Amiga 25th Anniversary Wallpaper - Updates

Hey,

I recently noticed no-one has made a wallpaper for Amiga's 25th Birthday.... and I wanted one!

So I made these, been tweaking them for the past couple of days, if you think anything should be different just ask.

The first is for widescreen monitors, (2560x1600,1920x1080,1680x1050 etc):

NEW UPDATED WIDESCREEN VERSION *** FIXED EDGES

Full Size: View Full Size

The second is for standard monitors, (1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600 etc):

Full Size: View Full Size

*** NEW ***

Updated WS version (fixed edges) - see above

-------------------

*** NEW *** Centred Version, Widescreen:

View Full Size: View Full Size

*** NEW *** Centred Version, Standard:

-------------------

People can use them for whatever... feel free to use the logo or whatever.

If people like these I may make more... I was thinking something with all Amiga models up the current date would be cool...

Just posting this here incase people don't read AW...

Alex.

Looks very nice -- simple and elegant. A bit dark for my taste, but I know many like that.

Hmm, mine is a 16:10 (1920?1200), I don't suppose you could make one to fit that? I guess I could just take the 2560?1600 one and cut and scale it, but it would get a bit cramped in the sides.

(Don't know how people can live with those modern movie monitors, I can never get enough vertical pixels for real work. )


Best regards,

Niels

Hey, yeah I can try and make a version for that type of monitor... I didn't know what sizes to make the wallpaper so made a super-big widescreen to try and cover all WS monitors and the same for standard monitors.

Personally I use the WS version on my 1680x1050 monitor scaled.

And about the vertical pixels - I totally agree. I started seeing that trend coming in about 2004-5 in laptop screens and then PC... I dunno why, I prefer vertical resolution much more except for when viewing videos/DVDs (rare for me).

Infact I want to try and get a WS screen monitor (Something like this) that allows portrait mode eventually... then I can have a regular monitor and the portrait one for documents/coding

Oh, right, I just checked those resolution numbers a bit closer, and both 2560?1600 and 1680?1050 *are* in fact 16:10 resolutions, only 1920?1080 is 16:9. So I should be fine scaling the biggest one to my monitor. Will try that.

Or you could get one that can turn 90 degrees like the one (HP) I use at work. That one's unfortunately only 1680?1050, but I sometimes turn it when I want to read some PDF doc or similar, then I can comfortably read a full A4 page at a time.

Niels
