Wallpaper Question
« on: October 20, 2008, 10:22:05 AM »

Hey everyone I am fairly new to the site but I was wondering how everyone is making these wallpapers (I really like them.) Are you all using photoshop or just simply resizing them?  I have Photoshop I guess I could try that but was wondering if there are any other programs specifically for the zune to make them better quality.  I appreciate it!

I usually assess what the best quality will be by the original photo resolution and then go in and crop out wallpaper proportional to the default resolution of the Zune's screen.

Here is a good guide for cropping pictures

Original is 320x240. These would be height x width

The corresponding resolutions would multiples of the original as follows.

640 x 480
960 x 720
1280 x 960
1600 x 1200

...and so on. Resizing them works too but I find quality is lost very easily.

By the way I use GIMP. SO it's basically the same method as Photoshop.

For one last tip, just go and check my thread, all the resolutions are under the pictures so you might be able to get a good idea of what I am doing.

P.S. I know I am totally plugging my thread here  Wink
