I have seen several sites with iPad formatted wallpaper (1024x1024) but when you crop them to 768 pixels either right to left of top to bottom of the image (person's head) gets cut off. Does anyone know of an easy way to correctly create wallpapers for the iPad so that they won't get ruined when the device is turned?

Please Advise

Better framing.

Richard Cooper
Mar 9, 2010, 11:14 AM
What if you don't want a picture frame on your background? For that matter you could just make the picture 768x768 and create a black border of 128 pixels on each edge. The photoshop clone tool is tedious when doing this and for 128 pixels just doesn't look right. Any other suggestions?

What if you don't want a picture frame on your background?
I didn't mean an actual picture frame. I meant the photographic concept of framing. The focus of the image should be the 768x768 section in the middle, with the remaining edges more superfluous. Nothing you want as the focus should be cropped out of that middle section. I think the real photographers around here might be able to explain it better, though.

I think what Dejo means was that u need more space around the subject.

Lets look at an example that i made with one of my family pictures.

http://idisk.mac.com/patrick.neijenhof-Public/portret1.jpg http://idisk.mac.com/patrick.neijenhof-Public/portret2.jpg

Think this makes it a lot clearer. Although u would best make a picture that is square so it doesn't need to zoom and stretch.

Edit: A little to late but hey :)

Use a different photo, one with at least 128 pixels of superfluous background on all sides so that the central object/person of interest isn't cropped on the sides or top and bottom depending on the iPad's orientation.

If you REALLY want to use the photo you are having troubles with, I can't see a solution that doesn't involve photoshopping a 128px ring of background all around the periphery of the existing photo to ensure no heads are removed when changing from portrait to landscape.

How about an iPad wallpaper devlopement kit! I don't know what someone is going to do if they have a headshot of someone and they want to put it on the iPad. New photos can be compensated for when they are taken but existing stuff it going to be an issue. I wonder if people will use it more in Landscape or Portrait mode and if there will be the ability to lock the wallpaper so that it doesn't rotate and crop!!!

I don't believe it is a meteor shower. It looks more like a long exposure taken at dusk with, perhaps, a neutral density filter. The streaks are curved, therefore the light from the stars recorded as the earth rotates.

It just reminds me how much wasted space is on the iPad homescreen.

I hope they add the ability to have 6 icons across in portrait, like you can do in the dock on the iPad simulator.

It was taken by Richard Misrach, and called "Pyramid Lake (at Night)"

The default wallpaper is meant to say something. It is a shot of dawn. In other words it is pointing to the dawn of a new age of computing. They didn't commission someone to make a nice wallpaper, they commissioned someone to convey a message via a wallpaper.

Personally I find it pretty boring as a wallpaper, not being a big nature fan, and will promptly replace it. I do however, understand their choice from a marketing perspective.

Aranince
Mar 31, 2010, 01:53 PM
I'm surprised there isn't a thread about the iPad wallpaper. Has anyone started making any specifically for the iPad? If not, this could be a good way to help pass the time :cool:

From certain experiences, iPad wallpaper is best sized at 1024x1024 (because of rotation).

Here is a wallpaper I have in my collection that I converted to iPad size. If this thread takes off, I'll make more.

No, the 1024x1024 resolution will allow the image to remain intact without any black bars on the side for when the device is turned into landscape

Edit: By the way here are a few pictures that I'm gonna use on my iPad when it gets here on Saturday, all of which are from interfacelift.com:

In landscape it's 1024x728. But when you rotate it to portrait it changes to 768x1024, and doesn't rotate the wallpaper. Just changes the screen size.

Has that been verified that the wall paper doesn't rotate when you rotate the screen?

I don't remember noticing it during Steve's persentation or any of the videos of the ipad, but I could have missed it.

I seem to recall seeing in the iPad Guided Tours videos a shot of the home screen in landscape (in the iWork videos, I think), in which the wallpaper was rotated (it's easy to tell with the wallpaper they use). It showed a wider angle of the same shot, so I'd assume that Apple used a 1024x1024 image, which is cropped depending on the orientation.

Hah, that's funny. I used to have the same wallpaper as shown in the OP. Used it on my iBook G4.

I think it's going to be hard finding good wallpapers for the iPad, considering the dual orientations and moving dock. The composition of the wallpaper will be very important.

Cheers guys - i've tried a couple on the iPad simulator and they look great! You can set a different wallpaper for the home screen and the lock screen.

I think i'll personally I'll end up using something really colorful for the lock screen, and then maybe something grayscale for the home screen so the icons really pop.

