So here's the skinny... I want to edit a .png icon (from the circlelauncher app)

How do I do that? Do I have to pay for an app that has that feature, because all of the ones that I've found so far that CAN edit it are paid... I suppose I could download an aftermarket/cracked apk, but I'd rather not.

Suggestions? Literally I just want to add text to the middle of a red circle icon.

I should have specified, something I can do from my phone or Tablet. I'm away from my computer for a while (traveling), customization helps kill time between meetings, lol

Photo editor is also good. For on phone. Dont try to edit .9.pngs on your phone though.


They reqire draw9patch. Or the ability to zoom in like 800 percent to see the border pixels

They have a 1 pixel border that u must not touch or it will corrupt them.

Can't get the backgrounds to stay transparent. Very frustrating.

If you use the erase tool. In paint.net it actually makes what ever you erase fully transparent.
And u can scale it any size u want. I have some transparent images i made i can post if u need and u can resize them on phone with photo editor

Thanks, but I still couldn't get it to go. Finally achieved the desired result by importing the .png into uccw and adding text, then using the png I created there as my icon in WL, lol.

End result : (the little circles are the ones I was trying to add text to)
