View Full Version : Wallpaper for you !

You might remember me I was here a while ago with a few wallpapers I made for Linux to share.
The problem was I had made them back in XP on PSP9 so they dont count.
I have been doing a few tutorials on Gimp (Good isnt it ?) and Ive made a new one with it.
Its nowt grand but its my first with gimp so be gentle with me.

One thing I have discovered, the nautilus file browser will access your web site as a ftp client and it will transfer files both ways BUT I uploaded this file and it became corrupted with stripes of strange colours and blocks of pixels all over I experimented and found it was doing it with all files.
So I installed GFTP and it works fine so if anyone has had this problem then I hope this helps. :grin:

Not bad! I prefer the first one 'cos the screws on the second one don't match the rest of the picture (that was probably a bad way of putting it). They look a little too cartoonish.

I think wallpaper is best kept simple and easy on the eye.
The second one was a gradients exercise, I think its an effective logo but a bit to busy for a wallpaper.
Thanks for the comments :grin:
