well this did not end well..I never stop being a disappointment.I seem to think the majority of vl-std users are running p3's at 1024x768.

I thought the wallpaper contest was outragously difficult and no fun and no one would enter.

although I admitt I am not the greatest artist, I thought at least some may appreciate what a cheap cam and mtpaint could do to create a 1024 wallpaper, I guess to suggest some reconsideration and let folks know it's fun to try even if you can not enter

but alas it seems to win gimp you need gimp and a monitor that does at least 1400x and more ability than I can muster. sticking "vector" on a few out of focus pics to prove a point is just pathetic..evidently aquireing some 2560x wallpaper is more important than getting some disc's out there.and why do I even care? I had no interest in actually entering, I have the MMBD,..I think I'll take a break..later
cheers
ps...sorry for the rant..this just bugs the heck out of me

The requirements for sizes seem a little steep for the majority I feel also.  Until recently I never would of needed higher res wallpapers.  But now I'm using 1280x800.  So your size would  be stretched side to side pretty bad on my screen.  A circle, like the center of your daisy for example.  Appears to be egg shaped on it's side instead of round.  Even the VL globe at boot looks bad.
I guess the point I'm getting at is that it's much better to have oversized wallpapers that can be scaled down and cropped, then trying to up scale and crop a smaller image.  Doing the latter yields a kinda goofed up picture.

I'm guessing you are the person that's taken all the pictures we've seen thus far.  And guessing also that you used that "cheap" camera.  But I'm here to tell you that you have a great eye.  I've enjoyed all the pics I've seen, and that camera is definitely a keeper.  It/you takes very nice shots.

You're doing this with mtpaint? I didn't know it could do stuff like that.
