Of course, it's all at your own risk, and unfortunately, artists are not the type of people who sue.

But, I have so say... The quote above sounds like this:

"Hey, if I had the money to buy the car, I would have. But since I didn't, I just took it from the parking lot."

Hmmm...

Anyway, I'm not here to deter you from making backgrounds. Just give credit where credit's due.

We'll yea you could see it that way but you could also believe in the goodness of mankind instead of looking it in a ''doom-thinking'' way.

I'm in no way "doom-thinking" (whatever that is). I'm an artist who has had a lot of media stolen over the years.

And, imho, the "goodness of mankind" means that people ask permission and give credit, not steal art and hope that they don't get sued. Really, now.

You are thinking that way because as u stated you had a bad experience when an other person use an artwork/picture (without asking) from some-one else.

Because of this bad experience your way of looking at this topic has changed in a negative way. Its the way we people think.

Anyways I dont want to end up being in a discussion with you or anything.
I catch your drift and I agree with you. I just dont want that people think I ''stole'' this stuff or something like that.

the only way to prove you didn't steal is to get permission. You'd be surprised how easily you can get it. I'm an artist too, so I, too, relate to tim

Do it like this:

Go to the site, and download the wallpapers and the .desktop file direct to your computer (not your n900)

Then open the .desktop file with a text programme - something like notepad or wordpad.

The lines for each image look like this:

X-File1=image_0.jpg
X-File2=image_1.jpg
X-File3=image_2.jpg
X-File4=image_3.jpg

Using the name of the file instead of 'image'

You need to edit them so they say

X-File1=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/image_0.jpg
X-File2=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/image_1.jpg
X-File3=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/image_2.jpg
X-File4=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/image_3.jpg

Put your mouse at the end of each line and do a quick 'delete' to make sure there are no spaces after the end which you can't see. Save the file and close.

Then put them on your n900 using the usb cable and the 'mass storage' method, putting all four images and the .desktop file in the images folder.

If that fails, download all four images and add them manually in order.

Hope I have explained that clearly enough.
You can also use the Notes programme on the N900 if you are mobile at the time Menu>More...>Notes

is there a preferred quality/resolution of each picture used? i made several pictures taken by some digital cameras and after load the image set, when i swipe between desktops i noticed screen flash/flicker, looks like flash rate cant catch up quickly, just not as smooth as default installed themes or image sets

Each desktop is 800x480 on the N900, so just add that number horizontally for multiple desktop screens.

One that uses all 4 desktops would be a 3200x480 image broken into 4 individual 800x480 images.
