It's a larger scale version to work with. Someone can make a higher quality wallpaper with it.
LOL, we totally did the same thing Did you use google images drag-drop to find a bigger version?

rather than extrapolating, i used the larger image from your link, great job btw, and using different methods of resizing sampling, i was able to simply resize it to 2048x2048 without loosing any quality.

Thumb resize.

There is an image of the Earth as a standard stock wallpaper on iOS already by the way.

I didn't remember the google images thing til after I duplicated and did the resizing (I think extrapolation was the wrong word, but that's okay, I'm an idiot sometimes) and then I felt guilty for being so lazy about my portfolio. It's due a week from today!

Can someone help me get these to retina size?

After trying this myself, it looks like I'll need help. This is one of my favourite wallpapers from my iPad 2. I have tried to find a bigger version online to crop and I've tried to use Photoshop to enlarge it (still learning Photoshop). Neither worked out. If someone could get this to retina resolution then it would be greatly appreciated.

As a side note, I've added a few more wallpapers to my post on the first page. As for everyone else, nice wallpaper submissions. I've added quite a few nice ones to my collection.

yeah, we make them 2048x2048 because thats the height of the new iPad's screen so that if you have it in portrait or landscape, it just crops either the top and bottom or sides off, but you are still seeing the image at the correct size, without it being stretched.

here's an image i've made to demonstrate how it works:



The main focus of your image wants to go within the white box, because that is the area that is visible no matter which way you hold the iPad, the rest is all just for background that gets cropped as shown.

hope that helps!

I made a vector copy of your Tiger image. You can now enlarge it to your hearts content and it will stay sharp.

Sorry for my ignorance, but I've never dealt with a vector graphic. I know what it is and everything, but I've never actually done anything with one. What do I do with the PDF after opening it?

People, please don't resize graphics up to a higher resolution than the original. There's no point in doing that as the iPad will do that automatically. It's going to look blurry and crappy either way. I keep running into these when I click on some of the images people have posted. Stick with high resolution graphics in here.

Indeed there is. But it probably doesn't originate from an 8000px NASA photograph :/

Hi I liked it too, someone added a link to the comment section. Though that photo is only 645x645. I'm trying to make a tiled 2048x2048 version that doesn't look horrible. But here is the link in case you want to try making one as well. I will upload mine if it doesn't look too horrible.

You can open it in Photoshop, specify the resolution you want, and it will "draw" the picture.

Think of a Vector graphic as having DNA. No matter the size it contains the blueprint on how to draw the picture, where to put the lines, where to put the colours.

The downside is vector art contains much less colour depth than normal artwork. In cartoons however, Vector is very popular.

Great job finding the Verge wallpapers. Here are my two takes on them. Plus a Calvin and Hobbes one that I may put for my new white iPad's lock screen.
