Picture Purrfect HD in Cydia IS also SD compatible for those who didn't know
Inspiration comes from every direction and this is a "PicturePurrfect" example of that...well, more like 4 examples!
One icon set that started with the idea of using the ABC Logo giving a 'Fisheye' look to the icons
One icon set stemmed from an old PSP theme from french artists called 'Photography' that has never left my thoughts This is the default icon set for the theme.
The 3rd, and my favorite because it was an icon set that finally matched the UI that I have designed, 'Stacked'. 4 layers of color, two grey one pink, and the top; the perfect picture for each icon.
The last is a some what experimental set using low res free Glyphish's icons and some that I have redrawn to cut out from the dark and show off the pink layer of the above design. Something that may be pursued further in the future and is somewhat incomplete at the moment because I wasn't really impressed with it...not until I can create my own :P
When using the other 3 icon sets, always keep PP WBHD.theme activated at the bottom of the list!
Being a part of the theme community has introduced me to some really great and talented people!
KrsChris put one of the greatest widgets ever with his Revi themes, and has been kind enough to let me modify it to use right here. I have taken that widget further and truely hope you enjoy it.
Setup of the widget is the same, browse to PP Weather\Setup\Config.CSS
In this file is where you set your location id, go to Yahoo! Weather - Weather Forecasts | Maps | News After you enter your location and in your address bar at the end of the link is the code you need to enter here.
Below that is the option for F or C
Ok now here's the fun part...you like to customize right? Well now ANYONE can twist and tweak this widget extremely easy!!
Let's first continue with the config. Now you can add and remove elements of the widget by changing the true/false in the config.css file!
var WidgetShelves = true;
This gives you the chance to add shelves to your background...or remove them.
Make your own shelves and add to \Resources\Images\shelves.png
var WeatherCircle = false;
This will show an image behind the weather, the example given is using the FishEye icon
Create your own by using the image at \Resources\Images\shadow.png and mask it with mask.png while you are there, why not add a background by editing weatherfill.png *this uses the same mask.png to fit the circle*
var WeatherBox = true;
To break the widget away from your icons turn this on and make your own at \Resources\Images\WeatherBox.png
Now there are 2 images showing in the widget compared to the original Revi theme. This is showing the [b]homescreen and lockscreen image[b]! So you can now have 2 custom photos added to your homescreen image on the left and lockscreen on the right.
Set those images using the photo roll image and set home and lockscreen, then respring for changes.
I have also added a rotating information that fades between 'Last updated time'\'Location name' at the top and 'Min/Max temperature'\'Sunrise/Sunset times'
So those were the front layers...what about that back layer? You say you have alot of wallpapers on your phone and using iFile or ssh is a pain in the butt..Well I found the tweak for you! Thanks to an old tweak by DarkWeaver now you can have a decrypted copy of the wallpaper you set as homescreen and this widget will use that as the background!
Details and download for JPEGifier
After that is enabled here's what is next:
Set your background wallpaper by going to settings - wallpaper and set home screen and you can set the lockscreen and it will use that. This will add a converted jpg that the widget will use rather than the default one Keep in mind, when you set the homescreen from settings it WILL change the left image as well, so after you use the settings menu, go to photo album and set a homescreen image and a lockscreen image, the photo album DOES NOT create the converted image. After that respring to see your changes.
Well that's it for now...I hope you like this!
Color mods are questionable right now. The pink is NOT that obtrusive and gives a great pop in contrast to the dark greys.

Left and Right images are like old widget, center image changes per random choices in photo album thanks to some html help from Gan-Man's OS7 photo widget
