Sorry, but I don't understand what you're referring to. Unaware of any option to 'Disable the dim when setting a backgroumd'

Sorry I should have been more clear. :/
Ok for example, when you select a pic on your iPad and choose to set it as your background there is a "dim" that occurs and the picture is not as bright on your background as the original photo. Pretty much I want to disable that dim if I can because obviously I want the picture brighter.

That's interesting. I can't duplicate it on my iPad 2.
A camera roll picture is just as bright when set as Home screen background.

Hmmm... I'll put up some screenshots in a bit(probably should have done that already) so you can see what I mean.
The bottom of the pic doesn't dim on your iPad??

Ahhh. I see what you mean. The bottom part (maybe 10-15%) is darker.
Never noticed it before. Could be part of the dock image or a shadow effect ... only a guess.
I'll bet one the theme'ing gurus know about this

Yah it doesn't bother me soo much on the iPhone. I just like bright pictures and when it looks dark... Not my thing. Thanks for your help, hopefully someone can drop in and suggest an option.

No problem. I did a bit more testing -- with stock backgrounds from different iOSs. From what I can tell, the images were created with a slightly darker bottom and don't appear to be darker when used.

Interesting, i wonder why they have it setup like that. The screen is not as bright so maybe to save battery life.

My thought is 'to better highlight the doc' ...

That sounds about right

A great theme'ing question. Think Winterboard There are hundreds, maybe thousands of active themes and MMi threads focused entirely on customizing the iDevice look and feel. Have fun

Yah I'll drop a line to the peeps at the buuf section. Thanks again for your help.
You can close this thread if you like.
