I know im a new guy and i swear to you all that i do a good straight hour of searching before posting a question.
I dont know what the name of this graphic/effect is so its hard to search for.
With iElegance when i click on an icon the shadow is off center..
Is there a way to disable that? I deleted all background shadows but when i click on the icon that shade still works.

Hope this helps.

You know, I did not use the theme, I just deleted the file (well, I added a 1 to the file name in case I want it one day)
The file is in this folder System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
The file name is one of these two.
The file name for the Muilt task dock to get rid of those shadows is

Nice! I've been looking for this too... driving me crazy!

Thanks for sharing guys. Driving me nuts looking for a solution to get rids of the background shadows after changing springboard themes.
Just to confirm what I did by the following these instructions on SSH: System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
Look for: IconDarkeningOverlay.png and added a 1 before IconDarkeningOverlay.png (1IconDarkeningOverlay.png)
No more annoying shadows............Big Thanks to galaxygrrl & Invader Zim for sharing guys.

That was annoying me too. I think the shadow would have been fine if the system had reduced the offset and placed it below the icon but, as it was, it looked stupid.

hello all, not sure if the original question was ever answered regarding removing the shadow when icons are clicked
i did go to System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app, however there is no IconDarkeningOverlay.png for me to remove or add the (1)
my icons are not traditionally shaped and it is quite annoying when i "click" on them with the shadowing
any help would be much appreciated
