Customize Icon Screen
  1. Touch and hold the icon you want to customize, then release the icon. An editing icon appears in the upper-right corner of the app icon.


    If an icon you placed can be resized, you'll see a blue box around the icon after you touch, hold, and release it. Drag the edges of the box to resize it.

  2. Tap the app icon (while the edit icon is still displayed).

  3. Tap the icon design you want from the available Theme icon choices and change the size (if desired), then tap OK.


    Tap Photo icon, then tap Add new. Set the size for the icon, then tap OK. Select the image you want to use for the app. Crop the image (choose Crop photo or Crop picture, then Always or Just once), then tap OK.


    Your custom photo icons are saved so you can easily select them for any of your icon images.
