    So I've been keeping an eye out on this whole Android Phone 7 thing, basically since Droid-Life first posted anything about it, about a month or so ago because I like the way Windows Phone 7 interface is done, and I LOVE Android. But every time I've had the same problem. Why can't you mix and match sizes together on one screen without a hodge-podge of dimensional problems? So what did I do? I took it upon myself to fix it. And fix it, I did. After 7 long hours in Photoshop (from 1-3PM and 10PM-3AM), I FINALLY got every dimension of 1x1, 2x1, 3x1, 4x1, 1x2, 1x3, 1x4, 2x2, and 3x3 to match up. Now, there are some conditions. These were made for Droid X. I have a friend who tested these on his Droid 2 and they matched up fine and, in theory, they should work on D1. Also, these will only match up under the following conditions. If you are on Launcher Pro or ADW (for sure, theoretically any launcher that allows 4 columns and 5 rows) with 4 columns and 5 rows, notification bar OFF (I tried it on, the dimensions don't match up, no I will not make all new dimensions for people with notification bars, just turn them off, you can have a swipe gesture in ADW to bring down your pulldown, just set that).

    Now, since I did spend 7 hours of hard work on this, I will not help if you don't duplicate my situation exactly. If you do and dimensions are still off, well, I'll do the best I can, just post which images are off and I'll do my best.

    My Situation:

    Droid X
    ADW Launcher
    5 rows, 4 columns
    No notification bar
    Koveleski's OMGWP7ONADW theme
    Should be the only things affecting it.

    Now, a screenie and the zip (containing test images only [some real ones] and the PSDs [Open in GIMP or Photoshop])

    And the zip is below! Enjoy!

    I was literally just working on this idea of creating 'templates' for all sizes over the past day or two. Thanks to you I'll just trash what I did and take yours :) Thanks pal!

    No problem :) Happy to help everyone out :)

    And, I hate to be this guy, but I'd like to say for the record that I don't NEED credit, but if you're giving it, I'll take it.

    Now, please enjoy.

    Yea I think he was saying that that site only gave certain sizes, and it wasn't really complete. If you download his file he has created photoshop files for just about any size item you want. It's a way better starting point than that original thread...

    Bumping this up!

    I'd like to see this thread take off, as I think the spacing on these icons fit together better than any other version of these W7 type icons that I've seen so far. Thanks to the original poster.

    What the poster there did was he included only certain sizes, odd sizes (3x2?) and his sizes didn't match up. What I did was I started from scratch, creating my own dimensions, images, etc. and got all of the size options (with the exception of 4x4) that DVR comes with, and got them all to match up. No matter what arrangement you put on your screens, every one of my images will match up. That was my goal and, mission: accomplished. Also, it doesn't matter what the screen size is as long as the resolution is the same, AFAIK.

    Thanks for the bump and the kind words. And that was my goal, getting everything nice and pretty! Glad you enjoyed it!
