Wallpaper Retina for Cinema Display

Wallpaper Retina for iPhone

Retina Wallpapers by Tim Van Damme

Tim Van Damme (@MaxVoltar) has put together this colourful set of Retina quality Macintosh OS and iOS desktop wallpapers. If you like to colour coordinate your precious Apple family then this set will provide you with wallpapers for: 27" Cinema Display, iPhone, iPad and MacBook Pro.

 

Don't try and download the images in this post as they have been downsized/upsized and optimised.

You can download, and appreciate, Tim's work via his Dribbble page: Retina Wallpaper

I have downloaded the Cinema Display wallpaper, and it does look mighty fine with a nice nod to Apple's prior colour form.




Just a preview of my next Desktop Photo in my ever increasing series, up to Number 6 now. Really enjoying doing these actually, trying to find the ones that best work as a wallpaper, at least from my perspective. I am really pretty fussy, so am very selective on the images I use myself for Desktop Pictures. But for the most part, the ones I have created I have and continue to use myself on my sweet 24" iMac.

This is my favorite by far and it's a recent photo taken during the storms of last week down the beach at Seaford near the Cuckmere Valley. Yes, I do live in a small sleepy town called Seaford, about 12 miles East of Brighton and about 8 miles West of Eastbourne. Spoi t for scenery down here so do expect further local type photos, but with personality. Not your usual Seaside Postcard snaps.

The beach was pretty cut up where we were, but the seagulls were a plenty with all the washed up 'bird grub'.
Hope to upload the various resolution sizes over the next few days.

I also now have a FLICKR Desktop Photo Collection which you can visit and see all images in all their glory, and you can download them all from there.

I may abandon offering the facility to download from this site as it seems pointless to double up on where these images are stored. So I will no doubt just provide links from this site to the relevant screen resolutions on Flickr.

Seems a logical idea to me frankly.




LandscapeIt took a flash of inspiration, all be it rather long in coming...

What to do with my photo collection. Surely I can do more with them then them just sitting in virtual stillness. So, in a very vain effort to create something more 'organic' than a still photo, I will be creating some special edition branded desktop pictures. For the moment, I will create just several sizes of each, just to see how it darn goes.