Would someone be willing to test it out for me with screen shots so I can make sure it looks ok.

It's sized at 1024 x 1024 and is in jpg format... if anyone else likes it feel free to download and use it.

If anyone comes across any problems feel free to give me a shout.

Yeh, I saw that one, but I was wondering what on Earth those people did to that image to put it on their website. The right hand side of the image is just a mirrored view of the original image, except for the star patterns which were copied across. Strange.

Properly done at 768x1024


Sorry but from what we've seen so far, the proper way to do it seems to be a 1024x1024 square.

This is one of the better ones I've found, but like the others it's another "tiler". Apparently, AFAIK, the original image hasn't yet been published.

Hey all,

Can you guys do me (and those who don't live in the U.S. and so can't get our hands on an iPad yet) a favour and post up the iPad 'lake' wallpaper in all its high-res glory?
the ones I find online are all low res :(
I wan't to use it for the wallpaper of my MBP :)
(I'm using the low res version and it looks amazing!)

Thanks!

I saw this post on TUAW a day or two ago http://www.tuaw.com/2010/04/03/the-story-behind-the-ipads-home-screen-photo/

Proper is 1024x1024 to compensate for screen rotation, unless you want the black bars on the sides when viewing in landscape orientation.

And Interfacelift is sizing them at 1024x1024 too. That was quick!

Quick question:

Can one have different wallpaper for each page?

paulisme
Apr 5, 2010, 10:40 PM
They're not shooting stars. The streaks are caused by a combination of a long exposure time and the rotation of the Earth. As the camera's shutter stays open, the stars "move" across the sky, causing the streaks. It's quite beautiful, actually.

What paulisme said. ^^^

This is from Richard Misrach, the guy who took the photo:
It's a long night exposure where the moon is lighting up the mountains in the distance. I shot it on an 8x10 camera, so the quality is really beautiful and you can see star trails going through the sky.

Snow Leopard's background looks really nice on the iPad. Its almost like having the real thing! The leather Apple logo one looks really nice on the lock screen, especially if you have it in a black folio case. I've also attached the wallpapers for you guys at native 1024x1024. This keeps the backgrounds for slightly blurry / becoming pixelated at 768 across 1024 when you rotate the device. Time to go to typography class! *sigh*

I'v just made some iPad wallpapers and I thought I would share them with everyone. I've based these to be on the home screen more than the lock screen, that's why they are all quite simple. (I think a cluttered image makes your home screen look messy, unlike the lock screen).

I would be super grateful if someone could take some screenshots of what these look like on the home screen too, as I'm from the UK I don't have a iPad yet.

Enjoy!

I personally think they could have done better.

This is the best that I could find. Creating wallpapers of people for the iPad from existing pictures is going to be hard, due to the cropping effect of the iPad on 2 sides during the screen orientation change.

Think it's 720 x 480!

No, it's not the correct resolution. I've been trying to find one that I could use to make the correct size but have not had any luck thus far.

If you happen to know where I can get a larger size (2560 x 1440), that would be great!

Those eruption photos are just great. I have a question, how do some have more icons in the dock other than the standard 4?

The iPad can have up to 6 dock icons. You just drag em in.

This one looks pretty good on the iPad.
The original came from here (http://www.ipad-wallpapers.com/)

I'm surprised there are not more web sites posting/hosting iPad wallpaper.

It's a start but don't you think it is rather plain? I think a picture of a sun or even a whole galaxy blowing up as the background would be deliciously ironic. I just thought of this. How about a black hole eating a galaxy and the Apple logo in the cent of the black hole?

Here are the 1st 4. The 1st 2 are from digital blasphemy, just resized. I re-sized all 4 to 1024x768. Not 1024x1024 bc i don't use portrait mode at all ever.

Could you do iPad screen capture in portrait and post just so we could see what they look like?

They look pretty bad. I can make some 1024x1024's if you're interested. I have the originals on my pc.

Well here's another try. I personally like the one without the apple logo better than the one with but I included both just in case.

Let me know if you have any other ideas and I'll keep working on some more backgrounds.

(Sorry for not attaching them, File size got too big and I couldn't bear converting them to JPG just so MR would let me upload them)

Not bad at all Looks better without the apple logo as I realize that gets too busy, the black hole might need a bit more centering. Not sure if this is the best space picture to use but its good. How about with a great super nova pic.

To do a screen capture press the power button and the button down at the bottom of the screen.

Per request here are a couple more. As it turns out it's not so easy to find images that you can get a good 1024 x 1024 cut out of.
