    is there a way to change icons opacity to make them more see through? Do i have to edit something in the "dim icon" from winterboard to make it more transparent? Or is it something in the plist?

    this is an easy one ...when making themes put the icons name and use a blank image ..

    I just said the post before, I don't want to theme each icon seperatley. When I have 100+ icons, It would be easier to have a plist to just change the springboard icon opacity.

    will you could just take a transparent theme select the icons you want put them in a new theme folder and then only the icons you pick will be different,

    I'm avoiding that. I have 100+ icons. It's not pratical to have each on be themed. plus, i don't want it themes with something like glaklart, I want it to be like "dim icons" that surik made, just more opaque. That works with a plist, how everything will have the same effect, your theming idea works with individual icons.

    It's just the plist, I'll send you one that *should* make the opacity lower.
    EDIT: forgot to include in my pm that it can easily be tweaked to be more/less transparent so feel free to ask.
    Also I wasn't sure if I could post the plist in the thread, since it's modified from saurik's, but since it is just a few lines of text that I changed to do what I wanted I guess I should be able to post it...

    i was wondering if i could also get that hack you were talking about, i too am looking for a way to just adjust the opacity of my icons with out dealing with an entire theme change.

    thanks
