Android 9 patch - pack 8 - special request

Hi all,

This pack contains 10 pngs also. The 5 first pngs are special request for Ash :)

Hope you enjoy and again free to use in your commercial android projects.


  1. Hi Richard,

    GOD BLESS YOU. This morning I got up and saw your post indicating the steps that I need to take. I went to Benjamin Moore's website and found the colors that I wanted. I went for my morning run thinking all the way what I need to do. I come home and refresh your website and you have uploaded the buttons for me. Thank you so much.

    I have uploaded the buttons you have made for me and they worked straight away. I don't use a button_selector as it is easy for me to change the button drawable at code level.

    I will still make an attempt to draw these images myself as I am sure the management will want changes once these see the possibility and the power of these images!

    What I want to learn is:
    1. How to take a image from Benjamin Moore's webiste and make them have round edges using Gimp.

    2. How to add a border (assuming once again this is done using Gimp).

    3. Finally convert the modified png to 9.png using Android Draw9patch utility.

    Please bear with me while I go through this learning curve.

    Thanks a million Richard.

  2. ahah :) No problem Ash.

    I don't use Gimp so I can't help you much there.
    Check online for Gimp Tutorials, you'll find plenty.

    Same goes for creating the 9.png files.

    Good luck!
