I have had a lot of requests to change the home screen icons (images and text)… so to make it more easier and fun I have uploaded the Photoshop files for you guys to change every icon to whatever you wish… with some minor editing.
Ok so I will include a how to here… once you get the hang of it its pretty simple.
I will give the tutorial to change the ‘MOVIES’ icon… repeat with the other icons.
Step 1: Download the files and open them up.
Step 2: Assuming you have a new movies image, open it up with Photoshop then copy and paste it into the ‘main_xxxxxx_icon_f’ file screen… be sure its in the ‘Icons’ folder.
Step 3: Now we have the new image in the right screen its time to edit it to shape…Resize the image to be slightly bigger than the existing icons… make sure to use the % values top of screen to maintain the correct aspect ratio… and make sure its in the correct position… the image should be spilling over the blue glow to allow cutting to shape.
Step 4: now that it has been resized slightly bigger and in the right position we need to cut it to the right shape and size… you will see a layer called ‘select with magic wand tool’ highlight this layer and do exactly what it says… select it with the magic wand tool… you should see a flashing line the shape we want.
Step 5: with the flashing outline still on, highlight our resized image layer and copy and paste it… you will see a new layer above the old one to the shape we want. Delete the old original layer and your done with a shiny new image icon. Be sure to turn on the correct text to suit the icon you just made and of course it can be edited to read what you like.
Now the main icon has been edited we can easily edit the smaller side icons in 1 step.
Step 1: Copy the new main icon you just made into the ‘main_xxxxxx_icon_n’ screen and resize it to w 80% and h 80% and put it into the correct positioning… with the tint layer visible it should snap to the correct position. Be sure to turn on the correct text to suit the icon you just made and of course it can be edited to read what you like.
Last Step for both is to save the image as a jpeg into the image folder with the correct name… change ‘xxxxxx’ to ‘videos’ in this example.
Ok guys hope this is clear and you have fun changing the images to whatever pleases you.
Also to find this easier I will add it to the first post.
And one last thing… Please share your new Icons here if you wish to share.
