The importance of good and appropriate graphics for your development work is undeniable. Be it an app, a ROM, a tool, or a mod; you’ll probably want to invest a good amount of time and effort into such factors because if the ‘icon’ sucks, the potential user may infer the same for your work. However, not everyone will be adept to create absolute masterpieces, which is why XDA Recognized Developer neroyoung‘s tutorials are much appreciated.
What neroyoung has done is guide users on how to edit images with the software GIMP, a free and open-source alternative to the popular Adobe Photoshop. The guides come in the form of videos hosted on YouTube, and they visually guide users on how to ed. . . READ ON »

Graphics can be hard to come by if you don’t have any money. Either they cost a lot and look really cool or they cost nothing, look really cool but the artist is up to their eye balls in requests.
To help take the load of the free graphics artists, XDA Member Xperiment2012 has started a thread where members can order up free custom graphics. Why, you may ask? Says Xperiment2012:
I am making free GFX for anyone who wants one. I am not a PRO and this is mainly an entertaining way for me to practice and also offer a service to the community. If you would like one please fill out the form below and I’ll get on theme ASAP. If you do not like what is done please give me ideas on how to improve it so you do.
Pros come from people w. . . READ ON »

Lately, we have seen many mods and themes for some of the most used applications on our Android devices and to extend the list of available mods even more, we found one set created by XDA member fernando sor, who has been theming apps and such for over a year. His latest work includes transparent themes for Pandora, XDA app, Gmail 2.3.5, Google Voice, Market and Facebook. Moreover, the developer takes it even further by adding colors to the transparent versions of the aforementioned bunch of apps. You can find the accents in blue, cyan, orange, red, pink, emerald and black clear. In order to install them, just be sure to follow the procedure.
Which one do you prefer? Please let us know by leaving your comments.

You can find some amazing stuff people have done to make their homescreens beautiful and personal. Hopefully some of these ideas will inspire you to create your very own look.

How many of you are using a personalized image on your home screen? I bet the vast majority of us have something “special”. For those of you always looking for a great wallpaper, we have found a great pack from XDA member kanak122. This is the second pack from the original poster and this time, he has included 21 live wallpapers with assorted themes and topics ranging from Christmas to abstract, and from colors to galaxies.

It has been a while since we have seen an original skin design work. This time, XDA member scar45 presents PCB Sense for our Android devices. This skin will completely change your home screen by giving it a PCB look, showing in the center a processor with the Android logo.
This series of skins can be found in five different colors: purple, pink, green, blue, and orange and they will work with all Sense 2.x ROMs. Hopefully, we can convince dev to make future versions supporting Sense 3.0.
Please leave your feedback for the developer.

Perhaps you are one of those members who would love to have a bit of Windows Phone 7 on your Android device. If so, then XDA member abhi0n0nakul gives you the WP7 boot screen animation. The boot screen is presented in three different options: With Android engraved, basic, and original one for WVGA (HDPI) screen resolutions. Moreover, you will find a QVGA (LDPI) version but this one only comes as the original one.
You will need your device to be rooted in order to get it working and the developer also places an easy how-to in case you want to revert back to your previous boot screen. Please leave your feedback.

A few weeks ago I published an article for the first official desktop XDA-Developers wallpaper pack, featuring a collection of different widescreen sizes.
We received a lot of feedback on them, including compalints about a “white bar” down the right side of each wallpaper. I’m happy to say that this has now been fixed. We also received requests for dual monitors, which has now been done in a variety of different sizes, too.
All wallpapers are provided optimised for widescreen monitors. A 4:3 development might be something we include in the next update of this pack, if it’s requested enough. For now, if you are experiencing any issues with the wallpapers, leave them in the comments be. . . READ ON »

Since all this G+ madness started, some have already gotten their invitations and some have not. Judging from it, Google+ could be a good contender for Facebook as the king of social media. However, this is yet to be seen.
In the meantime, XDA member Alankrut posted a way to have your profile picture -avatar- in Google style. The developer created this template using Paint, which all Windows using members will be familiar with. A photoshop compatible version will be added later on.
Instructions to get your own profile picture template are easy, just follow the 8 steps indicated by the developer and voilà!
Please don´t forget to leave some feedback.
