    Icons question

    Advertisement



    what's going on guys new to the blackberry scene. I'm tryign to build this theme and on some of the themes I dl from other users the home screen icons are gray until you scroll over them with the trackball then that highlighted one comes in color, how exactly is this done so there not color all the time, taking away from the background image?

    You need to use a different set of Icons, greyed out for the non-focus (First Column of images) on the Icon Inspector screen. The images in the first column shown until you roll over the icon when it will change to the icon in the second column.

    I make mine using PhotoShop, but I assume GIMP and other Graphics Editors can accomplish it also. I don't use the greyed out, but change the opacity for mine.

    Layer Opacity, setting from 0 to 100 percent. 0 is fully transparent.

    Check in the download section for theme goody packages. Most of the packages have some transparent or shadow type icons. Any Icons I create are specific to the theme I'm creating. And without knowing what device you are themeing for, I wouldn't know if mine will work for your themes.
