    I recently switched to Atomic Web Browser but I didn't like the icon so I found one to replace it. I renamed it icon@2x.png and put it in the .app folder. As you can see the icon has a deep shadow surrounding it. I've changed the resolution multiple times but no matter if its 114x114 or 122x124 the shadow remains. Any idea how to fix this? [​IMG]

    I usually use the summerboard method. Make a folder call Icons and put that folder into your theme. Then all you need to do is name your new icon and place in Icon folder and name it Internet@2x.png & Internet.png and click on summerboard in winterboard. Much faster and easier to manage for me…

    You could also try to name the icon capitalized or Internet@2x~iphone.png also.

    Or it could just be the icon already had a mask on it and if it's a appstore icon it'll double mask the icon. In which case the summerboard mode will suit you best...

    Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to avoid using winterboard, etc so I tried it this way. In case anyone has the same problem I fixed it by cropping the canvas area around the icon in photoshop. Now there is no shadow.

    Yea I saw that after I posted. Mobile lol... So the icon you choose already had a frame around it?

    I guess so. Afterwards I tried just replacing it with the stock mobile safari icon and the shadow returned.. which is weird since it doesnt appear around safari.. I would think it would already be framed properly.:confused:

    Any advice framing an icon properly in photoshop?
