    I can put the picture on my start screen but it's just the picture broken up in tiles. I don't understand how you get it so all your tiles go over it.

    you should use images with the .png files which have transparency in them. then you can see the start background through the transparent areas in the tiles

    Are you guys not bothered by those spacer tiles which are not doing anything but only displaying static images? I don't mind if we can associate apps to those static tiles, but we can't. Unless you have only a small handful of apps and related pinned tiles, otherwise those static spacer tiles are really taking up valuable screen spaces.

    those "static images" give you a cool start screen... don't you think its worth allotting space for?

    there are other apps that can do this but you'll have to split and save your pngs manually (using photoshop .etc).. its not going to be a smooth ride but it can be done. and as to which apps to use, I'm not sure, most of the free ones I tried either didn't support png or couldn't scale the image to the full size of the tile and left some border. I haven't yet tried out any paid ones tho

    Basically the App just pins dead tiles with images.... it is pretty simple and easy to use for novices.

    However if your looking for more functionality, best use something like skinery themes.

    With the is you can pin blank transparent tiles (make sure colour is set to accent colour) or with images and associate functionality like dial a number, launch a webpage. Heck you can even make a animated tile and breath some movement to your start screen.

    So combined with an app that has cropping abilities, the possibilities are endless :P.

    Edit: added screenshots,

    It's a little crude, just to show what you can do with some of the apps in the store and in this case - Skinery Themes.wp_ss_20150205_0001.pngwp_ss_20150205_0010.png

    Just a note, you can also resize your #TileArt static images to the small blocks if you want to use this cool feature but don't want to give up as much real estate on your screen.

    Any app can make you brush away the background from a picture so it can be perfectly cropped? I know I can do it with PhotoShop, but it would be nice to do it directly from phone.

    Guess is down to individuals. I will rather use the precious screen spaces for useful tiles than static images.

    Check you PM :), I don't want to derail this thread with screenshots from another app.

    no it doesn't.. most apps do not have that feature. TileArt is one of the first.
    It does!

    Just set it to use your accent colour.

    Also most apps do have that feature, it has become essentially a standard feature... It would be silly of the devs not to implement it.
