I'm a big steampunk fan and although the steampunk wallpaper looks great, it really doesn't work that well in practice; it's a bit too busy in my opinion.

I agree.  It was the first wallpaper I changed to, but I didn't even use it for a full day.  Just didn't look right on the screen.

I just finished making this. I haven't actually copied it to the car yet. I hope it looks as nice there as I think it does here...

I'd go with the Tardis! Where are folks getting these images from, and how do you upload them?

Where are folks getting these images from, and how do you upload them?

 

 

Well, I found all of mine via Google Images, by searching for the individual scenes I wanted.... 

So, like for the first quadrant, I decided a rotary phone would be nice. I went to images.google.com and entered "rotary phone". Then I clicked on "Search Tools" and selected "Color", then clicked on yellow. This gave me a huge selection of yellow-tinted photographs of rotary phones. I found one I liked, copied and pasted it into MSPaint. I wanted to capture as much of the rotary itself in the picture, so I rotated the image 90 degrees from how I found it. Then I resized and cropped accordingly.

My process with the next images was pretty much the same. First I tried searching "map", but those were boring, so I searched "map with compass" instead. I did the same thing with Search Tools as well, selected green, and there were my choices. That image, I was lucky to find, because it was perfect.

 

Then I searched, "concert", selected red, and found that one immediately.

 

And for the last one, I went through a few options. First, I searched "clouds", but they were pretty boring; they needed something else, but I wasn't sure what. For inspiration, I tried searching "Climate" and found lots of pictures like tornadoes, icebergs, polar bears, etc. I almost used a glacier, actually, but after I had it cropped into place, I felt like it didn't fit with the others. There was too much whiteness in the image. Finally, I thought to search "wind farm" and wound up finding what you see there, which I think works quite well.

 

If I may say myself, there's definitely some effort and creativity involved, in so much that you need to have an idea in your head of what you want the final product to be, so that you can search for the correct terms. And then once you're faced with a huge selection of images, you need to have an eye for finding ones that will look cohesive when placed next to each other. The technical skill, however, in my case at least, wasn't much at all. I didn't need to actually edit any colors, which would've required PhotoShop. Since I was only moving, resizing, and cropping, everything was possible in MSPaint.

 

And lastly, imgur.com makes uploading/sharing images incredibly simple, so I used that.

I decided the other one is too busy once I actually put it in the car. Darn. So I'm going to try something simpler, like maybe this...

Conveniently, we have Sprint, which I'm not a huge fan of or anything (I mean, they're alright), but their logo is yellow, so I figured, might as well.

...however, if you don't have Sprint or Android, then I guess you're outta luck. ;)

I just installed this one today. Gotta work on creating a 4 panel image though.

 

Thanks CarpeNivem.

CarpeNivem,

Those are great. They are both uploaded to my MFT. The simpler Android one is now displaying on my home screen. Thanks.

I found another variation on the Android logo...

...because I kinda changed my mind about the other one. It didn't really look right.

I like this layout. One change though. Put a sun  next to the snowflake for HEAT and AIR

Thanks.

 

While that does make sense, the reason I didn't is because a sun wouldn't be blue. As it is, I like that each quadrant contains only the matching color.

A snowflake version for Summer, and a sun version for Winter?  Sun would have to have a blue halo ;) .

 

PS  I love your wallpaper.  Trust it's OK to use, cause I have been - everyone likes it!

Year-round, the snowflake represents either what the climate system is trying to achieve, or what it's trying to combat. ;)

(But most importantly, it matches the color scheme which Ford decided, and I just ran with.)

My small contribution... the first is an astrophotograph of an area just below Orion's Belt, featuring the Horsehead and Flame nebulae to the left, through the Running Man to include the entire M42 Orion Nebula; I like it on the small screen.

 

And a personal favorite, my home wallpaper, the Space Shuttle Endeavor landing for the last time (2nd to last Shuttle landing). I like the composition; returning from the blackness of space ought to be dark...

 

Both from APOD

 

HAve fun,

Frank
