    what about for those of us who do not have photoshop? lol...i'm sure i could find a free trial somewhere or something but i don't have money to spend on any more software. anyone know where i could find a free trial?

    or, anyone know where i can find a tutorial or something to create a dialer keypad? that would work too. i'm using the GiMP for windows right now(windows xp btw)...most things in photoshop i can translate to do in the GiMP but it doesn't have actions so i don't know what the actions you programmed are doing, so i can't replicate them lol.

    as your last step, change the opacity of the entire image to something like 60%

    You should be able to change the layer with all the buttons merged. This should be a layer just above the main background layer and your original wallpaper layer.

    Thank you BadboyBill Your dialer pictures look great, but after I try myself first I recieve a several errors of the action, then after I press continue to each one my picture cover the dial pad perfect, the square divisions do not appear only appears my picture, the numbers and the letters but do not appear the the square.

    What I do to solve that? I'm using Photoshop CS3

    Thank you for your help

    Default Retro Dialer
    Since a bunch of the Dialer junkies hang out in here I thought I'd throw a quick mention of a little project of mine in the thread.

    I see that people are having problems replacing the screen area and are having issues with light up dialer buttons... I took some time yesterday and figured out all the bits that need to be replaced and modified to really get a full dialer replacement.

    Check out the thread I started in regard to this if it so interests you...

    hmm...it just seems that the pic im using wont let the blue through when i press it, cuz i reduced the opacity down to like 40 percent, and i barely saw the blue showing through when i pressed the buttons...

    is there a way to change the color of the buttons when you press them?

    ok i finally got the blue to show when i pressed the buttons. i had to set the opacity on layer 2 to 30% and the background to 40%. try that and hopefully it should work for whoever is having the same problem i was.

    yeah it did work, but it makes the pic super dark, right?
    is there a way to still have the brightness of the pic, but have the effect there? prolly not, but oh well...

    HEllo... all... im new to this forum and this is the most awesome app yet... makes things so much easier... thank you. Well i was having trouble like others when comes to the #2 button... solved it thanks to someone noticing that you have to hide the "layer deep" layer... Not sure if anyone tried this yet but i simplified the whole procedure by adding new actions. Now all you have to do is open the picture you want to use and press play... This is what i did

    1. Copied the original bar dialer PSD to the Adobe Photoshop Directory
    2. Opened the picture i was going to use for the new dialer
    3. Selected the first action in step three and pressed record on the bottom of the actions window.
    4. Resized my image to 320x273
    5. Pressed stop at the bottom of the actions window. This created a new action called Image Size. Move this action to the very top right below Step 3 (keep this new action highlighted).
    6. Pressed Record again. This time open the original bar dialer PSD (that hopefully you moved somewhere that it wouldn't get deleted).
    7. Pressed Stop on the bottom of the actions window. This should create a new action call "Open". Make sure this action is right below the "Image Size" action.
    8. Deleted the "Merge Layer, Stop, Stop" actions. Should be the last three actions.
    9. Closed all open images.
    10. Opened the image i was going to use to create the new dialer.
    11. Selected Step 3 and pressed play. It should run. Hopefully... but hey were almost done. If your like me and get the problem with the #2 button do the next couple steps.
    13. Select the last action "Select layer "layer 2""
    14. Press record on the bottom of the actions window
    15. Scroll the Layers window and click the eyeball next to "Layer Styel Deep"
    16. Press Stop. This should create a new action called Hide Layer "Layer Style Deep". This fixed the problem with the #2 button.
    17. Congraduations your all done...

    Now all you have to do is open your image that you want to use to create your new dialer and press play on Step 3 in the actions window.

    Oh yea... sorry for such the long tutorial. Kinda wrote it up the same time i was doing it myself.
