Smartphone Wallpapers

Recommended Posts

I purchased a Samsung Galaxy SIII roughly a year ago and as my first smartphone I've enjoyed the Apps and Custom Configurations, especially wallpaper. Like most smartphones you can use virtually any image as a wallpaper but I needed "vertical" images that could be edited into the 720 x 1280 layout ("if" I didn't want a scrolling wallpaper, which I typically don't). I also wanted the app/widget layout to remain but be complimentary to the image used without the icons obscuring details that would spoil the image. So I built them!

We have a desktop thread, so why not a smartphone thread? :)

Of course, some of my first wallpapers were Macross pictures but the collection quickly expanded into film, video games, music, TV series, comic books, DeviantArt, etc. Attached are a few of my favorite wallpapers for my phone. Share yours! All resolutions and smartphone types welcome!

This is my current wallpaper. Gotta say, I really dig that 2001 screen.

My home screen is my daughter buried in cuddly shark toys.

I believe the Samsung S2 introduced the scrolling wallpaper which is simply a wallpaper larger than the display screen that the user can reveal when navigating left/right with the screen menu system. It was a standard feature of the S2 but on the S3 it was relegated to a (free) App called "Landscape Wallpaper". I've attached two images below to illustrate. Admittedly the feature is rather fun, but I can't achieve the precise image placement I can with a static wallpaper and my home screen is the most important to me.

LOL for the cat girl art :)

Yeah, that anniversary image of the valkyries was one of the first Macross pictures I tried, but I couldn't make it work. I found too many of the smaller valkyries were obscured by icons, which largerly leaves the VF-25F Messiah. I felt at that point I might as well just have an image if the VF-25F on it's own, so I went with other Macross images.

The 2001 image is from GrahamTG at DeviantArt. The original is a massive 3,000+ pixel tall image really worth checking out. In order for the image to fit 720 x 1280, I had to crop some of this painting to make it work (a very traumatic process, LOL). Check out his beautiful original:

There they are :) I really like the Lock screen wallpaper. Symmetrical and easy to see even if the icons were there.

Here's one of my favorite anime themed wallpapers,

Any Macross-y ones sized for an iPhone 5? I very much like Kelsain's. (that's the best new Macross artwork in years, IMHO, it should be EVERYWHERE)

Can you share that YF-19 and VF-0 image. Want to use them on my SIII.

I can make a wallpaper for you using the Macross Valkyries Anniversary image, but I'd need to know the resolution of your phone and whether you want a static wallpaper or landscape wallpaper. All my wallpapers are currently in 720 x 1280 resolution (the Samsung S3 standard resolution), but I have larger source images for most of them. I've attached some of my other Macross-y wallpapers, so just let me know if you want any of those.


Archer

I've attached what I got to this message. Let me know if you're looking for anything else in particular.


Graham

Images attached to this post. Enjoy! :)

Nice wallpapers! I like the Boba Fett background. A very nice fit. I got some more Boba Fett if you're interested, in this post.

Mr March----I need 1136x640

I'd also like the Max/Milia, fighter-mode -19, and Roy VF-1 ones.

::edit:: Addendum----please have the "focus" of the image at the bottom, due to how iPhones arrange the icons.

I do too. Though upside down it looks like a cross between some evil snowman and Rosie, the maid from Jetsons. Honestly... I think that makes me like it more.

David Hingtgen Okay, the image is attached here. Keep in mind that like I said to Kelsain, I could never make the Macross Valkyrie Anniversary image work within the narrow phone resolutions. You'll see in the first image the poor VF-19 Custom gets cropped to fit the your iPhone. So what I've done is built both the cropped 640 x 1136 wallpaper as well as a 1136-wide version. I guess you can play around with each and see which works better. Or maybe download an App for your phone so you can use scrolling landscape wallpapers.

The other three images are attached as well, all at 640 x 1136. Enjoy!

Hey Mr. March, thanks so much for doing all of our requests! Do you think you can get a 1080p version of the YF-19 battroid mode picture (Or any macross picture really)? I've got an HTC One, so 1080p would look great. Greatly appreciate it, thanks!

Archer I'm not familiar with the resolution of the HTC One, but I assume that by 1080 you mean 1920 x 1080, the widescreen just done vertically. You're in luck because the YF-19 Battroid source picture is big enough that I can make a new wallpaper from it, but not all my source images will work. Attached is to this post is the wallpaper in 1080. Hope you like it.

wwwmwww: I haven't seen the movie, but that reminds me of the robots from The World's End.

Here's another neat one that I'm trying out. However you feel about PR, Striker Eureka is awesome.

I dusted off my old TIAS book and scanned it before cropping it to mobile wallpaper formats. Here it is:

I'm not seeing much performance there ;)

That is some great artwork. It makes a great wallpaper.

I love the layout of those pictures. They make ideal phone wallpapers. I think the second one is my favorite.

Keep them coming everyone!


Attached below are some images from genre classics that make great smartphone wallpapers.

I don't think you want it, (hint: my avatar right now is a crop of it.)

Here's some other stuff I have been using lately.
