I love this device,

Now that we had it a few hours, show off what your desktop looks like. Also what version did you get.

Here is my desktop (Attached)

Yeah I need pretty simple backgrounds, I hate the messy look and when you can't see the icon because it's blended into the wallpaper.

Hey,
you call it a mess, I love it and that is what counts. (though I may change it out later today after at some wall paper sites)

You might want to change the thread title to "You Knew It Was Coming | Show Off Your Desktop but don't dare comment or criticise."

Hey, does it stretch it? I mean, it keeps the pic the right way round even when the iPad is moved from portrait to landscape. So, does it just stretch the image or crop it or something?

Interfacelift has lots of great wallpapers, and they've added an iPad-sized option. Here's my home screen:

Press the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. Just like with the iPhone. There should be some cool wallpapers coming out.

There should be a way to post pictures from my iPad instead of having to go back to the computer.

This may be somewhat of a stupid question, but isnthere a way to upload or home screen screenshots directly from our iPads?

Download the Photobucket app. It lets you upload photos from your iPad to your Photobucket account, and best of all, it's free.

Question for all you iTampon owners. When you rotate it when viewing the home screen does the wallpaper rotate as well or is it just the icons and dock?:confused:

Dunno. That's why I'm asking. So if you have a wallpaper thats designed for portrait view and you rotate your iPad. Your wallpaper will look pants.:confused:

You guys should try these.

Yeah I see what your saying. It does stretch or skew the image. It will zoom in and out.

I wish you could specify a different way of cropping for the landscape and portrait modes.

I'm not 100% sure I know what you're talking about, but if I understand you guys correctly, I think your problem might be because your picture is 1024x768 instead of 1024x1024.

Thanks. It's a section of the Orion Nebula. The colors of the gasses are spectacular. It's hard to believe that this section alone spans trillions of miles.

This. Check out this thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=889227) for a discussion on the wallpaper/rotation issue.

This is basically what the thread covers - wallpapers should be a 1024*1024 square, which allows the image to be displayed in 768*1024 (portrait) or 1024*768 (landscape). This graphic explains it:
