I made my first wallpaper. How do you like it? Anyone may use if they anybody wants to.

DISCLAIMER: There are more wallpapers I've made from stock images found online. If I don't say it's my original photo, then it's stock and I manipulated it to make the wallpaper. If you hold the copyright for one of the images, let me know and I'll remove it. However, they are available publicly, ya know? so if I remove it, who's stopping others from using and disseminating them?

I will not post anything as my own if I did not do some work on the image myself.

Be sure to check to the end of the thread for more killer wallies!!!!!

I could try that, but I'll have to charge you! Lol! JK!  give me a couple of days.

Here's another one I made. This one did not come from scratch as the other one. This one, the photo is available online if you search. I re-sized it and cropped it to get it just right. I tested it in my One and it looks nice.

P.S. I'm a big fan of this game. I own every title, even the last one you can only get online through PS3.

Ok, I did it in green, so I hope you like it. I hope this is the right grass-green, since the green here in So Cal is more like... brown, lol

I also did a few more from pictures I found online. They are from Super Mario and Zelda. The last one of the hand holding the happy face apple is one of my screencaps from Doctor Who, the first episode "The Eleventh Hour" of the new 5th Series. It's grown up Amy holding the Happy Face Apple she gave to the Doctor when she was little. Still fresh because it had only been 5 minutes for the doctor.

PS. Pictures are not cropped. If you go to the bottom of the post, there's a horizontal scroll button to see the right side of the picture. Please post if you like them or don't like them.

I made a few more. The speedometer you won't find anywhere else because... ready? IT'S MY CAR'S SPEEDOMETER!! Yes, I took a picture of my speedometer (while I was parked unfortunately, that is why the needle is at 0) and made them into these wallpapers. I rather like the green one as it doesn't get me confused with the clock numbers, but that's because my clock background is transparent. If your clock background is dark, then it won't matter. Anyway, both look nice.

Anyway, there's a little something for everyone. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope you all like them.

No. They did not come from there. I have the original pictures and I resized them and cropped them, and some of them I adjusted the color, transparency, and all that other stuff. The only one that may have come from there would be the Packers one as when I googled "green" images, that one came up and I downloaded it and did not check where it came from. I will check, and if so, I will remove it. But the other ones, I manipulated the original stock found online.

EDIT: I have however been to various sites and I do have a few I have downloaded from them. Many of them repeat over and over in various sites, so I would not post those here. I am posting only stuff that I have manipulated myself from stock or original images.

EDIT: The packers one is at Zedge. I removed mine so if you're looking for a cool Packers logo for your inspire, go there. Thanks.

EDIT EDIT: Actually, I am not even sure if it came from Zedge as I remember I had to resize it to One size 960x800 so yeah.

Well, here is the original image I used. As you can see, the original stock is a lot larger so I resized it and cropped it. So whoever uploaded it to zedge, had the same idea as I did, only, I must have been a day later.

I would never, knowingly, just pass along something I lifted from another site without credit. In fact, I would probably just give you the link for you to go there.

Khassy, if you are still not convinced, do an experiment. Compare your download with my wallpaper and you'll notice something I just noticed. The one I modified, I did not want to make the bubbles so big, so I did not crop as close to them as the one from zedge. I wanted more of the black background. I think mine looks better, if I say so myself.  Tongue

Just a post to say that I found out where my Packers Logo image came from. It did not come from zedge, although they also have it. It came from Wallpaperbase.com. I replicated my google search (Images>green>large) and that one comes up on 1280x1024 size. I knew I had worked on it to get it the right One size of 960x800. Anyway, I won't put it back here since it's easy to find on Zedge.

On another note, I do test my wallpapers before posting them here. The reason for that is that I like to get the more prominent feature of the image on the right spot to make it visible. What with all the widgets and apps people put on their home screen they tend to cover the most interesting part of the image.

For example, a feature you'd like to see had to be a bit off to the right of center and a little higher. The height is because the "CALL" button on the bottom of the screen would get in the way. Now, off to the right is especially great for portraits as most most heads are slightly tilted (left or right) so if in your image you put the face in the exact center, some of it will go to the left screen.

So yeah, even if you see the image in another site, remember that I personally worked on the stock to make it just right for the One. I love the phone so much, I can't just put WHATEVER is online, no matter how nice it looks.  Tongue

Ok, so I got tired of waiting for Felix to come back and make my "Starship UK" one I requested so I decided to make it myself. This is one of my screen caps from Doctor Who's "The Beast Below." As you can see from my phone grab, the Union Jack is exactly where I wanted it and so is the title!!!

To Felix: No offense, you're probably busy with life and all that frivolous stuff! However, if you still want to make your design, go ahead. Thanks.

EDIT: I made these other two with the Doctor Who logo (Without the words). Since this is Doctor Who post anyway. I made two. One is lighter than the other. I like both, but the darker one looks better in my phone since the light on top doesn't look like a sun in my One. As you know, I have a clock with transparent background so the light kinda comes at ya in the lighter one. I suppose if you have a clock with a dark background it should be ok. Anyway, use whatever you like. Oh, yes, the logo is online too, but these are my screencaps from the ending credits as it is hard to find only the DW thing with all that space around.

Ok, I have a whole bunch more ideas, especially DW ones (Face of Boe anyone?) but I think I'm done for a while. Gotta get back to life.  Cry

I'm sorry. It wont happen again. I'm going to go ahead and modify the post above you to include my Doctor Who logo wallpapers and keep that post with DW theme. That'll be nice.

EDIT: Ok, just a few more for fun. These ones I made from Heineken beer ads ('adverts" like they say across the pond, lol). The one with the ripples looks really nice on the inspire. Go ahead, try it.

and just in case, I am including links to the original stock from which I made these.

Those are some nice wallpapers! I do like the way you've cropped some of them to fit the One screen better. Do you have any more?
