    Im trying to make a custom battery that doesn't conform to the dimensions of the regular battery (i.e. 264 x 129). My battery is vertical oriented.

    But from my various trials, i've gotten my battery images within the ballpark of pixel ranges, but what im seeing is that the area that the battery is shown within, is restricted...

    So my battery images are appearing off-center, and cut off

    I've got a screenshot from my ipod, that should help

    Is there a way to amend the area where the battery image appears, so that a "battery" that is not shaped like the original, can appear correctly?

    I don't get your situation.
    What do you want exactly?

    I've got it cropped so it will appear centered from left to right

    the canvas is 193 X 204 and the "M" is tightly cropped and moved to the right

    if you want it to go lower add some transparent padding to the top

    you have photoshop?

    anyway if you want to view this one on your iPod, rename it BatteryBG_17.png so it will stay on while you play with it .

    no problem, it's fun

    i noticed that mine appears much higher than yours, i seem to have this problem with my batteries, don't know why.

    but just play with the canvas size and move the image around till it works how you like it.

    i generally play around with #17 so i can see it while i'm fully charged and once i get it right, i edit the rest to match

    don't forget to respring each time you change it or it wont take effect
