Has anyone else gave this a try? I read about it on android blog yesterday and decided to give it a try today. It took me a while to find the best size for the icons and i'm sure with a little more tweaking i could get it better, but i think its pretty sweet :
You use launcher pro plus and desktop visualizer to achieve this affect. The tricky part is getting the pixel size just right for it to fit. Im using a droid x and my settings are
Horizontal icons - 355x132
Vertical icons - 141x355
You will have to mess around to see where yours fit. To do it you just set launcher pro plus up, go in to preferences, advanced, and select 5 rows. Then you add the desktop visualizer widget 1x2 and use your picture to resize it. Take away the label if you put the label on yourself in the image. It took me about an hour and a half, but im not that great with photo editing. I used regular old MS paint. If anyone else does it, post a pic!
