR, notes, sims 3, personal assistant (tracks my accounts)
How do I post screen shots?
First, is your phone rooted? If YES, download the "Shoot Me" App (or something like it) from the Market...
If NO, The first step is setting up the SDK on your computer.
Make sure you download the correct sdk for your platform.
Make sure you're up to date with the Java Run Time Envrionment from Sun.
Plug your phone into your computer and start up the ddms tool. On a Windows machine, you open your SDK\tools folder and double click the icon. On Linux or a Mac, open your terminal in the sdk/tools and enter ./ddms
Make sure you select your device from the list in the right pane of the ddms application, then select device -> screen capture from the menu bar.
Grab your phone, set up the image you want to grab, and hit the refresh button. When you're satisfied with the results, click save and tell the ddms app where to save it.
If all of this is to confussing, hit up Google and search "How to take screenshots without rooting".
LauncherPro, Beautiful Widgets, Battstatt and Smooth Calendar. I'm looking for a better icon pack, I dont like the style of text icons I have right now. Anybody know where I can find another set? I'd make my own, but dont have Photoshop....too expensive.
Shoot Me from the market, it's working without being rooted. I had it on my non-rooted Epic, so it should also (I would think) work on the Vibrant.
ok,ive had it ive tried numerous times with the sdk download and havent got it to work. seems i may have read it isnt compatible with windows 7 is that true?
Are you trying to root your phone? It's easier to do it without windows. Just copy the update.zip file onto your phones memory. Then, shut the phone down. Hold down the volume button and power button until it starts booting up, then let go. You'll have a menu that says "Reboot phone, Reload Packages, Reset to Default". Select the Reload Packages by using the volume button to scroll, and the power button to select. That's it, your phone will be rooted.
flywatt....thanks ,but no im just trying to get a screenshot without rooting

You can download and use LauncherPro without rooting. This would let you modify the themes, and the default LauncherPro looks a lot more like stock Android than TouchWhiz.
How do I get that lock screen ^^?
Download widgetlocker from the market. It cost few bucks.
Here's my final product
From left to right.
Screen 1) WidgetLocker, Beautiful Widgets, Battstatt
Screen 2) This is my default screen. Beautiful Widgets, BattStatt, SwitchPro, Smooth Calendar
Screen 3) Picture Frame(x2), Pandora, Contact Widget (click on the pictures to call the person)
Screen 4) LauncherPro Facebook Widget, Google search
Sweet thanks now how do I get rid of the widgetlocker thing in the notification bar?
Edit: nvm got it thanks! Now how do I do a screen shot lol
I think the best that I have had set up was with the..
LauncherPro with DreamLyf theme.

Notification bar removed.
