    @ dreahdreah- If I'm not mistaken, that is "Luminescence" live wallpaper that comes stock on the Epic. It's quite pretty in action.

    this may sound dumb but how do you resize a picture to 960x800 so it will fit on my screen?

    Picasa, photoshop or some other image editor. They have resize options. You can pick one of the two dimensions you mentioned as the new size and maintain the aspect ratio. Then just crop the excess to the other dimension. You should then be good to go.

    tried the resizing thing and it still is big. seems like there should be a way to make this work. I am just trying to get the whole picture on one screen. or is this not possible?

    I really like this one. How do you get the background to sync with your apps?

    Actually those are just big custom icons.
    This idea was started by Newone
    Here is his post

    Start here
    [Layout] Android Phone 7 (HDPI) - xda-developers

    I used Launcher Pro Plus, (Paid App,)
    Desktop visualizer, (free App)
    Custom icons. (make yourself or find them)

    I had a 2 Iphone guys take one glance at this setup and they were like wow.. what is that setup? i said "Android" The one guy even got a fascinate because he liked it so much.. and I showed him how to setup these icons.. I'm already looking to change my setup.. the beauty of android.. so much customization.

    Sweeeeet! I like the standard icons, but i'm a huge fan in making my screens set up differently than your usual fare (a la iphone). Thanks for the info.

    Was using this one:

    I was using this:

    [​IMG]

    With the scrolling dock so I had no icons on my home screen. Just widgets. But then I decided to give the tiles look a shot:

    Main screen:
    [​IMG]

    Right screen:
    [​IMG]


    It does use a ton of ram and sometimes scrolls slower due to all the desktop visualizer widgets being used... but it's so sweet looking.

    Very nice! Did you add your own green tint to your weather icons?
