Ladies and Gentlemen, from my last theme DeZire I present to you
Like a Dream... the way YOU want it.
I thought of that phrase the day I sat down and said, "How can I make DeZire even better?" and for the rest of the time making this theme I had that one objective in mind.
Creating a theme that not only pushed the bar visually, but allowed FULL CUSTOMIZATION for the user - Having WHICH icons you want WHERE you want!
ICONS FOR THEME DEAL
Ok everyone I have a deal for you! If you want the theme for FREE when it is released you can do the following (trust me it is so easy =):
- Create 50 Icons that AREN'T on the Icons List
- Create both HD (320x206) and SD (160x103) versions
- Submit in a zip for me to check and you'll be added on the "Icon Creators List"
- Make sure to include a text file with the icons you created!
- The zip should be named as follows "yourname - howmanyicons.zip"
On release (and afterwards) I will send an email to those on the "Icon Creators List" and they will be able to download Dream for FREE!
Note: The checking process ensures the icons are acceptable for release (not stretched images, good composition, suits nicely with the theme, etc) AND ensures the 50 you submit have not been made already*.
*There maybe a situation in which the "Icon List" is not updated when more than one person is making icons simultaneously and more than one person submits icons that were not on the list. IMPORTANT: I will accept whoever submitted first and notify the other person that the icon was already made.
Also to help with making the SD icons, search "imageresize" on mmi and look for the thread talking about resizing images from iphone 4 (link doesn't work for some reason). Credits to Kevin
Please watch the last video in this post for details.
ONE MORE THING!
Make CERTAIN the name of the icons you make:
- Are named EXACTLY (case sensitive, include/don't include spaces, include symbols if needed) as they appear when you go to Editing Mode in DreamBoard and choose from the list!!! - see video below!!
- For HD Icons (320x206) include "@2x" before ".png" (Sample... "[email protected]")
- For SD Icons (160x103) DO NOT include "@2x" (Sample... "Mail.png")

AUTO CREATE PERFECT DREAM ICONS FOR WINDOWS(UPDATED)
1. SETUP MENU
Dream comes with a fully integrated Setup Menu from which you can choose:
- How many pages you want
- The titles for each page
The Setup Menu can be accessed instantly from the theme so you can keep Dream the way YOU want. Want one giant page of scrolling icons? Or maybe ten pages for all your different categories? You choose!
2. INSTANT ACCESS TO EDITING MODE
Along side the Setup Menu you can quickly enter Editing Mode and position your icons where you want with ease.
3. UNIQUE LOCKSCREEN
Another thing you will notice about Dream is its rather unique lockscreen. The way it works is simple, slide the key into the lock then tap the lock (I added nice help tips for those who don't get it).
4. 30 HANDPICKED WALLPAPERS
I spent A LOT of time going through wallpapers (over a thousand) to find a nice collection of wallpapers.
There are 6 schemes (Blue, Purple, Red, Yellow, Green, Black) - lol the teaser says 5 - 10 wallpapers in each.
Each wallpaper is panoramic and scrolls with the icons.
5. NEW STYLE OF THE CLASSIC DEZIRE ICONS
Dream uses the same style of icons as the DeZire icons with a fresh look.
Here is a video on how to create your own using Photoshop (remember to add "@2x" before ".png" if you are using a Retina Display device).
