    Help Making Smoked Glass Effect

    I have tried searching but haven't come up with anything. What settings are being used in photoshop to create the smoked glass effect? I have tried on my own but haven't been able to get it right. Thanks in advance.

    smoked glass background from Music widget

    I pulled this for you since I had to edit it for a friend to transparent. I usually just use the erase tool in gimp or paint.net but photoshop works as well, just figured youd like to see how others made this background hope it helps you.

    I had to zip it for you to d/l or it was resizing and stuff so here you go just unzip the png to play with in photoshop
    http://ot6pcg.bay.livefilestore.com/....9.7z?download

    if you make your own background for this stock Music widget you'd open the apk with 7zip and navigate to the \Music.apk\res\drawable-hdpi-finger\
    once your in that folder go to your explorer then drag the file you edited to this folder it will ask you to overwrite say yes then you can close 7zip

    Next you would copy the Music.apk back to your sdcard
    then using root explorer copy Music.apk to the system/app folder on your phone then long press on the music.apk file and set permissions like in the picture im going to link. then reboot, once your phone boots up put your music widget on your desktop and enjoy the new background you created or just replaced which ever is easier

    I just made my first smoked glass themed widget so I can explain it a little. I did use gimp instead of photoshop though. Start of with a completely transparent background. Then make a black rectangle. After that, use the gradient tool to go from black at the bottom to a very light shade of grey at the top. Add a beveled border to give it a button type look. Last thing to due is turn the opacity to about 75. That will make it semi-transparent. There are more detailed instructions for each step of this if you google them. Hope that helps.

    Here is a link to the Pandor theme I made.

    Thank you both so much for your replies! MAD450r the link to the download that you gave me wouldn't work. It said it couldn't find the server and it came out to 0 bytes every time I attempted to download it. But i appreciate both of you helping me out.
