    iPad Wallpaper

    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?

    But

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Computers are cool, OP, but they aren't magic. What would you expect them to do in this situation?

    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!!!

    iPad wallpaper

    Am I the only one who doesn't like the iPad wallpaper shown on the Apple site and promo images. I know it was commissioned by Apple and cost them some $$ supposedly, but I think it is somewhat lame..

    I personally think they could have done better.

    It is ok in my opinion. I'm not really thrilled with it, but I don't hate it either.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I think it looks awesome: a striking balance between the immensity of the landscape and open space, it feels clean, fresh and, thanks to the meteor shower, dare I say it ... slightly magical.

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

    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.

    +1

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