So I have posted my homescreen in this forum and google plus and some people have been asking for the tiles (icons) I am using. So I made a 7zip file and attached it here with the tiles (icons) I am using. These were all made by me....with stock photos of course with some minor (if any) tweaks.

These tiles are designed for use with Launcher 7 Pro. If I make more I will post them in this thread.

Enjoy!


preview image tiles are in the .7z file below

Tutorial time: by bryman27

1. Download Launcher 7 from the market. Free or Donate.
2. Download one or more of the packs attached in the OP to your computer. Open the downloaded file(s) with 7-zip or any other utility that can open 7z files.
Copy the images inside the 7z file(s) to your phone with whatever method you prefer. Mount the sdcard back to your phone if it was mounted to your computer.
3. Open Launcher 7 by pressing the home button then choosing Launcher 7.
If that doesn't work, go to settings -> applications -> manage applications -> [your current launcher] -> clear defaults, then try again.

How to add a themed tile:
Pin the tile you want by tapping the arrow in the top right and long-pressing the app you want to pin and choosing "Pin to home screen".
Tap "Title" and delete everything in it.
Then tap "Tile size" and choose the size of your icon (the sizes are in the file names).
Then tap "Icon" and choose "Custom icon".
Then tap "Custom icon options". Set "Bitmap type" to "Bitmap from SD card".
Then tap "Select image from SD card" and find the image you want to use (if you are using the gallery to pick it and you don't see it, you might have to use an app like Rescan Media or just reboot).
Then press your device's back button.
Then tap "Extra options" and choose "Full-tile bitmap (1x1 only)" if you chose 1x1 tile for the tile size. This makes the image fill the entire tile area, but makes you lose missed call counts and unread message counts. (You don't need to choose this option, but it makes it look better. You can change it later if you need the counters.)
Then tap "Click to add tile".

How to choose a custom icon for a tile that is already pinned:
Long-press the tile you want to edit.
Tap the pencil in the top left of the tile.
Delete everything in the "Title" field.
Choose Custom icon in the "Icon" field.
Tap "Select image from SD card" and pick your desired icon. (if you are using the gallery to pick it and you don't see it, you might have to use an app like Rescan Media or just reboot)
Tap "Tile options" and choose "Full-tile bitmap (1x1 only)" if you chose 1x1 tile for the tile size. This makes the image fill the entire tile area, but makes you lose missed call counts and unread message counts. (You don't need to choose this option, but it makes it look better. You can change it later if you need the counters.)
Tap "Modify tile".

I think that's pretty noob proof... but we'll see
