Pictures/Images as Tile Backgrounds

psyctto 2 years ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 months ago 7 1 duplicate

Searching around the internet for a more eye pleasing interface to SmartThings, I came across SmartTiles and further a custom dashboard created a few years ago. https://community.smartthings.com/t/my-custom-smarttiles-dashboard/48592

Looks like a nice feature that could add a nice look and feel to the project.  Usability would also improve greatly with nontechy folks that like eye candy and don't want the regular tiles approach.  I know this was previously done in the CSS, which is now gone, but an option to do so again would be great.

Thanks for the idea!

Please add your Topic VOTES ... 


As stated with my merged topic, having the option to choose custom images, instead of only icons, would give the users so much customization and the ability to turn AT into something even more amazing than it already is.

this would be a nice customization I second this request

Wow, love Action Tiles.  Just spend a couple hours playing with it. Thank you.

Feature Request:

Set image for each tile and for the entire background.  Opacity and a Darken overlay settings for each image.  I am willing to donate and extra $50 to you, if you can do this.  

Thanks for the donation offer, Maui ... but we're not a charity. ☺️
