    Hi all,

    I'm working on a (most probably free) theme, named The Shad0w, that emphasizes the shadow of the icons. It is still work in progress, but I need some help with some basic questions. Im building it with Photoshop on Windows.

    - How large needs the icons to become? ...x... and do the need to become PNG?
    - How do I submit it to a known repo, like ModMyi and in what format?

    Check out my first design:

    Also let me know if you digg it.

    For iOS 7 the icon size is 120 x 120 p. you must create a bundle folder for each icon. If you never made a theme download any iOS 7 theme from Cydia to see the folder structure.

    There's a button "Dev Portal" on top right of this website where you can submit Themes with modmyi.

    There are one or two long-shadow themes already available by the way

    Thanks! I indeed noticed that there are several other themes based on the long shadow style. I do however continue, just to learn the process of building and releasing a theme.

    Sorry, my PC with these psd files (stupid) died. Need to start over. But will do it asap, now that I have bought brand new PC parts.

    I like it. Ahh no thumbs up smiley option

    If you want your theme to be on Macciti then instructions for that are on the upload page, scroll down to "Preparing Your Theme for Cydia"
    General Cydia (Overview)

    btw there's a song called "The Shadow"
