    How do you make the status bar invisible? I saw people doing this by adding an effect in Photoshop to the top of their wallpapers. I can't figure it out. I tried searching and found nothing.

    Thanks

    Edit: Like this one I found on another thread...

    Add a white bar at the top of the wallpaper and make it with >50% opacity.

    I haven't tried it before, let me open up PS.

    I can still see the bar. That just blends in with the wallpaper, no?

    I would add a box over the wallpaper that looks as dark as status bar but not cover the status bar area with it.

    Do something like this in Photoshop
    And then the OS will fill in the light part at the top for the status bar

    Sweet. What filter / blending modes did you use?

    Just overlay blending filters, the opacity varies with every picture, and a lot of it is a hit and miss, I'll keep adjusting it later tonight.
