    Default how to create a theme that works in both landscape and portrait
    i was going to post this in the section about new themes for winterboard, but i wasnt sure. feel free to move it if im putting it in the wrong section. Im a bit of a noob at this whole theming thing, but ive been trying to make a them for my ipad from a .gif file and i did it but it only shows in portrait mode. is there any way like any codes that i can use that will enable the image to rotate when my screen rotates? any help is appreciated.

    Thats a good question, I do theming myself but only on the iPhone/iPod, so the iPad with its ability to display a potrait and landscape style springboard Im not so sure. But thinking on an intuitive note you could probably make two backgrounds one to fit the portrait size and layout and the same that fits the landscape size and layout naming the two images in your theming folder something like
    "Wallpaper_Portrait.png" and
    "Wallpaper_Landscape.png"
    Well I hope this helps, have fun theming ; ) - ORGANISM

    Ok, so how do the pictures not end up stacking?

    Oh yes and I forgot to mention that the image always ends up in the upper left. Is there a way to center it?

    I do not know how to center the image with any sort of method because it should "fit to screen" in which case it would be center. My only guess is that the image your using is not the right pixel size or when you edited it the "canvas" size doesnt fit your image which usually occurs in GIMP (a photo editing prgram). Good luck to you - ORGANISM
