    As i am sure many of you have seen. The iNav. Inav Edits. Iblue and themes like this.

    They will often have a larger icon. For a App to go on the Middle. And Take up a page.

    Like in the center.


    How could i do this? Is it as simple as make the image bigger? and surround it with blank icons?


    How is this done?

    I normally find a load of themes, Pick bits i like, find my own wallpaper. And mesh them together.

    And i would like to in-cooperate that giant icon in some of mine. How? xD

    Check out the iNav theme. Download the theme and check out the icons.

    Use GIMP. It is a Photoshop look-a-like.

    GIMP is free. Easy I don't know. If it is just like Photoshop then it is just confusing when you start, but it is still simple.

    Well I don't know how GIMP is, but try to make a new document in GIMP and see if you could make the background transparent, and if not your going to have to use the eraser tool.

    Will the eraser make it transparent though?

    Cus normally if it is transparent. It goes white with little grey squares.

    Well with Photoshop it will go transparent. You could always get the trial version of Photoshop, then I could help you more.
