I searched but couldn't find anything.
What do I need to make my own custom icon sets?
I have photoshop. Is it a matter of just resizing an image you created in Photoshop or is it more complex?
By the way, for all those wanting to mod your iPhone ut are worried, don't be.
I was just like you and it worked great for me.
A word of caution, customizing is like getting a tattoo. At first you only want one, next thing you know you have an entire sleeve.

Any 64x64 png file with a transparent background should work

so if I wanted to make a carrier logo, I would just have to resize the PNG to fit that particular "icon"?

Carrier logo is different, the size and tutorial is in my modding info thread (see my sig or the sticky thread)

Photoshop PNG Settings...

PNG is new to me and though I use photoshop for other stuff, like SL, I cant seem to get the images to have nice smooth edges w/o the white halo effect.

Do you have to use a mask? Special settings?
