Help with icon sizing please
Hi, I'm working on an iPhone 4s theme but I can't seem to make the icons the right size. I want oversized tile like icons that almost touch each other.
Here's an example of the icon sizes I need
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
i want them to fill the blocks.
So far if i try making a theme folder (themename.theme) and use an icons folder and name the icons the name of the app (example, Photos.png) the normal 114x114 icon size is way to big, but if i try scaling them down to something like 75x75, its close to the right size but the icons look really grainy and awful.
Other thing i have tried is using a "Bundles" folder in the theme, putting the app folder (com.apple...) and using "[email protected], but regardless of icon size, it auto scales the icon to the normal app icon size.
I hope this makes sense to everyone haha any help on this would be awesome, thank you.

Hmm, keep the transparent BG for the native apps at 118x120 can u not resize via Transform>Scale to the correct size? e.g 75x75 and place it on the 118x120 transparent layer then save it as you need to?
Stick with the Bundles method, that is the preferred method of theme architecture...Twitter ID: @Jato_BZ
