    Ok, i'm trying to make my first theme, and so far so good, but i'm having some troubles with the app icons. When I make them (60x60) I get this annoying white "box" around them. It looks like the attached file (i don't know how to put it on here not being attached

    are you exporting them as .png with a transparent bg? that looks like the problem

    btw....good theme idea

    edit: also, try the GIMP if your looking for free image design, its better than paint.net

    Im not sure if paint can make transpatent(see-through) backgrounds. You need to always "Save AS">"".png.

    I would suggest Photoshop for theme making.

    you're going to have to make your icon into a .png then label it as the icon you want to replace it by.

    1. Find an icon

    2.make it into 60x60 pixils (sorry I spelled it wrong)

    3. Make a folder and call it theme or whatever

    4. Make a folder in the first folder, call it icons

    5. Say you wanted to replace the videos app picture. Put your picture as 60x60 .png in the icons folder. Call it videos.png

    Sorry if this is hard to understand. I'm on my touch right now. I'll edit it tomorrow afternoon when I get on my computer. I'll also give you a link.

    Try searching for "how to make your own theme"

    Remeber to rep me if this helped or didnt help.
