READ THE DISCLAIMER

Disclaimer:
The wallpapers showed below are ''edited'' by me/Gilamonyet to fit the loop sequence of the N900.
This means that the original picture of the wallpaper is NOT made by me so all the credit goes to the original owner.
Ive just found the original ones on internet. I used websites like Flickr to find panoramic pictures wich are allowed to be edited.
The other wallpapers such as Mario Land are found on Google on a wallpaper site.
Because they were on a site that shares wallpapers I used em without premission.
If you find your picture in here and dont want to be shared please PM me and I shall remove it from this thread.


So that being said lets start with some of the wallpapers ive edited to make em loopable for the N900.
I used the WPcreator found in the maemo-extras to use them on my Nokia N900.
Ofcourse if you use an other application thats fine aswell.
All these pictures are 3200x480 wich means U have to cut them in four yourself!

Enough talk, show me the wallpapers!

Chinese Garden - 360


Firenze - 360


Paris - 360


Piazza Navona - 360


Snowboarder/Mountain - 360


Mario World - 360


X-mas - 360 (Seasonal background)

Where can I find this WP creator?

BTW, it's quite easy making looping WP's manually.

Just crop a 3200x480 pic into 4 parts, then make a new text file in the same folder, with the same name as the WP and set the filetype to ".desktop". Then open that file and paste this into it:

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Background Image
Name=Your WP name
Hidden=True
X-File1=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/WP_file_1.jpg
X-File2=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/WP_file_2.jpg
X-File3=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/WP_file_3.jpg
X-File4=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/WP_file_4.jpg
X-Order=01
Change the bolded parts and copy the .desktop file and the four 800x480 pics into the .images folder of the N900. Activate the WP in the desktop menu,

What do you mean by, "allowed to be edited"? If you are referring to Creative Commons licensed photos, that's fine, but all CC licensed media requires attribution. Otherwise, what you've done is, well, illegal.

I don't mean to take away from what you've done -- there are some cool pics here. But, just saying that all credit goes to the original owners is not enough... Each panoramic photo should contain attribution to the original photographer.

Of course, I've said all of this before (in anlother thread), and anyone is free to "appropriate" media at ther own risk. So, enough of me being a spoil sport.

Yea i used the advanced search method to only find the CC pictures wich you are allowed to modify, adapt, or build upon.

Im aware of the fact that giving credits to original owner is not enough.
But hey I cant protect them if some1 else ''copied'' their foto and putted on a website such as a Wallpaper site.

I'm a designer myself so I know it sucks if your art gets ripped.
if I had the skill and the camera myself to take those shots I would have done it.
But I cant so thats why I took the pictures from the web .
