View Full Version : [iPad] Retina wallpaper - simple backgrounds only

I know a lot of you like pictures as your background on you iPad, but I tend to only like simple backgrounds (i.e. - a texture, a pattern, etc). I don't mind a really cool pic for the lock screen, but for the home screen I want simplicity. To that end, I thought I'd start a thread just for backgrounds like that.

I'm attaching an image as an example, even though the size isn't right for retina (2560x1440).

I posted these in the other thread but they seem more appropriate here. Can someone help make these retina for the new iPad?

Thanks!

those were the colours that looked the best with each pattern, but let me know which ones and which colours you'd like i can just do them ones, rather than me going through and making a load more.

I really hope I'm not imposing on you. I liked the third pattern, is there anyway you can make one in orange (my fav color) and pink (for the missus). Thanks in advance

It's fine, i just didn't want to go through making a bunch more colours only for them not to be what you were hoping, heres an Orange and a Pink

Me too, so i tried remaking it using the pattern tool by defining part of it as a pattern and copying it, but it turned out that as i only had it on one layer using that method, I couldn't manipulate the lighting correctly. I couldn't give up, and decided to rebuild the entire thing from scratch at Retina Resolution. I hope the original creator doesn't mind.

I hope the original creator doesn't mind.Nope, saves me from doing it, as I'm getting on a plane in a few hours. You have more skills than me anyway. I just dabble.

Anyone have a retina version of the gray linen texture that is used as the background for iPad folders?

Some of these are very nice! I am so over the 'nature scenes' a la InterFaceLift. However, I do wish that graphic artists who create these great images would stop using that vignette feature - or offer versions without it. For me, edge to edge is so much more appealing.

they are Retina sized (2048x2048)

if you look at any of these wallpapers from the new iPad, it downscales them to 1024x1024 for some stupid reason.

Wish I had seen this topic before, most of these seem more fitting here. Never understood how people could stand using detailed photos on their home screen. It's not quite so bad on the lock screen though.


Don't know if these will be of interest to anyone.

The Incase Ace Hotel is my favourite right now. When you view it on a PC monitor, it looks like it could probably use some touching up, but it seems fine on the actual iPad display due to how it crops the image.
