keep seeing the term auto create thrown around on the theme release boards is this simply a photo action that will turn a standard icon into the theme style icon?...

No it's done within the them if I remember correctly. In your theme you need folder called UIImages and inside that you need AppIconMask.png AppIconOverlay.png AppIconShadow.png the mask is background the overlay is the icon itself.

here is a question about autocreate.
i made AppIconMask.png, AppIconOverlay.png and AppIconShadow.png for a theme so it can "create" icons.
but that work only for some icons. so, can some one tell me why is that and how can i change it to work for all appstore icons.
here is sa ss, notice the border on LiveScore and Game Time, but there isnt one on Digg and Eurosport

Won't work with stock apps or cydia apps I believe.

I had this problem a while ago.
Some developers pre-make their icons so they don't have to use the overlay; Thus causing a problem for us, because auto create icons won't work with those apps, unless you edit each app's .plist file and take away the pre-rendered icon tag.
I'm just making all of mine individually, lots of work, but less of a headache.

ok, i managed to make autocreate border, but when i want to make something over the actual icon, like some gloss efect or color, it wont work for some icons as u see in ss.
i guess Bradszy is talking about that, but i cant figure what exactly do i need to "take away"
and yea, i know about cache and im using iwipe cache
(this icons are just for testing :-P)

How did you do this actually make the auto create. i have a theme and an uiimage folder which contains the 3 png files but none of my icons change to have my custom over. i used iwipe too but still have nothing??
Please some one help me i have been search these threads but everyone says it only works on some icons. I cant get it to work on any so i must be doing something wrong
