-568h@2x~ipone.png to the larger file. I then went to settings and browsed the wallpapers to find the file I just uploaded.
As I say, it may not be the easiest way but seemed to be the only way I could get it to work for me.

Is it necessary to add those extensions to the uploaded files? In the root directory, the thumbnail is a png file and the actual wallpaper is a jpg file format. I wonder if you can simply deposit both file formats into the wallpapers folder and it would work? Also, do those custom wallpapers need to be a certain dimension or will the theme scale accordingly?

You should save it as JPG or Dreamboard will not properly remove the wallpaper from view when you choose a different one. Thus, eating up your ram if you consistently change wallpapers. They also should be the dimensions of the current wallpapers included in the theme (1100 x 690) or any variation of these dimensions. If they are not, you risk your wallpaper looking stretched or distorted.
If you don't care about the distortion risk, then it doesn't matter because Dreamboard will scale it to the proper dimensions.

Thanks to all for the help. So there is no coding required to add wallpapers. You simply save the pictures in PNG and JPEG format and then simply drag them into the wallpapers folder. Is this correct?

3rd Row Steps Guide:
1 You have to replace Overlay & Overlay2 in the Folder GYRO HD Iphone 5/Images, i had to rearrange them because of the 3rd Row
2 .plist for the 3rd Row
3. Animations for the 3rd Row MOD (place in Gyro HD/Widgets/LAW/)
- please rename the Folder to Animations after download

perfect thanks NBE for ur help. Today I tried to put my own photos as wallpapers, therefore i saved my images as png. and jpg. both files i copied in gyro/wallpaper file and renamed then as wallpaper1.jpg and wallpaper1-th.png. Then I checked if my wallpaper was really unter wallpapers after a respring, and there was my wallpaper but when I selected it, it didn't work and showed the original blank wallpaper. Maybe someone could explain the way in a step by step explanantion. Thanks guys for all ur help.

Put them into the Wallpaper Folder and done!
The Mistake you made was: The "W" (it's a great W, not a small)

Thanks NBE, I tried what u said and even doppel checked the size. Everything looks correct, but I only get the wallpaper preview when I wanna select my new one under Settings. And then it is still the the grey background from wallpaper1, which i deleted from my wallpaper images. Therefore I am kinda confused I am tryin it again from the beginnin and hope it will work. Thanks

You are the man!!! Everything from this post will create three rows. I would probably like to keep just 2 at top and bottom. Do you have the Overlay so I can see more of my custom wallpapers? The second row cuts a third off.
Do you have a pic of what three ows look like.
If I insert third row, I assume I'll have to redo all the code I've one to place icons where I want them. It was quite a bit of work as you know.
02-20-2013, 09:28 AM #212
3rd & 4th Row
Another Row @ the Bottom? or is it enough like in the 2nd Pic[/SIZE]
i'll try tonight...
3 Rows @ the Top
2 Rows @ Bottom
6 Rows (with the Dock Row)
that would make 19 Icons per Page
what do you think???
...so with that, i think everybody could place ALL of his favorite Apps on Page1, Page2 ALL the favorite Games, & on Page 3 the Rest...

In my humble opinion, I think more than 4 rows total starts to look a bit cluttered. I think it's perfect. I just wanted to know if there's a way to somehow change the dimensions of the wallpapers (Overlay?) so we can see more of them. The second row you added at the top cuts a third of the wallpaper off. Is there a way to do that?
Any more thoughts on a tutorial showing how to move calendar or other widgets? I'd really like to have it and the badges on the first page.
Just a thought, consider having 4 rows total: upper most and lowest rows having 4 icons each and three in the 2 inner ones?

I have no idea what just happened, I saw the latest Gyro update and lost all of my customization I did via Current and Theme plist, 1st thing it says was cant find info.plist
should I just replace the current and theme with what I saved on my desktop again?

Hi again, everythin works just fine with using different wallpapers NBE, thanks.
1. Right now I am using ur last pblist/ and overlay, and I am tryin to resize the first row from top in the same size as the second row from top. But at the same time I have to resize the overlay, so it will fit perfectly in the space. NBE I would really appreciate it, if u could help me. Because thats the only thing, I still wanna fix.

Looks awesome. How did you get those black/grey borders on the second top row? Is that a black/grey layer added behind image in Photoshop? It adds a nice finishing touch.
Also, I like the first image on the non-dock bottom row with splitting the first and third icon to half. How was this done?

i replaced the apple maps with google maps and the google maps icon has notifications on it. i don't understand how a maps application has notifications?
edit: it is showing the notifications for the "app store" icon. i have google maps on the 2nd page, top middle icon and the app store is in the same position on the third page. any idea why this would be happening? thanks.
