    My first wallpaper!! :D (Ocean)

    Hey!! I just made my first decent wallpaper! It's nothing too increadibly complex or such, but I enjoy it. =] Being developed within Ubuntu, and with the Ubuntu principles in mind, this is completly free, and your free to do anything you want with it. In fact, I encourage it, I'd love to see some variations or improvements too it. One more thing, if you use it for your desktop, I'd love it if you'd reply so, that'd make my day!

    Update: Licensed under creative commons.

    Standard desktop (For modifications, also the easiest on the eye.)

    Ubuntu desktop (Spent the longest on this one, you'll probably either love it or hate it.)

    Kubuntu desktop (One of my favorites, has a non-intrusive logo that supports your desktop without being too intrusive.)

    That's pretty nice. And it's pretty minimalistic, too, which I like.

    The only problem is that it's only 800x640... my desktop is 1280x1024. So it's pretty small.

    Your completely right. It seems that photobucket automatically resized it for some reason. Regardless, I uploaded another one this time with the proper measurements. Be sure to tell me if you want the Ubuntu or Kubuntu logo in proper size!

    Cheers!

    No bad. Middle one the text and logo is to blurry. Try using layers and only a slight blur on background text with sharp foreground text. Basically give the text a drop shadow. And sharp Ubuntu logo.

    looks great, but the ubuntu logo is too blurred, does not have to be as sharp as the kde one , but definitely sharper


    keep up the good work

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu

    First off, thanks for looking. =]

    Second off... yea I was afraid of that, the blurry logo. If I don't blur it enough it looks pretty bad, but obviously I blur'd it a bit too much. :/

    Thanks for the imput. =]

    Two questions:

    • Do you have source for this (.xcf or .svg)
    • Do you use Inkscape? (if you dont you should give it a try )

    Thanks for replying

    1) No, stupid mistake on my part. It's not really fancy though (multiple layers or the such) so you'd probably be just as well of with the normal image then the source.
    2) Nope, used gimp. Thanks for the suggestion, i'll give inkscape a try.
