Very nice work!

>>god you gotta love animated desktops for phones as well as animated themes. Beats me why a smartphone cannot do that?! S60 I mean. Hence 1 major reason I'm selling mine soon.



So there is actually something a "dumb"phone can do that a smartphone can't? \o/

Cant download it from Rapidshare. I waited for it to download. When it said complete I looked in the 'recieved files' folder on my pc and nothing. Did a search on my pc and didn't find anything either.

CyberVisitor,

The image that you are referring to is part of the W8/9 startup animation. I would presume that it is a GIF file.

Sorry, I don't have access to the system of the phone to get that particular file that you asking for.


optiplex,

I tried the converted Black Walkman theme that you did for the W9. It looks great. High quality. No pixelization or deterioration of the images.

Can I request that you reduce the file size? The 1.35mb file size is slowing down the phone.

Thanks again.

@CrackerJack

It was very late yesterday when I started porting the theme. So I just resized the images without thinking much about the size. However I did noticed that the file was big and suspected that it might slow the phone down, but was feeling too sleepy at the time to do anything about that . Iíll optimize the color palette to reduce the size. Will do it when I get home.

optiplex,

Thanks. I have your 'original' black walkman theme on my K750. It really does look great.

Looking forward to having the same theme on my W9.

It was kind of a tedious process. But I did it anyway cos I had lot of time to kill that day and really liked the animated walkman logo

* First I took out the animated gif file of the standby screen from the original theme. Then extracted individual frames using a gif animation tool (canít remember the exact name I think it was gif animator or something like that; sorry Iím not at home so I cant check it right now).
* Then I made the background of each frame transparent (removed all the unnecessary parts except the W logo) and merged it with my new gray color background
* FinallyI made a new animated gif file with the modified frames.

Luckily in my case the original animated W logo had a black background, so taking off the W wasnít that difficult.

Maybe there are more sophisticated tools to edit animated gif files as single files, but I didnít find any. And Iím not a graphics designer, so I donít know much about imaging software.
